We know that preparing children for transition into another year group is important. It helps prepare children and parents for what to expect, and includes things such as where your child's new classroom is, who the adults will be, where the toilets are and will lunch time be the same.

This year we are unable to host our usual 'shuffle up' days which usually answer many questions and allay any worries. Instead we have prepared lots of resources for your to share with your child at home.
