Welcome back P7F

Welcome back to your final term at Menstrie Primary School albeit virtually due to the current circumstances. We will be trying lots of exciting things this term so please keep checking your Google Classroom streams. I have noticed that some learners are not engaging with Google Classroom as much as they could be which may be for a variety of reasons. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with to make this easier for you because this is where most of our communication will take place as well as where most of your work will be set.

Keep safe and stay at home.

Google Classroom and Tasks

ALL tasks for P7F have been set on Google Classroom. Please can you make sure that your young learners can log in to  Google Classroom and can access these tasks before we finish up for school holidays this week. In order for me to know that you can login can you please post a message saying “Hello” so that I know that can get access. If access is a problem then please check out Mr Scotland’s instructions about all the different platforms you can access Google Classroom from. I can also reset passwords and inform you of your usernames for the various sites we would like you to access.

There are a whole host of activities including Maths Lessons and explanation videos, Comprehension activities, Art lessons and a large number of Health Week activities.

Additionally, there are at least 15 books available on Bug Club for children to read and answer comprehension questions. Sumdog has a competition on at the moment and I have asked the class to complete an initial assessment as well. Both of these sites have NOT been used extensively by a large percentage of pupils. Please be aware I can monitor when they have accessed these sites and for how long.

Hope this adds clarity to the learning opportunities we have created for Primary 7F and they take on the challenge of completing most of the tasks set.

I am aware that during this challenging time for a lot of families  it is important to make sure that the balance of school work and enjoying each other as a family is healthily maintained.

Keep Safe.
