Moving On

Activities to Support Transition into Year 3 

Moving into a new year group is a big step for most children. In school, we spend a lot of time in July preparing our classes for their move into Year 3, holding induction days and easing any little worries that might occur! Some children relish the change and are more than ready for the next step in their school journey; others find moving from the comfort of their current teacher and classroom more tricky. This is normal! 

This year especially, we expect children to have lots of questions and queries regarding their new classes, or even in just returning to regular school life. We want to help as much as possible, so do drop us an email if there is anything you think we could support your child with regarding transition. 

Below are some lovely activities, stories and tasks that will help children to reflect on their time in Year 2, but also prepare for returning to school in September. We hope you find them useful. 

  • If they haven't already, children can still write letters to send to their new teachers. Send to the Year 2 email and we will pass it on for them to reply.  
  • Letters from new class teachers have been sent via Marvellous Me. Please spend a little time sharing this letter with your child.

  • I'm sure you can think of lots of other fun, funny and memorable things from Year 2 aswell! 

Below are some stories that you may want to share. They deal with feelings around change, uncertainty and anxiety.
