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.
What a fantastic effort P4 made for World Book Day this year. Well done everyone on your fabulous A-Z activities. We had decorated eggs and cakes, puppets of characters, hand made board games, drawings of front covers and favourite characters and lots of sharing of books and stories which are precious to us. In class we had a character description quiz which really tested the memories of books we read when we were much younger and we had a comprehension scavenger hunt to find our information about the history of World Book Day. This raised the question of who was the greatest writer Shakespeare or David Williams? It was such a lovely afternoon we even managed to get outdoors for a read. More days like this please!
P6 have started a reflection carousel on a Friday as a way to reflect back on our learning during a week. One group each week will have the chance to write a post for the blog and Miss McKay will post this the following week. Below is our first reflection…
P6 have had a busy week. In Writing we have been doing our Big Writing assessments so we can get our new targets and we have started writing our stories for the BBC 500 words competition. In Numeracy we have made posters about our learning on fractions, decimals and percentages as an assessment. In Art we drew and labelled a brain to link with HWB. We have also been learning about strategies to cope with stress in our home teams. In ICT we presented our learning about how to be healthy and we also did surveys. In RME, we have been sharing what we believe in and discussing that we have a choice. We have moved our Spelling from afternoon sessions to morning sessions. This is working well because we are more focused. Our rule this week is ‘sc’.
Our class novel in P4 at the moment is Varjak Paw by S F Said one of the reading skills we have been practising is summarising. Every
time we read some of the story we try to summarise it making each summary shorter but ensuring we include the main points. We are getting really good at this. We have put our summaries up on display so we can recap what last happened and it’s really helpful if someone misses part of the book they can quickly catch up on the story.
Thank you to Heather and the team at East Linton Library for the wonderful extracts from the works of Roald Dahl – we loved working out which books they came from and talking about all the books we are reading just now.
After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)
