EYFS Induction Activities 2023


Induction activity 1: A is for achievement 


We love to celebrate achievements, big and small and we would love to hear about your achievements and milestones. Here is an achievement postcard that you can use to share your special moments with us.

Induction activity 2: B for belonging


We hope you liked the video welcome book. Can you make a story book about you? What do you want to tell your new teacher? Your book can include words, pictures or even a video message.

Induction activity 3: C for confidence


You are coming to Reception in September and will be in Jellyfish or Starfish class. We will be sending your grown ups a special letter to tell them which class you are in. At Darlinghurst we love to explore, discover, create and do. When you find out which class you are in can you create or make a Jellyfish or Starfish?  What can you find out about your Rockpool creature? On your first day bring along your discoveries or share with us your findings on Tapestry. We can't wait to see your very own Jellyfish or Starfish on your first day.


Induction activity 4: D for determination 


Can you practice independently dressing and undressing . Can you use a zip? Do up a  button or fasten so  Velcro. Have a go!     

Don't forget to practice washing your hands as you count. Can you wash your hands for 20 or wash your hands as you sing along to a song.


Induction activity 5: E for excellence 


At Darlinghurst we achieve excellence together. We are kind to others as it makes us feel good and makes others fill good too. At Darlinghurst we have buckets of kindness. Be a bucket filler too! Why not try and fill someone's bucket of kindness today and practice some of our kindness acts, ahead of starting school. We can fill up our classroom buckets, together.

Share, listen, be kind, take turns, include others, smile, help, be polite, give a compliment and more!


All of your activities can be shared on Tapestry once your grown up has their special log in. For now keep them safe*

* Dear parents communication on Tapestry will be shared during the induction progress, save your children's activities in readiness.
