School Update re: learning for January 2021

5th Jan 2021

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a very Happy New Year. The year may not have started as we would have liked but I am sure we can work together as we did last year in order to give your children the best provision possible. 

Work for this Thursday and Friday will be posted on Seesaw (P1-3) and Google Classroom (P4-7). We hope to see all the children on these platforms on Thursday and Friday. If your child has not accessed the applicable platform, your child's teacher will contact you in case there are difficulties/issues with access.

Paper packs will be ready for collection this Friday afternoon between 1 and 3 pm from the buzzer door. These paper packs will work in conjunction with Seesaw(P1-3) and Google Classroom (P4-7). Timetables will be posted at the beginning of each week which will refer to work in the paper pack. There will be work for 3 weeks beginning 11th January. At this time we do not have a definite time for return but will keep you informed if there is a need for another pack.

In the pack there will be one of the Homework books we used before Christmas and this can be used to stick sheets in, record answers etc This will then be returned to the class teacher at the end of the 3 week period. Therefore it will not be necessary to upload photos of each piece of work completed. Teachers will include a cover note if there are any specific ways in which they wish you to return work.

Children from P4-7 - as they will be asked to change their passwords shortly, Mr. Donnan will change these at 12 noon this Friday 8 January. Their new passwords will be included in their paper pack. This means that any work to be completed on Google Classroom on Friday will need to be done before 12 noon.

Thank you for your co-operation and support.
