Transition : Reception to Year 1
During the Summer Term, we will be starting the transition process from Reception to Year One. We do this during the end of Summer 1 and during Summer 2 to ensure that the move from the Early Years Curriculum to the National Curriculum is as smooth as possible for all the children and for you.
We have planned a programme of informal visits and frequent drop in sessions to the Year One classrooms for the children, with their current teacher and teaching assistants in order for the children to feel safe and secure in the Year One environment.
Once staffing has been confirmed, children will meet their Year One teacher and teaching assistants and staff will drop into the Reception classrooms so that they become a familiar face.
Children will bring home at the end of the Summer Term Transition Booklets that they will have completed during their Year One visits.
• Who will help me? (Pictures of Year One staff and names)

• Things that are different
• My Wish (what they would like to get better at in Year One)
• Structure of the Year One Day

If there is anything else you feel would be beneficial to supporting you or your child with the transition into Year One please speak to Mrs. Gilroy.
