Story Time for Transition
As the children are not getting to spend any time in their new classroom for transition periods as originally planned, Miss Jolly has created these videos to watch with your children so that they can become a little more familiar with her, as well as some of the rules and routines of school life that they will experience which are highlighted in the stories.
'‘Mouse Club’ is a project designed to help the children develop a range of skills in a fun way, as well as make the transition into school settings a positive experience. Each child will be given a mouse to look after and become their school companion. There will be many opportunities for the children to personalise their mice during the first few weeks of school to give them real ownership of them. This will include naming them, making houses for them and including them in their learning. You could start some of these things at home too. We are also hoping to host some Mouse Club events in the future, where we will welcome parents and carers into school for some mouse filled fun.
The children will be expected to bring in their mouse to school everyday from September and we will be having a full Mouse Club day on a Friday.
Please see more information about this below as well as some activities and resources you can use at home to help develop skills that would be helpful for your child to start school with
