NEW FOR 2023!…
FREE TRANSITION LESSON
This year, to further support your young people through transition, we’ve launched a transition Lesson on our Treehouse platform.
This FREE interactive 30-minute lesson, with videos, and activities will get young people reflecting on their experience at Primary school and looking ahead to Secondary. Click here to ACCESS THE LESSON!
Treehouse is a truly amazing resource with 60+ hours of engaging content covering wellbeing and diversity topics, mapped to the curriculum, MetaSkills Framework 4.0 and SHANNARI. If you’d like to use Treehouse across your school, we’re currently offering a year subscription at 50% off (only £250) for the month of June!!
P7 TRANSITION COMPETITION
The lesson culminates in the launch of our #TOKBIGSCHOOL23 competition; The GREAT #P7WriteOff!
P7’s simply have to describe what it feels like to be on the verge of Big School, in just 77 words!
The text can be any style that you like – and we want you to be as creative as possible! So you can write a poem, a news report, a haiku, a story, a song – whatever you like!
You could WIN:
- The chance to have your entry read out LIVE on “We’re Aff Tae The Big School”
- Amazing prizes including:
- 1st: £250 spending spree with Love2Shop voucher + Brill Kid books for the class + Treehouse subscription for the school!
- 2nd: £100 spending spree with Love2Shop voucher
- 3rd: £50 spending spree with Love2Shop voucher
Our intention is to make this competition as easy as possible for each school to enter. Once the pupils have completed their text, we ask that you take a photo of each piece (or you can have a small competition in your class first) and send it to Tree of Knowledge via Twitter.
Please attach the photos to a tweet that includes the Twitter handles @Tree_of and @eSgoil. You must also include the hashtag #P7WriteOff – this will allow us to find entries easily.
If it is useful, you may copy the sample tweet below!
Today, P7 have been working on their entries for The Great P7 Write-Off competition, hosted by @Tree_Of and @eSgoil. We hope you enjoy looking at our work! #P7WriteOff #TOKBigSchool23
You do not need to include names of pupils at this stage – if a piece is selected as a winner we will contact you to find out this information.
If your school does not have twitter, you can upload your entries to a Sway, Google Drive or similar, and send the link to [email protected] and we will access them this way!
All entries must be submitted by Saturday 10th June 2023. Good luck!
