As you may have heard, all schools will be closing after this Friday and online learning will be utilised to help children continue learning. This news is likely to be a source of uncertainty for many, however I would like to assure all of you that I will be doing whatever I can in order to make this period a success. I will personally be prioritising making the online learning experience personal for Primary 3, and I will try and implement little touches to Google Classrooms that reminds P3 children of their classroom. If technology allows it, this will include morning greeting videos that run down the school day and a guitar and singing video a week. I consider these little touches to be of importance as I want everyone in Primary 3 to feel reassured that their teacher is still there for them and that we are still working together as a class socially.
For those of you who had children in school yesterday, you should have received a digital learning bookmark which contains usernames and passwords for Sumdog, Education City and Google Classrooms. If your child has not been in school and is unlikely to be before Friday, I can provide these by email.
On Friday, I will be handing out packs for a week of home learning. This will include general Primary 3 tasks for next week while teachers set up for digital learning for the rest of the school year. This will also include one of your children’s jotters for writing in at home.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks a lot,
