Good Morning Everyone.
Please remember when the weather is nice to take family learning outdoors if you can!
Social Distancing can be tricky for children to understand, here is a short animated story to hopefully help! I have included two different versions of the same story – one with someone telling the story and one children can read on their own!
While We can’t Hug – music and words
While We Can’t Hug – oral story
Quick update – especially for Mums, Dads and other Carers at home!
Last week we obviously heard, that as long as it is safe to do so, schools will begin moving into the renewal phase and plans will now gather momentum with regards how and when our pupils will return to school. East Ayrshire are very much keeping health, safety and wellbeing at the heart of this planning process, and I am sure like me, you will appreciate that.
I also know, especially with my Mum hat on, we all want to know what is happening in August … pattern of attendance, groupings, what will it look like, childcare arrangements when kids aren’t at school etc. I genuinely cannot answer these questions at this time and I thank you in advance for your patience in respect of this. As soon as I can I will update you!
ECC places have not yet been confirmed. The Central Early Years team are undertaking work on this, again as soon as I know I will let you all know.
I hope to be able to share a class structure in the next fortnight or so. I am just awaiting final clarification on staffing.
Annual Pupil Reports have been written and will be issued in August. Transition reports for our pre school children will also be issued to parents in August.
Stay safe everyone! Mrs McCracken
