Continuing learning in light of Coronavirus
You will be well aware of the rapidly changing situation across the country due to the coronavirus. As you know schools, in line with everyone else, are following national guidance which in itself is necessarily changing on a daily basis. More information is available from the NHS at www.nhsinform.scot.
At the moment all schools and Early Learning and Childcare Centres remain open. However, over the next few days and weeks, it is possible that an increased number of pupils and staff will catch the virus and have to stay at home. This will mean whole families having to stay at home for long periods of time, unable to come to school or go to work.
To help with our planning to continue to offer opportunities for learning we would be grateful if you could answer the following questions via the following link:
- Do you or your child’s other responsible parent/carer work in one of the following sectors:
- NHS/Social Care
- Other emergency service
- Other critical service, please specify
- Are you currently, or will you likely be in the coming days, working from home (subject to the agreement of your employer)?
- Does your household have access to the internet and WiFi?
I know this is a worrying time for everyone and I want to assure you that we are working hard to plan for different situations and continue to provide learning and teaching for our children and young people. We will continue to communicate with you through our usual channels on the arrangements for your child. Please continue to follow the updates provided through the school and Council social media sites.
For those of you who may find yourself at home over the next few days, here are some super activities to keep your brain active and your skills fresh! All of these websites are free to use and will help reinforce previously taught concepts. Please click on the picture below.
So what challenge will you take on today? Tweet us at @KirkhillPS #kpshomelearning
We found that the white bread went mouldy first, followed by the 50/50. We are still waiting for the brown bread to mould.
This is what most of the class had predicted would happen. As predicted the dirty hand went mouldy first then the clean hand and the control.
Challenge- To build the tallest freestanding tower in 25 minutes using 20 stick of spaghetti, 1 metre of tape and 1 metre of string.
Problem-The tower has to hold a marshmallow at the top.
We used teamwork, communication, co-operation and various problem solving strategies to create the most successful tower.
The winning tower was…….41 cm tall!
We have had the best VE day party today. We took part in a quiz to demonstrate our learning of our WWII topic.
Look out for the winners!
We also bid farewell to Miss Barrett, who is going off on maternity leave to have her baby. We wish you all the best in the coming weeks and we are looking forward to baby cuddles.
We will miss you!
Primary 7 were very fortunate to be visited by a local author called SF Mazhar. She is the author of the Power of Four series and The Elementals.
She gave us an insight on how she was inspired through her Fan Fiction writing online.
Primary 7 were lucky to have a writing workshop with her. We learnt how to structure a ‘Plot Arch’ and ‘Emphasis’ in our writing.
‘We look forward to using this in our writing!’ Ailis.
