1 Listening to you, working for you Transition Reception to Year 1

2 Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you The transition from Reception to Key Stage 1 marks an important step in a young child’s school life. It is vitally important to ensure that it works smoothly for children. The Ofsted report on the Foundation Stage 2006 observes that it remains a weak area for schools.

3 Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Schools should ensure that: There are identified key members of staff responsible for transition; The school develops a Transition policy which includes YR-Y1; Where possible a member of the EYFS team works for the first term in Y1; Y1 teachers should make themselves familiar with the ‘Continuing the Learning Journey’ (is being updated) FS teachers are not asked to “translate” EYFSP scores into KS1 levels. ‘This is a meaningless exercise and will lead to misleading comparisons’ (quote from Standards website)

4 Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you YR and Y1 teachers should ensure that: They work closely together to plan for the change and visit each other’s classroom; Time is made to discuss with children what will happen to enable them to express their hopes and anxieties; Y1 experiences which may be different for children are identified, for instance playground, toilets, assembly, dining room, ICT suite, PE lessons, Y1 classroom. YR children make visits in the summer term to Y1 to become familiar with these.

Planning should address the learning needs of all children; Resources are allocated to enable Y1 children to experience play-based activities for at least some of the day: providing opportunities such as sand and water, role play, construction, and outdoor learning; Speaking and listening is given a high priority in planning, as the foundation for success in ALL areas of learning. Planning for the elements of the mathematics lesson based on the EYFSP as a reference. Where appropriate phase in the introduction of the whole mathematics lessons over the Autumn term.

7 Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Listening to you, working for you Y1 classroom environments include: A learning environment which builds on the Early Years Foundation Stage; At least some of the following: sand and water, role play, construction, structured and resourced outdoor play; High expectations for how pupils are to operate in the environment, e.g. are pupils taking responsibility for resources, are they able to and given opportunities to learn independently, do they make responsible choices? Space in the classroom to enable children to move around and work at different levels.
