Moving from Australia to Scotland (Glasgow area) 'round August this year. My son will be starting P1. I just want to get a feel for what his new peers will be capable of/what is expected of them.

What do they learn in Nursery?

Not overly concerned. Just wanted a rough idea.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Ds3 (6) is in P2 and wasn't (formally) taught any sounds at nursery (school nursery) but I have noticed this last couple of years there seems to be more emphasis on teaching them.

Thank you. Very reassuring. Especially to hear from a teacher, too.

Thanks for pointing me to the Outcomes, too.

Deep breaths. He'll be fine.

Hi Euphemia,

Just sent you a long and rambling message...

So hard to pick an area from here. Husband will be based in Hillington Industrial but not have to go in there every day (will travel elsewhere too.) SO they have said we can stay within a 40 mile radius of Hillington.

I thought we could pick a holiday rental and explore more permanent options from there. But then I found a nice little school near the holiday rental. In Beith...

But will check out East Ren and Bridge of Weir and Eaglesham and Giffnock and all the other places I've had recommended to me.

(I posted a question elsewhere on here somewhere about areas.)

Thanks, hope you're on the mend soon.

I'm glad someone asked this, I was wondering myself (and I am Scottish). I think my daughter can do those things!
