We understand that these are difficult and uncertain times and we will keep you updated with all new information about what your child will need when they start school. We will soon contact you about dates for induction visits and interviews over the phone focusing on information regarding each and every child and family needs. Rest assured that we will support you as best we can.
Please use this page to look through updated letters, EYFS curriculum and loads of fun activities that you can already do at home.
In addition to the information below please look through the Reception class pages to see the types of activities your child will be doing to gain an insight into the school day.
Checklist to Promote Your Child's Independence
Promote independence by:
Putting on clothes independently
Going to the toilet without support
Wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds
Tidy things away in the correct place, e.g. hanging up coats, put objects in bags
Use a knife and fork
Use a tissue
Continue the learning journey:
Help your child to recognise their name
Teach your child to hold a pencil correctly using ‘pinching’ fingers
Teach your child to write their name using a capital letter for the first letter only
Practise counting out loud, counting objects, looking at numerals and identifying them
Sit and read a story every day with your child talking about the characters and events, naming objects, relating to own experiences
Talking to your child about their day’s activities, giving simple instructions, singing nursery rhymes (Speech and Language is a growing concern amongst young children and providing the support for them in this way is very beneficial)
