Kingsbridge Community College
Year 7 Transition work
This is a course of learning to help Year 6 learners prepare for starting Year 7 in September. It contains a set of lessons. These contain sets of questions on a given topic. Each question has its own help video in case of difficulties. They are created by Sparx, an Exeter based company that we work closely with at Kingsbridge Community College. We currently use Sparx for our maths home learning and have been impressed by the high quality of the videos and questions. These resources are based on the same materials and will help you familiarised yourself with this platform ready for your September start.
