Getting Ready For School
Supporting your child with getting ready for school is a priority at this time of year and here at Whitegate we would like to make your child’s transition as smooth as possible. Due to the current climate we are unable to follow our usual transition routine but we want to ensure that our families feel as supported as possible in this difficult time.
We have created a School Readiness Pack (resources available below) to support your child in continuing to develop the essential skills to make their transition to school as easy as possible.
Two parent guides to support your children for transition to Reception.
Stories to support transition
Two stories to read with your child to help them understand what to expect when they start School.
Phase 1 Phonics
These resources are to support parents in teaching Phase 1 Phonics (before children ar able to hear or recognise letters or the sounds they make)
Phase 2 Phonics
These resources will help with the early stages of Phase 2 Phonics where the children begin to explore letters.
