Transition Activity Pack for KS1 and KS2 in three differentiated levels to promote teamwork and collaboration within small groups focusing on a rhyming couplets poem.
We recommend these activities are used with mixed ability groups. They are designed to promote British Values by encouraging each group to discuss ideas, support each other and to be tolerant and respectful of the views and opinions of others.
The task is based on a transition poem of rhyming couplets, which the children must, through discussion, rearrange in the order they think is correct. They must then explain their reasons for this order. Through further discussion about the year gone by and the year to come, each group will write their own rhyming couplets to read aloud to the class.
