Transition Week


Before half term, all the Reception and Year 1 children took part in transition week.

This was a such a fun week in which the children moved between both Year 1 classes, the hall and Early Years to enjoy lots of fun activities. The activities were based on 4 books;

  • Not a Box
  • Beautiful Oops
  • The Dot
  • I Can Be Anything!

All the children were completely mixed up and put into 4 groups which allowed the Reception children opportunities to ask questions about Year 1. The Year 1 children were fantastic and helping and supporting the younger ones during their activities, too. Thank you, Year 1!

We all feel that it was a hugely successful week which the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy. The Reception children were able to experience what will become their new classrooms and meet the Year 1 team.

Over this half term we will continue to work with the Reception children, discussing their excitement and any worries about Year 1.
