P4 home learning

Morning all P4 parents and pupils

I have attached a timetable for our week , I have tried to keep it as much like our normal week as possible but obviously some resources are not able to be put online so there will have to be a degree of flexibility.   The resources for the lessons will be available in our google classroom.  You do not have to follow the timetable directly but doing the tasks will help  give your day some structure.

I will upload other activities which you may enjoy doing and will allow you time away from a screen, these will be design/art based, check google classroom for these.

Our learning heroes will still be running and this week it is independence so I will be looking out for that during the week.  That said, I am here for you if you need any help or need questions answered.

Please be patient as I am currently on a huge learning curve myself getting used to google classroom and new ways of teaching and learning.

Emergency Provision for Keyworkers Update

STATEMENT REGARDING ESSENTIAL CHILDCARE
CORONAVIRUS 19 – LATEST UPDATE FROM THE FIRST MINISTER
The First Minister has just reiterated that following the closure of schools, childcare being established in each local authority is emergency provision for frontline keyworkers where there is no-one else in the house to look after your child and no other alternative. East Lothian will be opening a small number of Children’s Hubs but we need to ensure that those parents who really need a place get it. Please help us and don’t apply for a place unless it is absolutely essential. We are required to keep numbers in the hubs to an absolute minimum and will be prioritising Category 1 keyworkers in the first instance.

Key advice from NHS Scotland

Key advice for parents and carers In the home the risk of catching  or spreading flu/cold like illness can be reduced by:

• Regular hand washing with liquid soap and running water

• Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing

• Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use.

• You can teach your child to sneeze into the ‘crook’ of their arm rather than their hands, if they don’t have a tissue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQINuSTP1jI

• Good general cleaning of surface that everyone touches often e.g. TV remote, light switches, door handles, toilet flushes and tap heads.
