Year 2 EXTRA transition

There are two after school extra transition craft clubs being held for our current year 2 children at the junior site. These will be run on Thurs 6th June and Thurs 20th June. Please can parents drop their child at the main reception door. The junior children don’t finish until 3.15pm and staff need to dismiss their class. They will then be ready for year 2—this will be around 3.20-3.25pm.

Children will then work with junior teachers in the year 3 classrooms to help them become familiar with the environment before their main transition day. Parents/named adults then need to collect their child at 4.15pm. Names of children will be taken on the day—there is no need to book in advance, just come along.


The Mental Health Support Team (MHST) are also delivering a session with each of the year 2 classes on their worries over transition. This will be on Tues 11st June. They will help children with strategies to help with transition to the juniors.
