Task 1

Getting to School

This week, think about how you would get to Lliswerry High. If you can, you might want to walk the route to school with an adult from home.

As you plan your journey to school, think about these questions:

  • How will you get to school?

  • Will you be walking or getting the bus with a friend or adult?

  • How long will it take for you to walk, drive, or get the bus to school?

  • You have to be in school by 8.25am so what time do you think you would need to leave?

If you do walk your route to school, you might pick out some key things you will pass or take some photos on your journey.

Task 2

Using Your Timetable

This week, we are going to look at timetables. At Lliswerry High, you have different teachers in different rooms. This means you need a timetable to tell you where you need to be for each lesson, everyday. These are given to you on your first day in September by your form tutor.

As you start to think about using your timetable, think about these questions:

  • How will you know what day to look at?

  • We have a week 1 and a week 2 at Lliswerry High. How can you tell if it is week 1 or week 2 on the timetable?

  • What rooms would certain lessons be in?

  • Can you find the name of a maths teacher?

Task 3

Write a letter to your penpal explaining to them how you feel about going to your new school.

Think about:

  • What you are looking forward to the most?

  • What you are most nervous about?

  • What are you hoping to achieve in Lliswerry?

  • What will you miss the most about primary school.

  • If you could tell your teachers one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Task 4

If you had to leave a time capsule in your primary school playground that will be opened in one hundred years time, what would it include and why? It should contain ten items linked to you.


  • Items that would be important to you.

  • Items linked to a funny story about you.

  • Items with special memories.

  • An item which would contain some advice for future pupils.

  • Examples of technology.

  • Items that reflect this historical era.
