Even if your child has already attended a nursery or pre-school, the transition to them starting Reception class at school is a big step. Parents in Touch have put together a free booklet for both parents and children. For parents we have included information about what happens before they start school as well as handy tips on preparing them for those first few weeks. For children there are activity pages which are designed to help them say a bit about themselves through drawing and pictures. These can be taken to school when they start to help the teachers get to know them better, they are also a good exercise in encouraging your child to talk about their favourite things which enhances their social skills.
