    I start my new job in September as an NQT and I will be in Reception.

    Next week some of my class will be coming in for a transition day but it has not been confirmed who is coming in, they are just going to turn up.

    I'm not sure what activities to do with the children as some of them have not been to nursery before starting school. I was thinking of just having different areas in the classroom and letting them explore and play and make friends whilst I go round getting to know them, and maybe read a story by the end and prompt them to talk about it? Was going to find a book about food and talk about their favourite foods as they leave just before lunch!

    Perfect! I wouldn't even bother with a story necessarily. Just get them in and playing and then circulate, getting to know them.
