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.)
The Bear Hunt website launched on Monday 18th May and has weekly activities over six weeks on the Edinburgh Early Years website:
Here are the activities for WEEK FIVE of the Edinburgh Bear Hunt
The City of Edinburgh Council Early Years website www.edinburghearlyyears.wordpress.com has more information on how they are supporting transition into school this year during lockdown.
The weekly activities are available in Additional Languages:
