Transition Letter



3rd July 2024

Dear Parent,


Today your child spent time in their new classroom with their teacher for next year. This transition day helps children get used to a new environment, build new positive relationships with different children and helps them to get to know their new teacher.

Moving classes can be worrying for some children however hopefully after today, they feel more confident and are looking forward to next year. For those children who are still anxious, we will be arranging further transition activities.
