Children turn four in Transition. They attend five mornings each week and can choose their afternoon sessions, which are held in the Nursery class. They start weekly swimming lessons in this class. As in the Nursery, children can choose to play inside or out and now they begin to have more teacher-led experiences as they look forward to life in Form 1.
While most of the class are playing, a small group of three or four children will work on activities with the Form teacher, for example number work like sticking numbered cars in order. Other small groups may be involved with their teaching assistant on art or cooking activities. Meanwhile, others will be playing outside with dinosaurs or in the role play area.
