Mentoring at Monks Abbey - 'Getting to know you' and 'Talking activities'

January 2019 - Mentoring at Monks Abbey Newsletter

The ‘Mental capital and wellbeing’ project (2008) considered how to improve everyone’s mental capital and mental wellbeing through life.

  • connect;
  • be active;
  • take notice;
  • keep learning;
  • give.

Upper Key Stage 2 Diaries - Spring Term 2019

Year 6 'Secondary Ready Diaries'

To support the children's transition to secondary school and enhance mentoring opportunities during Year 6, each child has been provided with a Secondary Ready Diary.  The diary includes targets in preparing children for Year 7 (which has been created alongside a local secondary school's Head of Year 7) and pages for the children to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions about their transition.  During the summer term, Year 5 children will be provided with a similar diary to support their mentoring work in school.
