We have a close working partnership with Rowanfield Nursery and have been working together to prepare the pre-school children for school in September.
In the early days, our staff regularly visit the children in their pre-school setting and share stories to begin to build relationships. During the spring term, opportunities are planned for the children to visit the school, have weekly stories in the hall and partake in forest school and PE sessions. In the summer term, the children are invited across to join our transition mornings including story time, stay and play and teddy bear’s picnic.
These activities have proved extremely valuable in helping the children become familiar with the school surroundings and develop positive relationships with the staff.
