P1 Transition Shared Story

This year we will use Michael Rosen’s book, ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ as a shared story to support our transition into Primary 1. Ms Nicolson will read this story with children in the school nursery and we will share a digital re-telling of the story too where you can see some of the staff who work in the nursery and in the Primary 1 classroom. The link to the digital version of the story has been shared with all P1 families in our  in line with copyright guidance from the book’s publisher.

P1 Transition Support Resources

The following video has been created to introduce our new P1 pupils to the different parts of the school and to some of the people who work here.

The document below was created by Wallyford Primary School. During your child’s time at nursery and through their time at home with you they will have started to develop the listed skills. This is by means an exhaustive list of what children should be confident in by the time they start skills as we will continue to support children in building their independence and self help skills.
