Activities that require SeeSaw will be scheduled on the morning of their day on the timetable.๐Ÿ’ป

The hard work that parents and pupils have shown in 1 week of Home Learning has blown me away.ย  A huge pat on the back to everyone.

As always, more communication, information and messages will go through Seesaw.

*P1 HOME LEARNING*

To P1 parents,

HAPPY NEW YEAR. I cannot believe we are back here, not the new year we hoped for. I miss all the children, so fingers crossed remote learning is a short term thing.

I am just sending a quick message to let you know that activities and more information will be posted on Seesaw on Monday morning. I hope to do a wee video for the class to say hello and explain a bit about what learning may look like.

I will also message parents individually with sumdog passwords etc incase these are lost from last year.

I will be in school teaching for a few days a week as well so might not be instantly available so thanks for your support in advance.

I did remote learning with my 2 last time and it can be stressful but also a real bonding time. Some days will work well and others will be a right off and that is OK. Every household is different, how you approach this needs to work for your family. If you miss some activities and cannot catch up, that’s OK!

The work will be a lot interactive but you can do it on paper and take a photo within the assignment and send it to me. We used SewSaw last term to prepare for this and we will all be learning together.

Joe Wicks is back on Monday at 9am on his youtube channel. This is something the whole school tried to do last time and can be a great start to your day, especially if everyone gets involved.

As for a timetable, it is about what works for you. I can suggest but remember, remote learning is flexible.

Each day there will be literacy, numeracy activities as well as health and some Scottish topic work.

Enjoy your weekend of snowy fun x

Glow Troubleshooting

โ€ข I checked all pupil usernames and passwords last week and was able to log into Glow but if there are issues please email me at k.hinton@mgfl.net.

โ€ข CANNOT ACCESS GOOGLE CLASSROOM? – It works best on Chrome browser and you need to have a google account logged in. If there are 2 or more children in the house then you may need to make a new google account with glow email (ending in @mc.glow.scot) and have that logged in. I know this is annoying but should save time in the long run – different versions of Chrome require different things.

  • The google classroom app will not work, you need to use the google chrome browser and Glow.
  • Google classroom work can be done on paper/jotters and handed in by uploading a hwhoto of the work and sending it within the assignment (there is a small video I made about this in most Google Classrooms)
  • Midlothian Glow and Google Classroom help page is now up and running, if you have no device to access google classroom you can also request to loan a device from this link.ย https://sites.google.com/mc.glow.scot/distancelearning-parentcarer/

โ€ข Sumdog and Education city can be accessed online without Glow if you have issues.

โ€ข If you get locked out of Glow, it usually only lasts ten minutes before allowing you to retry.

I will try to update this with common troubleshooting issues the more that I come across. Thanks for your patience,

Mrs Hinton
