Starting School Booklets for Nursery and Reception

There are two Starting School booklets, one for Nursery and one for Reception. Each one lists the skills that children should aim to develop prior to starting school. Parents can tick off each skill as they are completed and work on the ones that need a bit more practise with their children. Children can be rewarded for each skill or once they have achieved them all. These can be given out before school starts in September, perhaps when you meet the new parents in the summer term or send the information and paperwork to parents. Get your free booklets here

Pattern Picture

The majority of children looking at the picture above will see a cat sitting on a mat. They may not necessarily notice the patterns without some discussion. Drawing attention to the patterns will heighten their awareness of patterns in general as well as in the environment.
