P7 Transition Notes

At Queensferry Primary School we are well aware that P7-S1 transition can be a challenging and anxious time for our pupils so we will continue to do everything we can, within current restrictions, to make this important time go as smoothly as possible.

The children have been working on their World of Work profiles which are shared with the high school teaching team and identify their skills and attitudes towards learning.

Next week we will have a virtual meeting between our classes and QCHS Depute Head Ms Gordon at which the children can hear more about the school and ask any questions.

There are weekly Sway newsletters available – the first two are themed around Being Brave and Changes
More to follow!

Please also remember that the high school website has a dedicated P7 Transition section here…> which contains more information and some FAQs.

P7 Home Learning Grid w/c 18/01/21

Term 3 Wk 2 – w/c 18/01/21

Please click on the link below for this week’s grid of activities, to be completed by Friday 22nd January

To help you plan your week, here is an example of how it could look. We are not sharing this as the “right” way but it’s an example of how to lay the week out with three core activities a day and the optional practice activities clearly identified.

Keep checking Seesaw daily for our updates and challenges, and continue sharing your posts of what you have been working on – we love seeing what you are getting up to!

If you are experiencing difficulties accessing any of the tasks, whether that is on Microsoft Teams, Seesaw or Sumdog, please get in touch with Mr Lynch or Mr Carson for assistance.

We hope you have a great week and please remember that we are here to support you in whatever way we can.

P7 Home Learning 11.01.21

Hi all and welcome back!

I know we said we’d share our grid on Monday mornings, but this is a sneak peek for next week! It’s taken Mr Carson and Mr Lynch a bit of time to get their heads back in to the home learning game, so this is a chance to have a look at the grid and consider what you will need to have organised for next week.

Remember that we are online to support you all day, and can be found on Teams, SeeSaw and email like before so don’t be confused or uncertain about what to do.

We’re looking forward to hearing from and seeing you all soon!

P7 January 2021 – some notes!

Happy New Year and welcome back to school!

It is with a little eye-roll and a tiny head shake that Mr Lynch and Mr Carson rejoin the pupils of P7C and P7L for this new term, but at least now we know the drill better than we did last time and can make the most of these few weeks of home learning!

We will be in touch through Teams to share learning grids as before, and would ask that you all get online and check your access to these resources as soon as you can to help us fix any problems.

IMPORTANT – Please remember that the email needed to access Teams should be the pupil’s Scottish Candidate Number (the usual 9 digits, starting with 150 for most…) but followed by

as printed on the slips!

We are still planning some work to celebrate Scots’ Week and our Burns Celebration while refreshing our knowledge and understanding of themes and topics covered in P7.
We will begin looking at our World of Work topic too, an important part of the transition process between P7 and S1. Please make sure this is looked at and understood by the children.

As ever, please get in touch with any questions as early as you can, and we’ll see you all again veery soon!

P7L – Meet the teacher

Dear Parents & Carers,

Please find attached a link to a virtual ‘Meet the Teacher’ video, where I share with you some of the key learning that will take place in P7L this year. I have also posted this to our P7L Seesaw which you should be able to access at home.


I look forward to meeting you when it is safe to do so but in the meantime, I’d like to wish you all a happy October holiday,

Kind regards,

Mr Lynch
