FOUNDATION TRANSITION

Below are the Yarragon Primary School - Foundation Transition dates for 2022.

Session 1 - Thursday 17th November, 2022: 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Starting School

Children will be greeted in the classroom before taking a tour of our school where they will meet other students and staff before engaging in classroom practice.

We will have group discussion on "What makes a great learner."

This day will give them the opportunity to experience what a day in Foundation will look like.

Session 2 - Thursday 24th November, 2022: 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Literacy

Today students are encouraged to share their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. As a whole we read through an entertaining BIG BOOK before learning to:
  • Share prior knowledge
  • Making life connections to the story
  • Look at the pictures for more information
  • Find letters and sounds we know
  • Complete a task to share our understanding
     
Session 3 - Thursday 1st December, 2022: 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Numeracy

Students actively participate in interactive counting videos before heading off to read, write and use concrete materials, for example: dice, blocks, rulers, to demonstrate our number sense.

Session 4 - Thursday 8th December, 2022: 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Zones of Regulation

Session 4 is learning to identify and regulate our emotions through our Zones of Regulation Program. This program is taught across the whole school including the ELC. Students play games to make connections to stories, learning to identify emotions from the different zones in both themselves and others.
