With the year drawing to a close, meetings regarding transition for some of your children in key phases have been happening this week. Mrs Mousley, Head of Year 1 talked to our Reception parents about the move from the Foundation side of the school over to the Prep side and Mrs Woolley, the Deputy Head led the talk for our Year 4 parents who are transitioning into Year 5, a more independent and more mature year group requiring the use and development of a very different skills set. Reception managed however to slot in one more dress up before they move to Year 1 as Superheros – I did catch a couple of naughty Superheros running illegally down the corridor at full pelt this morning, admiring their capes billowing behind them – Miss Morris and Miss Edwards were suitably chastised by myself and Miss Sharkey. An additional reminder that move up day is on Sunday where the children will meet their new form teachers for next academic year either in person, via Skype or via a pre recorded video. I am sure they will be full of chatter at home time when they learn of their new class name for September!
