Starting School

Transition Time for Milborne!
In the Summer term our new Reception children usually have their first visit to school. The children all bring an adult with them to visit Rabbit class....First we chose a story. Which story will it be? Now both adult and child head off into the classroom to build a 'book nook'. Making the most of the environment, we have dens made with chairs and even pegged from the curtains! Great fun is had exploring the classroom and creating a cosy space in some very strange places. In this strange time of COVID-19 I will be asking parents to carry the activity out at home. Have fun building a den and crawling in to share a story. "Knock , knock, is there room for Miss Wittman?" Well, it is a tight squeeze so why don't you take a photo and add it to Tapestry for me to see.
Message from Miss Wittman:
It is a shame that  you cannot come into to school to see me but have fun talking together in your dens and hopefully I shall see you all soon - I will watch out for your posts on Tapestry.
Stay safe.

The start of a new school term is always exciting - but when it's your child's very first school term, it can feel a little daunting.

We've pulled together some key resources to help you and your child prepare for this new adventure.

Factsheets for parents

These factsheets are to help you support your child get ready for school. It's not about reading, writing and mathematic skills - rather helping children be curious, confident and ready to learn. Take a look at the factsheets by clicking the links below.

2020-2021 Reception

Home Learning Challenges: 
Each week Miss Wittman will put an activity for you complete; similar to those that she would be doing with you as part of transition.
Please share your learning on tapestry.
Please don't worry if you're finding something tricky. Keep things as simple as you can, try your very best and make sure you share a story every day.
Miss Wittman is looking forward to meeting you all very soon. 
Take care of yourselves and your families. 
Love from Miss Wittman

We hope that you and your children will enjoy being a part of Milborne St Andrew First School!
