Transition into P1 at Sciennes

Transition Into P1

If your child is joining Sciennes Primary School we look forward to meeting you as soon as we are able to return to school.

During this time in our school calendar we would be enjoying transition activities to introduce your child to school. These are often based around a picture book. This year that book is ‘We’re Going On a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and all Edinburgh Early Years Centres and Primary Schools are taking part in a joint project: The Edinburgh Bear Hunt organised by The City of Edinburgh Council Early Years Team. (Find and Follow the Early Years Team on Twitter.)

Edinburgh Bear Hunt

The Bear Hunt website is live from Monday 18th May. Look out for weekly activities for the next six weeks on the Edinburgh Early Years website:

Here are the activities for WEEK ONE of the Edinburgh Bear Hunt.

The City of Edinburgh Council Early Years website has more information on how they are supporting transition into school this year during lockdown.

Meanwhile here are a few activities that you can use at home with your children to help them get ready for school: Getting Ready for Starting school


Please keep an eye on our website and Twitter @SciennnesPS for further transition details and updates.
