New to Reception and Nursery September 2021

We want to wish a very warm welcome to Woodfield Primary School for all the families who will be joining us in Nursery or Reception in September 2021. This page is just for you and we hope you will find it really useful in helping you to find our all about our Early Years unit. 

Over the next few weeks we will post lots of useful information including links to give you all the information you will need as part of the transition process. We hope that we will be able to use this page to keep you as up to date as possible with information about your child starting school and even some fun activities for you to do with them.

If you need any more information in the meantime please contact Mrs Watson, Head of Early Years, directly by emailing:

An important part of the transition into school for your child is helping them to become familiar with the adults that will be working with them and beginning to learn their names and recognise their faces. To support your child with this here are our teaching team sharing some of their favourite stories for you to enjoy. But first of all here is an extra special story just for them:



Mrs Watson chose to share one of her children's favourite stories:

Miss Clark and her dog Luthor shared a story about love:

Mrs Kenny chose a story that she loves to read to Nursery:


We believe that it is really important that you know as much information as possible about what and how your child will be learning during their time in our Early Years unit. At your paperwork meeting we will spend time with you going through a paper copy of our 'New to...' booklet which you can take away to read. We have attached both booklets below in case you would like to read them before the meeting. As we are unsure of actual start dates and whether we will able to complete all elements of our normal transition these are subject to change. Simply click on the appropriate image below to access the booklet:
