WEE KIDS WEDNESDAY
Our Wee Kids Wednesday programme operates every Wednesday afternoon from 2.00pm - 3.00pm in Room 1. All children are welcome up to 6 months before they start school. This is an opportunity for the child to get to know the teacher, the children, the classroom and the school surroundings.
In the sessions the children generally have a lesson about an alphabet letter and complete music and craft activities as a lovely way to support them in their transition to school. Parents stay with their child on these visits. Every child receives a Wee Kids Wednesday T shirt. This is a popular introduction to school taken by Teenaka Kennedy, the New Entrant Teacher.
A month before the child’s fifth birthday school visits in the morning and afternoon arranged. These visits are arranged with the new entrant teacher.
