P1 Transition Hub
Please note the information on this page is currently being updated for
our P1 Classes of August 2021
Welcome to our P1 Transition Hub. You will find lots of useful information to help get you and your child ready for Primary One at Riverside Primary School. Usually we would share this information with you at our P1 Induction Evening. As we are unable to do so this year, please do take the time to read through the information. We are looking forward to welcoming all our new children and families to Riverside.
Watch this space for a warm welcome from Your P1 Teachers

P1 Transition Project - We're Going on a Bear Hunt
Please see our Summer Activities below for some fun activities you can choose to work through with your child over the summer and for information on our We are Going on a Bear Hunt project. This project is aimed to carry children from the end of nursery, through the summer and then into the beginning of P1. This will help them make those all important nursery/home and school links.

E-book for Primary 1 children ~ May 2021
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.

Although all P1 pupils are entitled to free school meals some parents prefer to provide a packed lunch for their child. Click the link above for some healthy suggestions.
