Messages From Year 7
During discussions in their PSHE lessons Year 7 shared all the things they were worried about before they came to Castle School. They thought it would be good idea if they made a video to show Year 6 pupils and any new pupils how they felt and how quickly their worries disappeared.
Some of their worries were about lessons, fitting in, the food, making friends, leaving their old friends behind and what they looked like. They have all grown in confidence, made really strong friendships and feel a real part of the Castle School family. Transitions Days and the KS3 Team Building event have helped them really settle in.
In their video they also talk about what they have learned about themselves and what the lessons and teachers are like. They have all shared their advice for new pupils and wish that they had seen something like this before they came.
