P7 to S1 Transition Resources

With our new S1 cohort enjoying their last day in Primary 7 today, we wish them all a fantastic summer and look forward to their arrival to Bridge of Don Academy in August. Whilst Covid restrictions have limited what we have been able to offer in terms of transition this year, we have worked very hard to produce a variety of online resources that can be accessed remotely over the summer to provide some predictability ahead of August 17th.

Book Week Scotland Author Visit

We started our Book Week Scotland celebrations by inviting author Barbara Henderson into school. Barbara was here to talk to four S1 classes about her eco-thriller Wilderness Wars. The novel asks the question: what if nature fights back? and is a fast-paced adventure story which explores our relationship with nature. Barbara told us about the difficulty in getting published, the inspiration behind the book, read the opening chapter and involved pupils in some very lively interactive challenges. It was a really entertaining session. Feedback from pupils has been extremely positive
