Welcome to our P1 Transition Hub
The information on this page is for our P1 Classes of August 2022 and will
continue to be updated over the coming weeks
Here you will find lots of useful information to help get you and your child ready for Primary One at Riverside Primary School, including our Transition Programme below with key dates for your diary.
We are looking forward to welcoming all our new children and families to Riverside.
Welcome from Mrs MacPhee, our Headteacher
P1 Transition Project - 'All Are Welcome'
Our transition project will be emailed to all nurseries. The context for this topic will be based around the book 'All Are Welcome'. The project will be started in nursery, there will also be a wee activity for parents to do with their child over the summer holiday and it will then be carried on and completed in the first weeks of Primary One. This will help them make those all important nursery/home and school links.
The activity for families to complete at home over the summer will be given to you at the P1 Parents' Induction Evening in June.
Take a look at our 'All Are Welcome' video

We look forward to welcoming your child to Primary 1. To help familiarise the children with school we have put together a video. Please share this with your child. We hope your child will enjoy watching the video and it will give you lots to talk about and encourage your child to feel confident and excited about their first days at school.
