Prep Girls Share a Book
06 February 2015
On the afternoon of Monday 2 February, Year 1 welcomed the Reception girls to the Prep Department for a Share-a-story and play afternoon. We are working hard to ensure a smooth transition for the girls from Westbourne to Prep as they progress from one school building to another.
Each Year 1 girl had chosen, and brought in from home, a story book to share with a Reception friend. They were extremely mature in then choosing a younger girl to read to and sharing the story and pictures with her.
After this everyone put on their coats and wrapped up warm for a run around in the BIG playground. Reception loved the freedom and Year 1 again did a fabulous job telling them more about school routines in Prep. Furthermore it was a great opportunity for the Year 1 girls to 'catch up' with their former Reception teachers.
This was a relaxed and successful afternoon and the first of many visits to Prep for the Reception girls before they join us full-time in September.
