Home Learning Packs

Almost all families requested a family learning pack.  These are being delivered on Thursday 30th April and Friday 1st May.  Practical resources to support learning at home are in your packs.  Card folders include work for individual children and the heavy duty clear folder is the pack with family activities for Awareness Days, our guide to learning at home.

Family Learning – Awareness Days

These resouces are in addition to the core work that teachers are allocating online.  They will be of use to you on

  •  the actual awareness day
  •  days where there is no work allocated on Google classroom because your teacher is working in the Barrhead Hub.

They can also be used on Inservice Days or at any time you like. Follow your child’s interests.

Please make sure you read the health and safety guidance in your pack about the compost/ seeds for planting and the bird seed. These are to be used to support activities in the Family Learning Awareness Day Pack,
