Primary 5 “Stay at Home Camp Week”! 20th-22nd May 2020

Hi Primary 5 and your Parents and Carers,

As you all know this was the day we were supposed to be leaving for our Innerwick Experience. However the world had other ideas so instead I have planned a few days of activities we can enjoy and take the change to recharge our batteries. Our health and wellbeing has never been so important as it is at the moment so I hope you take this opportunity to take a breath and enjoy doing a few things that are different from what we have been doing over the past few weeks.  Enjoy!

Every week you should complete the following listed below. Every day I am uploading daily tasks on google classroom. Please do as much as you can and find a balance in your family focusing as well on your health and wellbeing, connecting with our families, taking time to recap and revise our skills and to develop our own passions and interests.

  • Reading – AR, listen to our class novel, read for pleasure, read to a sibling
  • Maths – choose something from the maths grids, the daily activity or bitesize

I post the daily timetable and activities every day on our google classroom. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Week Commencing 18.5.20 Primary 1

Hello everyone and welcome again to another week of distance learning.  I don’t know about you, but I’m absolutely buzzing with pride and enthusiasm from all your amazing learning last week and, with never a dull moment in Primary 1, I am sure you will continue to impress me as this week goes on.

So, you will see from the attached timetable that our learning this week steps away from toys and moves into the territory of a certain character who I believe is well known for having knobbly knees and turned out toes and there could even be a poisonous wart at the end of his nose!

I’ve had great fun pulling together the learning activities based on this much loved story and I hope you enjoy participating in them. Don’t forget though that they are there to support you, IF you want them, during this time when we are out of school.

Further to my lesson suggestions, there is lots more going on this week across the school.  Don’t forget that Mrs Mailor has her music classroom set up with lessons for P1 on a Wednesday, and on top of this we are now lucky enough to have Dave Trouton from the Youth Music Initiative with his weekly ‘Music and Me‘ sessions. Miss Gordon‘s classroom also has weekly PE lessons and this week sees her begin to set us weekly challenges to get us ready for our virtual sports day, so please remember to pop by and see how far you can challenge yourself.

Finally, this Thursday sees the return of Outdoor Classroom Day so there are lots of activities for you to choose from to help you make the most of the great outdoors and all it has to offer to support your learning.

Wow, what a lot we have going on. Pick and choose what suits you and when it’s right for you to do it.  All my lessons are uploaded at the start of the school week so you can scroll through the week and make your own timetable.

Stay home, stay safe and stay happy

Good morning P2B!

This is a very special week – it is ‘World of Work’ week! Every day you are going to be given a career and a grid filled with activities to choose from. You can do as many or as few of these as you wish, but I hope you will share your fantastic learning with us on our classroom stream or during our Google meet chats at 3pm each day. It is also National Numeracy day on Wednesday too so extra tasks will go up for that as well.

I can’t wait to see what you get up to this week. Keep an eye on our classroom each day for your career of the day!

Take care,
