The Art Room team at Place2Be and BAFTA Kids have teamed up to launch the River to Sea project; an art project which will support children to cope with change, particularly those who will soon be moving from primary school to secondary or high school.
This project is designed for students in their final year of primary education getting ready to transition to secondary or high school. The project is a chance for children to think about their time at primary school, and the changes ahead as they ‘sail’ into secondary or high school.
Starting secondary or high school can feel like a huge leap for children and their families – and transition could feel particularly strange this year after recent school closures. Many children may feel that they have missed out on the usual end of term rituals such as leavers assemblies and saying goodbye to friends and teachers.
