"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

School Readiness

In September, some of your children will be starting Reception. It is very important that your children are ready for this step up into big school an there are lots of things you can be doing at home to get them ready. As we are at home for the majority of our time at the moment, this is the perfect opportunity for us to be practicing these skills ready for September. These skills include:


Getting dressed all by yourself 

Eat with a knife and fork 

Say please and thank you 

Wash and dry your hands 

Wait your turn to talk 

Take turns when playing 

Use scissors to cut out shapes
