New Starters in Reception


On behalf of everyone at Old Buckenham Primary and Nursery School, I would like to wish a warm welcome to our wonderful new co-hort of children who will be transitioning into Reception during the next academic year. It will be a real pleasure to get to know all of our lovely new and existing families that are joining us.

During the upcoming weeks and months ahead, we will use this space to share with you any information or updates about your child’s transition into Reception, as and when it is appropriate to do so. You can read an introductory letter that we have sent out to you here.

I have created some video links below that you can watch and share with your child. There are pictures and commentaries within these videos which will hopefully give you a flavour of what your child’s new class will be like. I hope you find them useful and informative.

*It is worth noting that during these unprecedented times, there may be some changes to this routine come September depending what situation we are all in. I will of course inform you of any changes as and when it is appropriate to do so. However, I thought it would still be useful for you to get a feel for the very important Early Morning transition that takes place.

I also have recorded some story videos, which you may wish to share with your child. This is another way that your child can get to know me, and hopefully look forward to hearing more stories when they come to school!

You are all in our thoughts and minds during this highly unusual time.
