Transition Day – 28th April

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.

You should have received a paper copy of the P7 Newsletter on Friday 15th April.  We thought it might be a good idea to stick it up on the fridge at home to keep track of everything going on!  We have also sent a copy to parents on our e-mail distribution list.
