Our reception pupils have been busy preparing for the school’s open days this month, by creating leaflets and organising tours of the school.
The open days are for prospective children and their parents or carers to come and see the school in action, and the children have been keen to play their part in welcoming new pupils.
Reception class have been helping to create a leaflet containing information on the school and what new children can expect when they arrive. The leaflets will also include pictures and comments from current pupils, and will be handed out by the children.
Visitors will also be invited on a tour of the school, led by the current reception pupils, and will be encouraged to join in on activities taking place in the classroom throughout the morning.
Head of School Demelza Higginson, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming prospective new children to Heathcoat Primary, and wanted our current pupils to get involved with the process as much as possible.
“We think it’s important for visitors to get a feel of the school from the children’s perspectives, and the leaflets and tours will provide a platform for this. Our reception pupils have also had brilliant fun creating the leaflet, and seeing it come to life ready for the open days.”
We will be holding our open days on Wednesday 8 November between 1.30pm-2.30pm and Friday 10 November between 10am-11am. Anyone interested in attending should call the school on 01884 252445.
