What to expect in P.1.
Leaving Nursery behind and moving into P.1 can feel like a big step for both children and their parents. Your child’s P.1 teacher is there to make this transition easier for everyone by supporting the children (and their parents!) in their next learning step.
The children will still be learning through play, they will still be exploring, discovering and making plenty of use of the facilities within our school.
Your child’s day may be a little more structured than it was in Nursery and they may have to sit at a table for a little longer than they are used to, but they will also be learning in a variety of ways; while moving, exploring outdoors, in groups, on the carpet or walking around the school!
The Foundation Stage curriculum builds on children’s previous and existing knowledge and skills. Our P.1 teachers will liase with your child's Nursery school to exchange information about your child and the curriculum they have experienced. This will guide our teachers in planning and preparing for the individual needs of the children and to help them to settle into their new environment.
