Mrs Catherine Armstrong, our Primary One teacher, visits our Nursery once a week to work with our preschool children. During weekly lessons with Mrs Armstrong, our preschool pupils work on early literacy and numeracy skills, teaching good listening skills and fine motor skills; all the things that prepare children for their next stage of learning.
Mrs Armstrong said, “It’s great that the children get to know me before they start school and equally that I get to know them. After the Easter holidays, the children spend our lesson together in the Primary One classroom, which they love. Starting school is, therefore, much less daunting for these children as their teacher and environment are familiar. Having an idea of what to expect from school means that the children can really look forward to their time in Primary School beginning.”
