Transition into Reception Welcome


We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Short Wood Reception. Although we haven’t been able to do all the transition activities we had planned this year, we will hopefully have met your child before September. 
The current Reception children have been amazing in putting together some little films to give you and your child an insight into what happens in Reception.

Reception: Squirrel School

Squirrel School is our weekly forest school session. We are very fortunate in having a meadow, stream and small woodland to explore. This video show just some of the activities we do there.

We visit Squirrel School all year round, once a week, whatever the weather. We would love it if your child could bring wellies and a waterproof suit/ jacket and trousers to ensure they are warm and dry.
