Helping transitions into primary school
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.
