Helping transitions into primary school

Rising 5's small.png

Rising 5's sessions take place every Thursday afternoon and are planned to prepare children for school. They are for the children who are in their final year of preschool.

Rising 5's sessions are a little more structured than our usual free-play sessions. We have more formal register with the children sitting in and group and saying "yes" to their name, we also look at letters and phonics.

We usual invite the children to take part in an adult led activity then after the activity, the children play outside often on the school field. We encourage the children to make up their own games and learn to play outside with limited resources so they are in a similar environment to a school playground.

Rainbows is a smaller session for younger children that runs along the rising 5's

The session will include a developmentally appropriate focused activity as well as time for free play for indoors and outdoors. This should be a lovely gentle introduction to a slightly more structured session, ready for the children to move up to the rising 5s session when they are old enough. 

Places are limited for the session, as this will be a small group only.
