Hi all, Does anyone have any good ideas on how to ease the transition process for children coming into KS1 from reception (sorry I'm a new teacher!)? I have some nice activities to do in the first couple of days and I expect the transition period to last for around one month. In this time my idea was to shorten lesson time and have some activities set up for the children to do after they've finished their work i.e. playdough, drawing, games, lego etc. Gradually lesson time will increase slowly. I'm interested to know how other teachers manage the transition period and activities they do with their class? Any suggestions you have will be greatly apprecitated. Thanks, James.
