For all our new children and parents joining us in September, we are delighted to welcome you to our school. We understand there is a lot of information to take in when you first start school and you probably have lots of questions so this page is especially for you!
Welcome letters have been sent to you today (22nd April) via email and post but you can also find useful documents and links here to support your child’s smooth transition to school.
We recognise how important the months ahead are for you and your child and aim to make the transition to school as smooth as possible. This comes at unprecedented times with the coronavirus pandemic but we want to reassure you that we will be following government guidance throughout. This may mean a change in the way we do things or amended dates but we know you will understand and support us with this.
We will use this class page to post regular information updates but in the meantime if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
NEW May 2020 : Play Circle with Kevin Graal
I wanted to share this beautiful video with you today. Kevin Graal, is an inspiring storyteller who has done quite a bit of work in East Sussex. He has recorded a video for the De La Warr Pavilion as a stimulus for creative activities at home with young children, and has also sent it out to circulate. It is a lovely video with a rhyme, a story and instructions to make a paper boat. Have a look below, I loved it!
Don’t forget to join in with this exciting transition project.
