Abstract [en]

To deepen the understanding of how conditions for social relations are made in the transition from preschool-class to year one. The importance of social relations in the transition to school is documented through several studies and emphasises the importance of creating belonging in a new culture (Peters, 2010). Frelin (2010) underpins teachers task perception as crucial for the relational dimension of education. The preschool-class in Sweden aims to facilitate the transition, between preschool and school with the assignment of creating a pedagogical platform for processes of relationships. Lago (2014) stresses how transitions are discussed and made related to teachers didactic choices and are problematised from that point. By using the theory of social representations (Moscovici, 1988) I try to get hold of the everyday knowledge that are expressed and used by teachers and children about the transition and the value of social relations. Data has been created from a case study by participant observation and interviews with both teachers and children during their last period in preschool-class and the initial period in year one. The theoretical framework includes an interpretive approach. Consent form and information sheet was provided to all participants and negotiated during the research.

Participants are presented using pseudonyms and were able to withdraw from the study at any time. How teachers social representation of the transition makes that social continuity occurs for some children and discontinuity occurs for a few. To illuminate teachers professional task perception of the relational dimension of education in transitions, for participation.
