Reception Update 2 - May 2020
Preparations are underway in the background for the Reception transition.
We know that your probably starting to think about next September so I thought you'd find this Starting Primary School page from the BBC useful.
We have set up a Music, Songs and Nursery Rhymes page to support transition. It includes:
Daily routine songs - learning these songs will help your child with the routines of school.
School songs - These are some of our favourite songs taken from the Collective Worship emails that Mrs Hedges sends out.
