Primary 6 Timetable – Week Beginning 30th March

Good morning P6!

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.

Primary 6 Weekly Timetable 23.3.2020

Hi Primary 6,

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.

See you all tomorrow!

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.

Every day is a learning day!

Every day is a learning day! We had a busy staff development session this week.

Mrs McDonald led us all as we looked at how French and German are being taught in school – we looked at the feedback from our pupils too and all the teachers made a plan for their class!

Working together, we looked at how we plan for learning and teaching. We shared good ideas and asked questions of each other to improve experiences for our learners. We used the Connect, Extend,Challenge thinking routine.

We used Chalk Talk to explore the ELC Pedagogy Placemats – we asked ourselves how do they match our practice and ethos in school? What can we learn from them?
