Week 2 of Home Learning

Some updates for P4.

Remember we will sometimes be adding new ideas to the pages at the top.

New spelling words have been added to our spelling page.

A new page has been added that gives some help using Glow blogs.

Check out Mrs Williams’ post on Bug Club comments – remember the teachers can see any answers you type in when answering a question.

 

It would be nice to see some more pupils logging on to their blogs so please take the time to try it if you have a way of getting online. Blogs will be used in stages p5-7 to record learning so it would be a valuable experience.

 

Hoping everyone is well.

Bug Club Teacher Comments

Bug Club Teacher Comments

 

Good afternoon everyone,

Almost the weekend! 😉

Many of you have been logging onto your Bug Club accounts and enjoying some of the books allocated.

Your teacher is logging on regularly and checking how you are getting on.

When you type and answer we are able to see what you have written and we will give you feedback in that box.

You will find our comments when you go into your ‘Library’. At the top right hand corner of the book read you will see a little green envelope symbol. Click on that and you can read it.

We are aware that if you type anything in that box that you can move onto the next page. Please do try to show us your understanding of the question through your fab answers!;-)

Happy reading!

Posting photos on a blog

It has been great to see many learners try to post pictures of their work on their blog. At this point a reminder of how to edit photos so they appear the correct way up may be useful. Click on the photos below for a caption explaining what to do.

Once you have edited photos you can then insert the photos or create a gallery of several photos. Gallery option is great if you have a lot of photos.

Hope you find this helpful.

Friendly reminder

Hi everyone

Hopefully you have all survived your first few days of learning at home and it has been great seeing some of you posting about your experiences.

We would like to reassure you that there is no minimum requirement for P4 home learning. The pages above give ideas only and we may add ideas over time as we discover new activities.

For example, some pupils have been loving the maths challenges suggested.  Others have decided to research a country.  Some have been out in the garden helping to build fences.  When the good weather returns (have hope! 😀) and you can get outside, check the outdoor learning page for a suggested activity. Wet weather and parents need a rest?  Choose something from the pack we sent home or look on the fun page.

Bug Club and Active maths are always there too but this does not need to be completed daily.  It  would be great if you could try to log on to your glow account which can be a valuable experience all on its own.

Some of our staff are in the same position – looking after their own children while working from home.  It can be challenging.

Remember to take time to relax and enjoy your home learning.

Hoping you’re all safe and well.

P4 Home Learning Info Updated with Glow Blogs help

We know that during the school closures you may be concerned about your child’s learning and progression.

P4 staff have made up a pack that will be sent home with learners on Friday. These packs contain maths and literacy tasks. We do not expect children to complete all tasks and it can be used as required.

Learners have been issued a jotter that can be used to record any learning experiences. Inside this jotter there is a username and password that allow learners to access their Glow blog.  All pupils have a blog set up which can also be used for recording and sharing learning.  Pupils in class this week were shown how to use it.  As we had limited time with this we understand learners are still becoming familiar with this method of recording.

Each class also has its own blog which children can contribute to and can be used for sharing news and ideas.

Our original P4 blog, which can be accessed without a log in from the school’s home page, will be our main source for activities and communication. Below the picture of Titanic you will see several headings. Click on these headings to see resources and activities. Each week we will add a list of spelling words that could be a focus for that week.

Bug Club and Active Maths accounts will continue to be updated with resources and books.

We are aware that these are strange and uncertain times and that it may be challenging to undertake learning at home.  We have provided activities and ideas to assist families and hope you find them useful.

Thank you.
