We hope you are all managing to stay safe, well and happy after nearly two months of lockdown. Here at Rossett Acre we have been busy preparing a virtual information meeting which we hope will answer lots of your questions around starting school, and we hope to be able to share this with you next week. Thank you for sending your information and All About Me forms, they really do help us get to know your children. If you haven’t sent yours yet, please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have attached some fact sheets with top tips for helping your child get ready for school, more to follow in the coming weeks.
Attached is a booklet with some great tips for helping get your child ready for school, as well as some guidance on what to expect in the first few weeks of school. Starting school can cause children (and parents!) to feel worried or anxious, and in the current climate this is especially true. The booklet has some brilliant advice about talking to your child about starting school. Over the next few weeks we will also be sharing tips and guidance on how you can work with your children on some key areas of learning at home. There is a section in the booklet which talks about arranging a play date, which unfortunately isn’t possible at the moment, however the rest of the information is useful.
The attached booklet provides a comprehensive guide to supporting your child through play, linked to each area of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The section on promoting literacy and mathematics provides some great ideas to support the building blocks of early reading, writing and number. There are lots of different activities which I hope you will find useful for any pre-school children at home.
