Getting ready to start and progress through Reception is not just about turning up on the first day. It’s about families preparing together to make that transition into school a smooth and positive one. With the right tools you can help your child’s personal, social and learning skills develop and grow so they start school and progress with confidence from the very beginning.
From September onwards teachers have their own challenges to face. Just imagine 30 four year olds at the end of a tiring school day putting on coats, fastening shoes and packing book bags – all personal challenges in their own right. By practising skills such as dressing and fastenings before children start school they develop the independence needed to function effectively in the new school environment. Imagine the reward for the child who puts on and fastens their own shoes and coat and is first out of the door to play.
