Animal Encounters at Reception 2013 Induction Morning
16th July 2013
On Saturday 29th June, we invited all of our new Reception children and their families for a very special animal-themed induction party at Wandsworth Prep. Hosted by animal encounter group, Oreo and Friends, children, staff and parents took part in a hands-on animal experience at the school as the final part of our induction process for our new children.
Oreo and his animal friends provided great educational entertainment for all those who attended and the chance for those who were brave to get up close and personal with a wide array of exotic animals.
As the transition from nursery to the prep school environment is such a crucial phase for our incoming Reception children, our induction programme allows for children to develop confidence in their new school and also provides the opportunity for socialisation with their new classmates and teachers. Hosting the induction party is a great way for the children to have fun with their new friends, and provides parents with the opportunity to begin to forge links with the wider Wandsworth Prep community.
We look forward to welcoming all our new families back to the school in September.
