The Bridge to Transition


A framework for designing a robust programme that transitions students to primary school

Frances Adlam

The Bridge to Transition systematically outlines the key concepts essential for a successful transition program, such as talking, literacy, numeracy, executive functions, social and physical skills, and well-being. Through a series of reflective questions, it helps teachers connect these concepts to their own curriculum documents and address the specific needs of their children.

More than just a guide on teaching practices during transition years, this book functions as an interactive journal, encouraging and inspiring teachers to continually question the purpose behind their actions. The goal is to foster innovative teams of educators who can develop the most effective transition programs tailored to their unique students and communities.
