This could be about: new subjects, the uniform, your expectations, the school day.

In an acrostic poem, the first letter of each line spells a word. The word is the subject of the poem.

Transition Challenge 1

Your first challenge is to complete a quiz about Archway.  All the answers can be found using links from the Year 7 page of the website, so it would be a good idea to read some of the information before you begin the quiz. 

The link will only work after 3.30pm on 9th March and you have 10 days to complete the challenge. Don't forget that when we meet you in July there will be prizes for those who take part in these challenges. We are looking forward to receiving your entries. Good Luck!
