Transition assembly

Help your pupils prepare for a new class or school with this assembly, which uses the concept of going on a trip to get them thinking about what they might need for their new adventure.

Using this resource

This resource is designed for:

  • Children aged 5 to 11
  • Whole classes or year groups

To run this assembly, we would suggest using some props, like:

  • A suitcase
  • A passport or a photo of one
  • Some suncream
  • Sunglasses
  • A guidebook
  • Some items that aren't suitable for a summer holiday, like hiking boots or a thick jumper

You'll also need a whiteboard or flipchart paper.

This assembly can be used in conjunction with our transition passport resource.
