Rising 5s sessions
Getting your child ready for school
Rising 5's sessions take place every Thursday
afternoon and are planned to prepare children for school.They are for the pre-school children who are in their final pre-school year, so those who are due to start primary school in the coming September.
Rising 5's sessions are a little more structured
than our usual free-play sessions. We have a more formal register with the children sitting in a group and saying "yes" to their name and we look at letters and phonics beginning with the children's own name.
After the activity, the children play outside. We have packed away the resources that are usually available outside, so the children learn to make up their own games and amuse themselves in a similar environment to a school playground.
