Dear Prep families,
You may have read in the newsletter last week that we are beginning to work on our Prep to Year 1 transition program for 2022. The transition from Prep to Year 1 can sometimes be a big one, and we are working collaboratively to ensure that our Prep students, and families, are best prepared for the change.
Yesterday, our Prep classes visited our current Year 1 rooms for a short period of time. Each week, our Prep classes will visit the Year 1 rooms and current Year 1 teachers to familiarise themselves with the classrooms, the current staff and the resourcing in these rooms. The classroom and teacher they visit each week will change. This is not an indication of who their Year 1 teacher will be.
Our current Year 1 teachers are thrilled to host an afternoon for our current Prep families on Tuesday 16 November from 2pm – 3pm. Here, they will discuss the similarities and differences between Prep and Year 1, and how to best prepare for the transition. We will also send information home electronically for parents or guardians that are unable to attend.
Please let me know if you have an questions.
