Transition Week 3

The children are busy exploring the school and have met some new people. Here at Abbotswell, the staff work together as a team to ensure that all the children feel safe, welcomed and valued.

Although your child will have their very own class teacher, they may see many of our staff team during their school week. We would like these people to be familiar to your child so please take a look at our lovely staff team and see how many of them your child is able to recognise!

As you look through ask your children if they recognise any of the places?

Here are some links we think you might find useful.

School website   

This is where you will find the School Parents Handbook and can keep up to date with the latest school news and events.

Aberdeen City council website – education page

This is where you will find a variety of information from applying for school places, grants for school clothing and the school term and holiday dates.

Please keep checking back for more information.

Primary 1 Transition

It is hard to think that some of our children will soon be starting Primary 1. This is a very exciting and important time for them as they transition from nursery to Primary 1.

As always we are here to support the children and families through this process. During this term the pre-school children will be participating in many activities that will help prepare them for moving on to school. Please keep checking the blog as we will be posting information and activities that you can use to support your child during this exciting milestone of their life.

This week we have suggestions of activities that you can do at home that will help to prepare your child to be independent and confident in their Primary 1 class. Please click the link below.


The nursery team are available if you have any questions.
