We have started talking about going to Year 1 in September. I have explained to the children that all 60 Reception children get all mixed up and 2 new classes are formed. I have also explained that they will have a new teacher and we don’t know who that is yet but that they will be sent a letter over the holidays explaining who it is. We went into both classes and looked around. We found many similarities and differences with Reception. The biggest difference is that they will have special books for all the different subjects and they will have to sit at the tables for longer and not move around the class freely. We practised sitting at the tables!
Do you have any questions about Year 1 that I haven’t already answered? How are you feeling?
