Year 2 Transition from Sladefield

Hello Sladefield Parents and Children,

We understand that children moving from an infant school to a junior school can be scary for both children and parents. We work with closely with Sladefield Infant school to ensure that the children are faced with familiarity when they move up to us and try to ensure that we are able to build on the foundations of what they have learned from Reception to Year 2.


Our year 3 classrooms are equipped with resources similar to those at the infant school to ensure continuity. We also ensure every classroom is vocabulary rich and filled with opportunities for partner talk and collaboration.

We are looking forward to carrying out lots of fun transition activities with the current Year 2 children during the Summer Term 2023. 
Look out for newsletters that will give you lots of information about the staff, curriculum and life at Thornton.
We are delighted to once again offer you a smooth transition to Thornton Primary School. 
If there is anything in particular you want to know or want to see please let us know and we can do this for you. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us on 01213270824 or speak to your current class teacher who will then send us an email.
Sladefield and Thornton work closely in partnership with each other.
Thank you and see you soon!
