Designed with the help of pupils, this board game prepares students for making the transition to a new school - whether from First to Middle, Middle to High or Primary to Secondary.
Using four sets of question cards, covering motivation, solution, school and responsibility, students will learn about secondary school life and develop their awareness, personal and social skills, which promotes positive progress in their new school.
Suitable for two to six players, the object of the game is to collect 25 counters and for all the players to get to school.
The game is cooperative - there is no individual winner, either everyone wins or everyone loses.
Created by the East End Education Partnership Action Zone in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, this is a unique and fun way to introduce 10- to 12-year-olds to the issues involved in moving schools, and is designed to fit in with the PSHE section of the English National Curriculum.
