Hi there, I'm off to my new school on Thursday to meet my new Reception class. What should I prepare for a transition day? I'm only doing maturnity cover, so I guess the original teacher may already have some ideas about how she wants the class run but I was thinking of going over class / school rules / acceptable behaviour, doing some circle time games to get to know them and maybe just some play in order for me to observe the children and make some notes. I rang the school and was just told "you've got 'em all day". They have come up from the nursery in the school and its a unit set up so really they're just moving form one end of a large room to another. I'll be more of a newbie than them Any advice gratefully recieved.
