All settled and happy – a great transition!

September 18th, 2015

I am delighted at how quickly children have settled into their new classes. When I walk around school, I see happy children who are confident to learn in their new environments. This is because adults in school work hard to ensure that transition is a planned process and not a one-off event. For example, the Year One classroom has been designed specifically with transition from EYFS in mind. There are key areas in the classroom, just as the children have been used to, and they still learn through practical experiences. Although there are some tables and chairs, the design of the room isn’t ‘formal’ yet. Year One is a transient year and the environment and curriculum will change and grow with the children. One of the many strengths of our school is that we are reflective and constantly change our practice to meet the needs of all of our children. Transition isn’t scary at Roseberry!

    Mrs Barker and I have caught glimpses of our old friends in Year 1 having LOTS of fun in their new outdoor area! Miss Harmar has made an amazing mud kitchen for them! You are so lucky year 1!
