Primary 1 Transition 2020

Moving on to P1 - Info for Parents 

Transition is what we call it when a child moves from one thing to another. There are lots of little transitions during the day – getting dressed, turning the television off, putting jackets on to go outside, all parents know that some transitions are easier than others! Other transitions are bigger, for example starting a new nursery or school. All children need help to prepare them for transitions.

In Edinburgh, all Early Years settings and primary schools are working together on one big project using Michael Rosen’s We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. This means that no matter what nursery they are enrolled in, or what primary school they move into, all children will be familiar with the same story and will have shared experiences. Research shows that shared experiences are one of the ways that we can support children during times of transition.

NB: the Bear Hunt Edinburgh website will go live on Monday 18th of May but for now, see the docs below for more info!
