P1 Transition Hub
Please note the information on this page is for our P1 Classes of August 2021
and will be updated for our P1 Classes of August 2022

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.

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.
