Primary 7 Resource
MOVE is a free cross-curricular resource to help children progress from Primary to Secondary School.
Over three short films, join Sarah, Mark and Darren as they help us think about this exciting next step. What feelings are we experiencing? What will influence us? How will it change us and challenge us?
The videos are accompanied by icebreaker activities, group discussion questions and personal reflection sheets, which give the children the opportunity to consider this change through the key themes emotions, foundations and growth.
MOVE could be delivered by a School Chaplain or local community volunteer as a Religious Observance/Time for Reflection event. However, as this may be difficult under the current restrictions, the resource is also suitable for a class teacher to deliver under Health & wellbeing and RME outcomes. A teacher’s guide is provided as part of the resource pack, detailing the full list of Curriculum for Excellence Es and Os covered.
