Let's hear from the Year 7s...

Our current Year 7 pupils were asked to express their feelings about Woodlane, provide their Year 6-7 transition experiences and detail anything they believe would be of interest to you about Woodlane. They made the following comments:

    Before coming to Woodlane I felt confident and brave because I had a letter that was sent by Miss Hirani and it said don't be nervous. At Woodlane, I have made lots of friends at the classroom. I enjoy the playground and going on the computers. I attended the transition lessons transition mornings. I made origamis with the other pupils. I saw the classrooms and what Woodlane lessons are like. This made me feel more confident and brave.

    Before coming to Woodlane I was quiet nervous and excited because I wondered how I would fit in but now I have made many friends. And all the teachers and TAs always support me and make me feel welcome .at Woodlane my favourite subject is English and science because I love learning about Greek myths and science because I love doing experiments . I love being at woodlane and I am really happy here.

    woodlane has been a good experience for me i have made friends, and the teachers have been teaching fun lesson like the jelly lesson in science. I feel really happy and excited. I attended the induction evening it was good miss hirani told us who was the staf was and what they do. I also attended the transition lesson and transition moning and this helped me to know what the classes are like at woodlane and what to expect.

    Before coming to Woodlane, I felt kind of nervous because I was told what woodlane was like. I watched the transition video with my mum and it was reassuring because it seamed like it was a nice school. I attended the transition lessens which were fun and I was with the year 7 pupils. in the induction evening, we were given a teddy bear, a bottle and a comic book in a woodlane bag. the comic book was helpful because it had school expectations and it help me prepper for my first day of school. on the first day of school, I felt exited and nervous because I didn't know my way around the school. everyone is usually worried about making friends but I made lots of friends quickly because everyone is so friendly and kind.

    Before coming to Woodlane I was excited but concerned. When I came I was fascinated by the therapy dogs and made new friends. I love food and games. Also I like the water activities which are enjoyable also the hand bikes are fun. My favourite subject is Food Tech because I like cooking and the food we make is yummy.
