Be Awesome, Go big

Be Awesome, Go Big is a package to help Year 6 students transition into Year 7. It can be used by students and parents at home to motivate, provide reassurances and ensure that young people feel valued, loved, encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead.

The resources are based on bestselling children’s books You Are Awesome by Matthew Syed and Go Big: The secondary school survival guide by Matthew Burton. Every student has been provided a copy of both books and our thanks goes to Therfield Trust in funding this (please click on the link to learn more about the wonderful support Therfield Trust offers to our school and students). 


Student resources include sessions focused on:

-          `Being Awesome’

-          `Making the Change`

-          `Bouncebackability`

-          `Friendships and fallouts`


Students should work through each interactive lesson, recording their answers in the accompanying workbook.

The Parent/Carer resources provide information, tips and questions to help you open up discussion with your child about the transition and help prepare them for starting secondary school.

These resources focus on:

-          `Building Resilience’

-          `Growth Mindset`

-          `Helping Your Child Get Into Good Habits`

-          `Making the Change` and

-          `Transition into Secondary School`
