Remote Learning

Happy New Year and I hope that you are all safe and well.
Again we have entered a period of “Remote Learning”.  As a school we are working and adapting our practice and we will be delivering remote learning in the following way.

All classes will have core material (essentials), independent work (work that can be completed without anyone else parent or sibling) and good to try (extras if your children need to have something else to do).

Beginning on a Monday 11th staff will publish a weekly grid of learning including these three types of learning experiences.  This should help parents see how it will work in and around the family week.  Teachers will be online to provide feedback to the children and support them during the school day unless they are in the school hub supporting our Key Worker and Vulnerable Children.  We are aware that children will be accessing at different times of the day to suit family life which may be outwith the school hours and therefore they may need to wait at least until the following day before receiving feedback.

Teams will be used by children to upload any work that they want the teacher to see and feedback on.  We have tried to tackle the problems and issues parents raised via the feedback forms completed at the end of the last lockdown and from the homework feedback.

Further “How to Guides” will be posted on the blog with step by step instructions as will further advice and guidance can also be found on the Blog.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us via the usual methods of telephoning the school on 01563522938 or via email.

Panto time!

This week pupils had a very different experience from our usual annual school visit  to see the Panto.  This year Panto came to us! Everyone enjoyed watching an online panto with their own class on the large screen via the Promethean boards in their classrooms.  A special shout out to Friends of Loanhead who helped bring this to us by making a donation to cover the cost of this happening.  Thank you to you all from everyone at Loanhead Primary School.

Thank you…

Today we received a donation from our local Morrison’s Community Champion.  As well as donating snacks for us to use in school for children who don’t have a little snack at breaktime, the donation will also be used to help families in our Loanhead community over the coming weeks.    A heartfelt thank you for this act of kindness.
