Lockerbie Lockdown Day 1

Good morning,

The day of our P7 residential has finally arrived and instead of hauling your suitcases into the car park and teary goodbyes to your families, we are going to enjoy a week of all things Lockerbie with our families and friends virtually.

Remember, thisย week I will publish everything to do with Lockerbie Lockdown on the Seesaw class blog. If you do not want me to share a particular photo, video or piece of work on the blog then please just let me know when you post it on Seesaw. I thought it would be nice for your classmates to see what you’re doing during Lockerbie Lockdown as they would be watching you take part in activities if we were there.

Please note there are 5 activities assigned altogether each day. These can take place indoors or outdoors weather permitting. There are 3 activities, a daily challenge plus a team building activity.

I have attached both pages here and on Seesaw.

Good luck to the Sutherland house pupils for your induction morning if surname is Mc and induction afternoon if surname is S at Mearns Castle High School today.

Let’s have the best week P7a!

Lockerbie Lockdown Day 1

Have fun!

After a busy few days of virtual transitions at high school, you will be given the opportunity to visit the high school next week for an induction morning in your high school house groups. I hope you enjoy the experience and it helps you feel a little ease, for August.

In the mean time, I am super excited to announce Kirkhill’s alternative residential at Lockerbie Lockdown for Monday 15th – Friday 19th June. Primary 7a pupils should check here and their Seesaw for details.

I know the weather is looking a bit temperamental for the weekend and next week so feel free to do these activities at some point next week or even during the summer holidays. Please donโ€™t feel you need to complete them on the day they are assigned as I know parents are working and might be difficult for them to supervise.

I have attached a wee Lockerbie Lockdown Teaser to get you in the mood over the weekend. So this weekend instead of packing your suitcases for our residential trip, you can enjoy a weekend taster of all things Lockerbie with your family and friends virtually.

This weekend and next week I will publish everything to do with Lockerbie Lockdown on the Seesaw class blog. If you do not want me to share a particular photo, video or piece of work on the blog then please just let me know when you post it on Seesaw. I thought it would be nice for your classmates to see what you’re doing during Lockerbie Lockdown as they would be watching you take part in activities if we were there.

Good morning everyone,

Welcome to your virtual transition day 3!

Today you would have been going to the high school to take part in your second full day induction.

Attached are a range of activities to help you with the transition to high school. During your induction days, you would usually spend time getting to know other pupils across the cluster primary schools and work together in your new classes, so some activities will require you to work virtually with friends. We look forward to seeing your progress on Seesaw.

Some of the activities attached below can be found on the P7 Transitions area of the Mearns Castle Website. You can access this by going to their website, finding the โ€œPupilsโ€ drop down menu and clicking on the top option โ€œP7 Transitions 2020โ€ or by typing the following into your web browser:

https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/MearnsCastle/p7-transitions-2020/

Enjoy working through your virtual transition day, as always you do not need to do everything, just do what you can. It looks like a lot but some of the activities only take a few minutes. It is based on you having a 6 period day today. You can take your time and work through these activities in your spare time or over the summer holidays, so please don’t feel you need to complete it all today. This will give you something to look forward to when you go for your morning transition day next week.

Here is your daily plan for today:
