Moving to the Infants' School
The transition from the Kindergarten to the Infants' School starts in the Duckling Room as the children have access to the Infants' School PE facilities, specialist music and dance teachers, as well as the school’s well-equipped hall and spacious playing ﬁelds. The Infants' School staff visit the Kindergarten several times throughout the year to observe and carry out activities with the Duckling Room children. During the summer term, all the Duckling children visit their Nursery class, either Herons or Moorhens, to spend time in their new classroom and to become familiar with their teachers and teaching assistants. These visits are arranged in small groups giving the children time to explore their new environment. By the end of their time in the Duckling Room, children are conﬁdent in their social and learning skills and ready to embark on the next stage of their school lives.
