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.
