New beginnings 

Welcome to the Westerings family.  

We are truly looking forward to welcoming all our new children and families to our 2024 Reception classes in September.  Take a look below at all the useful information that Mrs Benstead and her EYFS team have put together for our new starters this summer... 

Stay and Play Sessions

New Westerings starters get to spend quality time in their new classrooms, getting to know the EYFS team further and making friends with their peers. Our sessions for 2024 are:

Monday 17th June 2024 at 1:30-2:45pm-  You and your children will meet our EYFS staff and the children will spend time in their new classroom and outdoor area.  Parents will stay for a presentation from the headteacher.  There will also be opportunities to taste our school lunches and meet our amazing WPSA.

Monday 24th June 2024 at 1:30-2:45pm- Your child will again go to the EYFS classrooms to interact with the staff and become familiar with the environment.  Parents will stay in the hall for a presentation by our Maths lead, Mrs Gaya and our phonics lead, Miss Stryczek. 

 Wednesday 3rd July at 1:30-2:45pm- Children only- This visit allows your child to find out which class they will be in and officially meet their class teacher.

In September the children can bring in a 'Chatterbox' - This is a decorated box with special items that tells us about them e.g. a few family photos (these will be used for a display), a special toy, a favourite menu, a ticket from a trip or holiday etc. 

Watch this space for an example of a chatterbox from Mrs Benstead

We can't wait to see your chatterbox in September! 

Coming soon............Transition Booklet- Please take a look at this over the summer so your child can familiarise themselves with the school grounds and people who they might see in school.
