News from Chilton Primary School –  Exploring A New World of Learning

An exciting learning journey is under way for four and five year olds at Chilton Primary School in Ramsgate. The new intake of two Reception classes are busy exploring their new world and are settling in with confidence and enthusiasm.

It is a big step to join a new school. There is so much information for the children to take on board but the caring and supportive Early Years team guide them through their first weeks as they adapt through gentle learning and creative activities.

Chilton held home visits for the children in the first weeks of term and the pupils also attended part time to get to know the Reception staff before their first full school day.

Hannah Cheshire, Assistant Head of School, is also Head of Early Years. She said: “They are now with us full time and are doing very well. They are enjoying life at Chilton and are ‘learning how to learn’ as well as adjusting to their surroundings, routines and the school rules.

They are getting to know each other just as we are getting to know all these new personalities who have joined us. It is an exciting time watching them make new friends and become part of our school.”

The children are exploring short phonic and maths learning as well as activities to develop motor skills, together with play activities that includes specially-developed yoga for children, and storytime. Next term they will enjoy a broader curriculum.

Head of School Kate Law said: “We strive to make this important step into full time education as smooth and enjoyable as possible for the children and their families too.

Our reception classes are finding their feet very quickly and are integrating very well. Feedback from the pupils and parents has been excellent.”
