Starting school in August?

The only thing young children and families need to do to get “ready” for starting school is to play and talk together, having fun over the summer

Let’s hope for some good weather!

Some parents or carers may be worried whether their child will be ready or not, especially if they have missed time in nursery. P1 teachers all know this and they will be ready for the children and take the time that they need to settle in.

Meanwhile there is lots you can do to help through play, games and fun

There are some posters below on how play and talk at home can build foundations for different kinds of learning – including the things you really don’t need to worry about!

Nothing is required or expected, but hopefully some of these ideas will be fun and help deal with any worries you might have.
