TLN Final Welcome back and Moving on Planning Doc

This selection of resources has been gathered by Stockport Council to support their Year 6 pupils to support pupils to reconnect with primary school and prepare for moving on and they have kindly shared the plans with us . The resources they recommend are posted below. All the resources are written to help pupils explore identity, diversity, community, and equality using  four questions Who am I? Who are we? Where do we live? How do we all live together?

Games are a powerful way to connect with others  – we have gathered and adapted some here so they can be played while social distancing.
