Starting school booklet
If your child is starting school in Reception, what can you do to help them make the best possible start? Find out how to lay the foundations for a great transition with our Reception starters learning pack – it's bursting with activities that focus on early English, maths and science skills, as well as supporting your child's physical and social development.
If your child is starting school in September they're probably feeling nervous – and no doubt you are, too! To help boost their confidence, we asked a Reception teacher (and parent) to create a resource that will begin to develop your child’s skills so they can make the best possible start.
My starting school scrapbook is packed with colourful activities that focus on early English, maths and science skills as well as supporting your child’s physical and social development.
Work your way through the pack to introduce your child to:
- Letter formation
- Name recognition
- Following instructions
- Story sequencing
- Recognising numbers
- Carrying out science investigations
- Identifying 2D and 3D shapes
Complete the activities in the booklet and you'll show them that learning is fun, exciting and amazing. You'll also be letting them know that, whatever challenges they face in school, they'll always have your encouragement and support.
