Welcome to the beginning of your CMCS journey

We are really excited that your child will be joining our school community.

The aim of this page is to provide useful and informative resources that will help with the transition process into Reception.

Transition Information

In the following videos, Miss Kurylo, Miss Dodds and Mrs Harkness speak about the transition to Reception, outline key information about our school, invite you to the teddy bears’ picnic and explain a summer challenge they’ve set.

Teddy Bears' Picnic invitation

Teddy Bears’ Picnic

We are holding our Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Saturday 10th July and we do hope that you can attend.

There will be a presentation by Mrs Harkness (Vice Principal) and Miss Kurylo (Early Years Phase Manager) where key information will be shared regarding the transition period, and life at CMCS.

Then, we will have our Teddy Bears’ Picnic, in which your child will be able to meet our teachers and make some new friends.

Self-portrait Challenge

We are asking you to take part in our self-portrait challenge!

When creating your portrait, we want you to be as creative as you can. You may want to use feathers, pens or pencils for your drawing. Or, you may wish to use natural resources, such as sticks or leaves.

For an extra challenge, can you write your name too?

Please then bring your self-portraits into school on your first day in September.
