Transition to Primary One

It is a very exciting time as children get ready for the next chapter in their lives! Although we do not know exactly when the schools will resume, we aim to prepare children and families as far as possible for the journey! The City of Edinburgh Council have planned a transition project for the whole of the authority around the story, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.’ Every week we will post fun activities to do at home, both on this school website and on our school twitter page @Castleview_PS. You will also find information on the website The project begins on Monday 18th May so the 1st tasks will be uploaded then. We would love to see you share your Bear Hunt journey with us on twitter.

We are very excited to reveal our new P1 teachers. You will receive a special photo book in the post. This will tell you if you are going to be in the P1 Pandas, P1 Koalas or the P1 Polar Bears.

We look forward to seeing our children and families moving up from our nursery and we look forward to meeting our new families too.
