The cluster P7s joined us at Lochend Campus for a curricular transition morning on Thursday 28th April led by Dunbar Grammar School staff. Eight faculty teachers set up a lesson in different classrooms and P7 pupils followed a timetable from 9.30am – 12.30pm. The bell rang every 20 minutes to indicate it was time to move on!
Gareth Hill (Active Schools Co-ordinator) and the DGS P.E department planned a sports session for P7 pupils after lunch.
Aims of the afternoon:
- Introduce P7 pupils to DGS in an informal and social setting
- Develop relationships through sport and activity with pupils from different schools
- Introduce P7 pupils to DGS P.E and extra-curricular sports staff
- Provide the P7 pupils with a positive experience of Dunbar Grammar School’s extensive extra-curricular programme
- Have fun!
The theme of our curricular transition day was ‘Learning for Sustainability’ with a focus on communication and collaboration skills. This theme will be continued on the three day visit to Dunbar Grammar School in June.
