We have planned a few events to support your child's transition to school. 

Please rest assured that we will be working hard to ensure that your child has a settled and happy start to school life at Westbury Infants.

We hope you can make the parents evening on Tuesday 20th June at 5.00pm. At the meeting we will share which class your child will be in and you will have the opportunity to meet your child's teachers. 

There is a great deal of information about Westbury Infants on our website, so we hope that you enjoy reading about daily life at our friendly and exciting school. Please also take a look at our FaceBook page where you will see photos and information. You will be able to get a feel for what happens in our Reception classes by visiting the blogs for Dragonflies, Caterpillars and Millipedes. Each week we share the learning that has happened.

If your child is joining our Reception Classes, here are a few things that you can do at home to prepare them for starting school:

• Help them to recognise and write their own name
• Show them how to hold a pencil and draw a picture
• Read books with them and encourage them to hold the book and talk about the story
• Sing some nursery rhymes together
• Teach them how to use children’s scissors
• Encourage them to eat independently and clear their own plate
• Make sure that they can go to the toilet independently and wash their hands
• Show them how to put their own coat on and do up the buttons or zip
• Teach them how to get changed for PE – this includes taking off their uniform and putting it together in one place, putting daps on the correct feet, putting shorts and t-shirt on and off, and putting their uniform and shoes back on (harder than it sounds!).

We have some links below to websites that will be useful for you, in preparation for this next chapter at Westbury Infant School:
