Primary One Transiton 2020/21
We are looking forward to welcoming all new P1 pupils to Sciennes Primary School in session 2020/ 21. Your child would normally have started their transition into Sciennes Primary School this term. However, due to the current restrictions our transition has had to be altered.
In Edinburgh, all Early Years settings and primary schools are working together on a joint project using Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ organised by The City of Edinburgh Council Early Years Team. 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 a shared experience.
Please look at the website http://www.bearhuntedinburgh.wordpress.com for ideas that you can use with your child to help them feel positive about the move into school.
Share your pictures from your Bear Hunt adventures on Twitter #BearHuntEdin and tag @SciennesPS
Please look out for a welcome pack which will be sent to your home address with information about school and P1 classes. Look for updates here for dates and times for starting school.
