New Starters September 2021

Welcome to the Oak class new starter page. We are very excited to be hosting three transition mornings over the next few weeks. We are welcoming the new receptions on Thursday 21st June, Thursday 1st July and Wednesday 7th July. Unfortunately we cannot have the new receptions staying for dinner due to ongoing Covid restrictions, so timing for each day will be 9:30 to 11:30. You will be able to drop your child off at the Oak class door and then make your way out of the gate across the playground. Your child will have a fun filled morning with myself and Mrs Pearson and I am sure they will return telling you some of the lovely things they have been doing. There will be lots of activities based around the book The Day the Crayons Quit. This is a whole school transition theme and we are very excited for our new receptions to be a part of it.


Your child will be bringing home a transition pack on Thursday 24th June. This will contain a range if information and nice activities for your child to complete at home. Furthermore, I will be adding some weekly tasks to this page for you to have a go at if you wish. These will be added to the website after Thursday 24th June. If you would like to send me any photos of activities, games or events your child partakes in from now until the start of term then please do, as these help me get to know your child faster and also begins to build their profile with us.


We look forward to welcoming you to Tansley Primary school and we cannot wait to meet our wonderful new starters.
