P7 Home Learning 30/03/2020

P7 Home Learning

Upon reflection and discussion with P7 last week, we have decided to change things in order for the children to have more choice and independence in their learning.

Every week you should complete the following listed below. I will still be uploading daily tasks on google classroom . Please do as much as you can and find a balance in your family focusing  as well on your health and wellbeing, connecting with our families, taking time to recap and revise our skills and to develop our own passions and interests.

Every week you should complete and try to share with me :

  • Spelling – practise your spellings any way you want.
  • Writing – choose something from the LITERACY GRID e.g. practise handwriting, keep a diary and write a story.
  • Reading – AR, listen to our class novel, read for pleasure, read to a sibling
  • Maths – choose something from the MATHS GRID e.g. sumdog, hit the button, topmarks, practice your times tables.
  • PE – Joe Wicks morning workouts, Miss Gordon’s PE classroom, Just Dance, cosmic yoga, walk the dog, play on your trampoline, go for a cycle.
  • Other – Mrs Mailer’s music classroom, practise German using duolingo, art, ICT.

Other creative ideas might be
read, do some free writing, art, play with Lego, do a jigsaw, play a board game, do some cooking, gardening, walk your dog, do your chores, practise animation, drawing, play on your trampoline, go for a cycle ride, do some cosmic yoga, meditate, teach someone else a skill, help make dinner, create a den in your lounge, learn a new language, research something you want to learn about, create a dance, learn a new song.

I have attached a slide show of the exceptional work that was produced in P7 in Week 1. I’m not sure if this link will work!

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Primary 7 Home Learning 23rd March 2020

Good morning P7,

I have attached the timetable for the week below. Please remember that this is just a guide and tasks do not have to be done at the exact times on the timetable (other than Joe Wickes 9am workout Monday-Friday!) This is just to help you keep your week structured.

I will upload information for the day on Google Classroom so that you know what each task requires.

Please remember to send me pictures of what you are up to so that I can upload them to our P7 Home Learning slides.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Week 6

Emergency Provision for Keyworkers Update

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?

East Linton Learning Heroes So Far…

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)

Reflective Trios!

Today our second level pupils –  P5,6 & 7s – worked together in trios to reflect on their learning this term and to plan for their next steps. We encouraged our pupils to see the progression in the learning  in their assessment jotters – as individuals and across the three classes. Well done everyone!
