Hello Year 6 and a very warm welcome to your very own dedicated part of the Oasis Academy Wintringham website. We know that transitioning from Year 6 into Year 7 can be both exciting and a little daunting at the same time so we wanted to share with you some information about life at OAW.
Our Principal Ms Stennett wants to wish you all a warm welcome to our school. You can watch the video here.
Mr Scott, our Vice Principal, is also our transition lead and has put together a video welcoming you to our family. You can view this here.
Mrs Castle is our transition mentor. She is very much looking forward to meeting you all in person and you can find a lovely welcome message from her here.
Miss Peers (Head of Year 7) and Mrs McIntyre (Year Manager for Year 7) have made you a special video to give you a tour of our Academy.
Below are links to the different subjects that you will be taking when you join us in Year 7. Staff from each department have teamed up to introduce themselves to you and show you some of the excellent facilities that we have. They are also putting together some activities for you to have a go at whilst you are at home, so keep checking back regularly to see what is available.
Be Awesome, Go Big – Year 6 Transition Project
We are pleased to offer the Be Awesome, Go Big transition project from the PiXL Club and Hachette Children’s Group. This project is designed to be motivational and reassuring to help you be encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead. You can find the link to the website below.
We are really looking forward to you joining us and cannot wait to meet you all! In the meantime, check out our social media pages so that you keep up to date with all that is happening at OAW.
Year 6 Transition Support!
Kooth would like to offer support to Year 6 children with what is a particularly challenging transition this year. Children can access a range of activities and 1:1 text-based, free, and anonymous support at Kooth. The new 'activities hub' is a fantastic resource to increase emotional health and resilience in transition.
Here is a link to the Kooth Sign-Up page and a short video if you are sending information home: https://www.kooth.com/video
We are really looking forward to seeing you in September!
