Last week Primary 1 welcomed back their Key Workers from Apple Tree and Rothesay Primary Pre5. At nursery, the children had been learning about the ‘Gruffalo’ and had carried this learning on at school, looking at other books by Julia Donaldson. The nursery staff heard all about the ‘Stick Man’ and the ‘Smartest Giant in Town’ and even how to get the fruits of the ‘Flum Flum Tree’. They found out that Patricia at the local library had been helping us find interesting stories and had come into school to read them to us.
This linked learning has really helped the children transition from nursery to school and we are already thinking about how to develop this approach next year.
