This will be our last complete week in school before we finish for the summer break. Over the last week or so we have been talking to the children in school about the changes that lie ahead in preparation for their transition to Reception/ Year 1.
We have suggested on our activity sheet that the children put together a little portfolio to tell their new teacher and classmates all about themselves. This can be done however you like, including photos, drawings etc. It can include lots of fun things about you, favourite food, tv programmes, games and what you like doing best!
There are also some practical ideas on the activity sheet which will just help your child in school on a day to day basis.
All the staff in school realise that the transition in school this year will be particularly hard due to the unforeseen circumstances. Settling and reassuring the children will be the main priority when they return to school so that they have an enjoyable, relaxed and comfortable start in their new environment.
