"Rising 5's" / Transition to School (Back to the Sunshine Room Homepage)
The Rising 5's "Sunbeams"programme is designed to help the oldest children in the pre-school room prepare for going to reception class at their respective schools and to give support to the children who benefit from extra challenges to boost their learning in 40-60 months. This is achieved through a range of activities influenced by the Development Matters learning areas to achieve the child's full potential. These group and individual activities include PE games so that the children can practise teamwork skills and get used to changing by themselves. Most importantly, children have the opportunity to take part in structured phonic and math activities to prepare them for the school environment.
