For further information on the programme, and to fill out the parental agreement form please see the links below. The devices will not be allocated for full use until the agreements are filled out. This is an online form.

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

Hooray for the holidays! Although it does feel very different. We all hope that you are staying safe and healthy. There will be no official classwork set on Google Classrooms, although there may still be the odd fun activity. We have, however, put together a whole school Spring learning grid (click the link below) with some ideas to keep your creative juices flowing and for some fun family time if you run out of ideas.
