Once again, please find attached the suggested learning activities for the coming week.
Whilst I have uploaded the usual range of curricular based lessons, there is also the opportunity to make the most of National Chidlren’s Gardening Week by clicking here to visit and explore amazing website created by Mrs Pentony.
Enjoy the choices and challenges, but remember to please, put your health and wellbeing first.
Hoping you all have a lovely week and looking forward to continuing the journey with you.
Please find below your timetable for the week. You will see each day posted on our Google Classroom. This does not have to be followed exactly…make it work for you. If you do want some structure to help motivate you then this will be helpful.
Remember to have screen breaks, get outside lots (whilst it is still sunny) and talk about how you’re feeling. I am here for you too…just send me an email if you want a chat.
Our Learning Hero this week is Super Collaborative. This is a tricky one when we are working at home but there are people in your house to collaborate with. It might be you are helping a younger sibling, or an older sibling is working with you? You might be helping mum or dad with things at home…let me know…get mums and dads to email me! :0)
Have an enjoyable week. I am particularly excited about International Day of Dance on Wednesday.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter break and that you are refreshed and ready for our new term. I have put our timetable for the week below…make sure you have a little look. I’m excited for the term ahead.
I want you all to remember that your health and wellbeing is the most important thing to me. Make sure you are getting lots of exercise, that you are taking screen breaks and that you are talking to your grown ups if you are feeling overwhelmed. Remember I am also here for you to talk to so just send me a wee email. Activities do not need to be completed in the same order as the timetable…it’s up to you.
Below you will find your learning timetable for the week. You are not expected to do everything every day. Please make sure you are taking plenty of screen breaks and getting lots of fresh air. I’m looking forward to more wonderful learning this week!
Our Learning Hero this week is Rainbow Respect. Have a discussion at home about what being respectful sounds like, looks like and feels like.
I couldn’t be more proud of all the Primary 1 children and their parents for going over and above with the distance learning this week. I am truly astonished at, not only how much the children have engaged, but more so by their extraordinary commitment to quality learning.
The children have taken my ideas for learning and stretched them way beyond expectations, proving that even when you’re only in your first year of school, you can have exactly what it takes to be a learning hero.
Grace-May won the hero of the week for outstanding independent spelling, but, could I give out stickers from home they would also be going to:
Respectful: Lily – for working with her Mummy and sister around the house and garden to look after he environment.
Responsible: Celia – for tackling almost all of the suggested learning and much, much more!
Collaborative: Alfie – for working with William to make a bug hotel.
Resourceful: Marley – for finding an alternative journey into writing and creating a super poem as a result.
Resilient: Lochie G – for giving 100% to his learning despite feeling quite poorly.
Perseverant: Hendrix – for making continued efforts in his reading and writing.
Aspirational: Eilidh – for linking her learning in fractions with her learning in measure before we’d even gone there!
Reflective: Yussef – for his insightful thoughts in his moods and music learning.
Keep it up next week Primary 1, You’ve set the bar high!
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.
Here is you full timetable for the week. Please remember that this is just guidance and tasks do not have to be done at the exact times on the timetable…this is just to give you an idea of how long each task should be taking. Doing it at these times would help to keep you day structured.
Each day on our Google Classroom, there will be more detailed information and your tasks will be uploaded here.
Remember our Learning Hero this week is INDEPENDENCE so I’ll be looking out for this with every task.
Parents, please remember to let me know all the amazing things your children are getting up to!
Miss McKay is just learning too so if anything technical doesn’t work, then let me know and we will get it sorted.
P4 have taken part in the RSPB bird watch again this year. We spent some time outside recording the number of different birds we could see, we used binoculars to get a better view of them. We also noticed that there is not a lot of food around for the birds at the moment so we made some feeders for them too. We have been learning about all different kinds of birds by playing bird bingo.
