A Flying Start to Success

Preparation for Reception

As the children’s time in Nursery draws to a close the staff plan learning experiences which help the children to prepare for Reception. We begin to offer the children an opportunity to experience a school lunch in the school hall, attend more school assemblies and increase direct teaching time. We aim to make the transition as smooth as possible. Towards the end of the Summer Term we host a ‘Welcome to Reception’ meeting for all parents and children to explain routines and expectations and to address any anxieties and concerns.
