Bookbug transition session

We have created a Bookbug session themed around the transition from nursery to Primary 1 which is available to watch here(this will open in a new window). A template to run this session can be downloaded below. You can share the recording with the families of your new Primary 1 pupils to watch over the summer, and then watch again in class over the first few weeks, or try delivering the session yourself to provide a familiar activity for all the children.
