On this page you will find suggested materials which will support the pupils with home schooling during this period of school closure. In P5, we will update our suggested plan for the week ahead each Monday morning. We will provide links to online materials and provide electronic copies of work which can be completed at home, as well as a suggested daily break down of which tasks to complete. There are a couple of websites which we will be using and we will endeavour to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate between our Class Page and these websites.
The pupils previously were sent home with a blank workbook and log in details for a number of websites we plan to use in P5. If you need these log in details sent to you again, please email us using one of the email addresses at the end of this message. These email addresses can also be used to contact us regarding any school work matters should you need to do so. We will endeavour to reply to you as quick as we can and plan to be as helpful and accessible as possible in the weeks and months ahead.
It is understandable that you may be concerned about your child’s academic development at this time. Please know that while we are here to support you through the school closure, everybody is going through the same experience and schools will work tirelessly to help your children academically when this is all over.
Right now it is important to look after our children’s physical and mental wellbeing. In the weeks ahead it will be perfectly normal to observe difficult behaviours in the children caused by anxiety, anger, frustration and boredom. What our children need now is to feel loved, comforted and safe. The suggested work schedule is there for you as and when you need it, but you will know when and if you need to deviate from it in the best interests of your child’s wellbeing, and we completely support you in doing so.
In years to come, how your children felt during this time will stay with them long after the memory of the work they completed has gone.
Wishing you all health and wellbeing,
Kerri Curran Maria Harrison Steven Robertson
