How to prepare your child for reception class

Many of the activities within the reception class will be similar to those carried out at nursery, especially in the first half term, including – construction, sand, water, ICT, jigsaws etc.

Children reaching school age will need to become more independent. We can all help them by getting them to dress and undress themselves, go to the toilet independently and hygienically, sit at the lunch table nicely, be able to use cutlery properly, be polite whilst helping them to understand to take turns and learn to wait at times.

All the above is actively promoted within the 3 – 4 year room.
