Reception transition sessions for Pre-School children
May 6, 2021

Pre-School children at Rydal Penrhos are taking part in transition sessions to prepare them for the big move up to Reception later this year.

Making the big step to full-time school can be a nervous time for a young child. At Rydal Penrhos, staff have come up with a special initiative to make the process a little smoother for Pre-Schoolers moving into Reception during the 2021/22 academic year.

The school has devised a series of transition sessions for the “Superstars” held in addition to the regular activities Pre-School children participate in across the main school site, meaning that their “new” surroundings next year won’t be nearly as daunting.

Pre-Schoolers who are moving up in September have also been spending time with Reception class teacher Louise Devilleforte during the sessions, who will be teaching them during their first year as a member of Rydal Penrhos Pre-Prep.

Mrs Devilleforte has created some exciting challenges for the group to help them find their way around the Reception areas.

These include the all-important classroom where lessons take place, the creative room where additional skills are developed and the outdoor learning zone – which has proved highly popular with Reception pupils since its introduction.

The transition sessions will continue throughout the summer term and will stand some of the youngest members of the Rydal Penrhos community in good stead ahead of the move up, replacing trepidation with eager anticipation in the process.

One thing is certain, Rydal Penrhos’ teaching and support staff are always on hand to provide support to children and their families every step of the way.
