Primary One W/C 11th May 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new week of learning.

This week sees our school take part in our annual celebrations and explorations of the ‘World of Work‘ ‘National Numeracy Day‘. On top of our regular activities, you can find some links to additional challenges that you might like to take part in – I wonder in which direction you will take your learning this week?!

Our learning hero focus is on resilience. I know that many of you have been showing these powers during our time in lockdown and it has been an ideal opportunity for you to develop these life skills in lots of different ways – don’t forget to share with us what you have been doing this week that shows you at your best, whether it be demonstrating your resilience or any other of your learning hero powers.

Attached, as ever, is our timetable for the week with lots of suggestions for learning and developing your knowledge and skills. Last week saw many of you really engaging in our IDL and I’m super excited to see where this might take you this week.

Have lots of fun, stay safe, learn and play hard!

Week Commencing 11th May

Primary 1 – Week Commencing 4th May 2020

It may only be a short school week for us but in Primary 1 that’s not going to stop us getting our teeth stuck in to some amazing learning.   This week we have a big focus on science and technologies to help us explore our interdisciplinary learning where you will become researchers, experimenters and designers – not to mention great thinkers!

As we commemorate VE Day 75, you might  want to have a look at some of the additional activities that are available for you to explore what VE Day is all about.

I know that many of you at the moment are really feeling the strain of not being able to see your friends or come to school.  In these challenging times, please remember that your health and wellbeing, and that of your family members, is what must come first and foremost.  If you’re needing a day just to snuggle up with your grown-up or quietly doodle on your own, then do just that.  The learning activities that are in your classroom are there to support you IF you need them. Please do not worry about not completing all of them.  You need to do what is right for you, when it is right for you.

I, and all the other staff at ELPS, are here to help you in whatever way we can. If you need to ask a question, if you need help with your learning, or if you just need to talk to someone outside your household, then please do get in touch.

Wishing you all a safe and happy week.

Week Commencing 27th April 2020

Welcome back to week 2 of Term 4.  I can’t believe how fast the time is flying!

This week sees us begin our new interdisciplinary learning about toys.  Thank you so much to everyone for sending me your ideas so we could collaborate on the planning and, as coincidence would have it, that has set us off to a good start with this week’s Learning Hero! I wonder what other collaborative things you’ll get up to this week.

In response to many, I have uploaded all the suggested activities for this week into a dated folder.  For those who would rather have the information daily, I will re-post these lessons each morning.  Please find our suggested timetable for the week ahead attached but do remember that this is there to support and not restrain you.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and hoping that the sun continues to shine.
