Hi all. I'm starting as an NQT in a reception class in September but have my induction days for my class this week. Half on Monday and the other half on Thursday. I've never taught reception before so I'm not too up on what to expect from them, in terms of how much they are capable of. Some of the children will know each other from pre school but they are a mixture really. I only have them for an hour and will spend the majority of the time having them go off and play and interact with each other. I was planning on doing something when we first enter the class to learn their names but I wasn't sure how to approach this. I was thinking a circle time game as I'm guessing most will be used to this structure from pre school. I then want to let them play and interact and I will go round and mingle with them and find out a bit about them and then at the end of the hour I wanted to bring them together and read them a short story to wind down. Does this seem like an ok induction hour?! Any suggestions on the circle game to start it off?
