In Edinburgh, all Early Years settings and primary schools are working together on one big project using Michael Rosen’s We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. This means that no matter what nursery they are enrolled in, or what primary school they move into, all children will be familiar with the same story and will have shared experiences. Research shows that shared experiences are one of the ways that we can support children during times of transition.
The journey back to nursery or school with Edinburgh Bear
In Edinburgh, children who are under 5 are invited to join in a City-wide bear hunt adventure with Edinburgh Bear. Activities and resources will be shared each week over a six-week period via your child’s Learning Journals and a dedicated bear hunt website as a starter to get children thinking about the journey to their new school.
