Reception To Year 1 Transition


 Share

Recommended Posts

I'd be really grateful for some advice - I'm beginning a new post in September with a year 1 class - it's my first teaching post and my teaching practices have been in nursery at the beginning of the year and Y1 at the end of the year. I'm a bit worried because I've done very little observation at the beginning of Y1 and don't really know if I should be teaching a very formal numeracy/literacy hour and foundation subjects in the afternoon or having a focus activity and free choice type days - I'd be interested to know what other people day and any top tips for the first week? I' m really excited about my post and want to get off to a good start!

 

Any advice would be great - thanks.

Year 1 should be working very much the same as they were at the end of reception (60% adult directed and 40% child initiated) but this is very much down to how the school wants you to work. Good Luck in the new job

Have to agree with Marion that you will need to ask in school but if you havent read them, "Smooth transitions" and "Making it work in year 1" could be worth a read and may enable you to be more play based than formal even if school require that approach. Have you not picked up any vibes?

 

Good luck and congrats on the job.
