This game teaches children that they will need to be organised and prepared as they enter year 7. The player will be given a lesson plan for the day and has to click on items that they think are appropriate to put in their rucksack for that particular day at school. Correct items will score points and inappropriate items will deduct points.
This game prepares pupils for entering a much larger school environment. The idea of the game is for the player to navigate their way around a large school 'map' according to the lessons on their timetable. It's a race against time to find the classroom before the start of the lesson!
The final game in the series introduces the exciting extra-curricular activities available at secondary school. The aim of the game is for the player to reach the mountain peak by doing positive things and seizing as many opportunities as possible. There are various obstacles along the way, so the journey isn't always a smooth ride!
From getting ready in the morning to making the most of exciting new subjects and activities, these fun games will help you to get ready to Move on Up! How far up the leaderboard can you climb?
Moving from primary to secondary is a big step and every year 500,000 11 year olds make this journey. We understand it can be a challenging time for some pupils, but a difficult transition can prevent many able young people realising their potential and ultimately progressing to university and professional careers. We have therefore created the 'Move On Up' games to help them to prepare for the changes ahead.
We have created 3 games which aim to alleviate some of the common concerns about secondary school and make year 6 pupils feel excited about their next step. A little bit of information about each game is detailed here, but don't take our word for it... have a go!
We will use low-level web analytics to check how many students are accessing and engaging with the games.
We will not take or store any personal data about the users. We only invite players to enter a nickname so they can appear on the leader board if they score highly.
