Children from Shiplake Village Nursery came up to join teachers and pupils in Reception today. They spend the morning with us every Wednesday and already seem very familiar with the faces, the feel and look of the school. How advanced these children are already : They chose a copy of the Financial Times to work with, Charlie and Lola may have to take a back seat with this future cohort. The prospect of ‘ Big School’ can be intimidating for some but by introducing nursery children to school life in this innovative and relaxed way, moving on up is an exciting not a daunting prospect. ( We hope it helps the parents get used to the idea too).
