Stay and Play After School
Stay and Play Session 1 – Afternoon
This will be your child’s first opportunity to spend some time in school on their own. The children will visit the EYFS unit in three groups depending upon their birthday. You will be meet by the Early Years Teachers who will then take the children down to the unit. Over the next hour, the children will be given opportunity to play and become familiar with the environment and start to get to know the other children who will be in their year group. Whilst the children are playing, parents will be invited to stay for some refreshments and meet our Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher, some of our School Governors and current parents. This is a great opportunity to ask questions of existing parents and get to know the school community a little better.
Stay and play Session 2- Full day with picnic lunch
This is the final visit for the children and will be the only time that the children all come in at the same time. At this visit, the class teachers will tell the children which class they are going to be in. The children will then be collected in class groups and will be taken to their new classroom within the EYFS unit. Once again, they will then get to play with a range of activities and get to know the children who will be in their class.
Once this session is over the children will be sent home with a Summer Holiday Activity to complete and bring back to school in September. They will also be given a photo sheet of all the children who will be in their class and an information booklet about their new teacher.
