Hello everyone! This is the guidance for a very unusual Welcome Day! We hope everyone who participates in this day, whether it is in a primary classroom or in the home environment enjoys what we have created and feels they have learned lots about Penrice Academy.

Please note:
  • The videos are accessed via a Youtube link.
  • Science equipment and master copies of resources ready for photocopying have been delivered to Primary Schools for those students experiencing Welcome Day at their primary school.
  • There are number of resources available to download below – it would be a good idea to do this before the lessons.
  • There are examples of the postcard challenge available below.  These are useful examples and also give lots of information about the Year Team who will be working with Year 7 in September.

Postcard Challenge

At the end of our Welcome Day I set a postcard challenge for our incoming Year 7 students. These postcards should be brought into school when we start in September and will create a fantastic display in each tutor room with we can all learn about each other. To help our new students get started the Year 7 Team have created their own postcards. Have a look and find out about each team member (you can click on the image to see the postcard bigger)…
