ELPS SIP 2021 Sep
Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !
Happy Monday P6,
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.
Week Beginning Monday 27th April
term 4 plan
Here is our plan for this term to keep our learning current, active and fun – look out for the learning grids coming for each one!!
Good morning everyone!
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.
Speak soon! :0)
Week Beginning Tuesday 21st April
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.

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!

Week Beginning Monday 23rd March
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’.

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?
