Primary 1/2 Activities

Week beginning Monday 1st June 2020

Good Morning everyone in P1/2. I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend enjoying the sunshine. It is looking as though we will not be back in school until after the summer holidays, but I am loving our chats on Teams to make up for not seeing you in class. I am also hoping to share some of the amazing photos you have sent me on Twitter this week to show everyone how busy you have all been.

Announcements

Chats – Our chats this week are on Monday 11-11.30am for story time. Then on Wednesday 12-12.30pm and Friday 12.30-1pm. I am sorry for being late last Friday as my laptop froze and took a long time to come back online, but I’m sure you all made the most of the sunny day instead!

Login and Passwords – I am aware you have a few login and passwords now so I will save all your log in details into your folder in Teams – File – Children’s Work. Everyone has now been emailed with this info.

Photo Challenge – I would still love to receive a few more photos for our video with Mrs Ditty’s class. If you haven’t done this yet you can still send it to me at gw09brownellen3@glow.sch.uk I would really appreciate it.

Return to school – There have been announcements from the Government that school will be back in August. At the moment Mr Conaghan and the staff team are working on classes and the practical needs for our return. As soon as we have this information we will pass this on to you.

Week beginning Monday 18th May 2020

Good morning boys and girls. Welcome to another week of home learning. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before we can get back to school and I can see you all. I am missing you all so much! I hope you all enjoy your tasks this week, there are a few I am looking forward to!!!

Announcements

Chats – Our next Teams chats will be on Monday at 12pm and Wednesday at 1pm and these will be another video/audio chat were children can speak to one another. For Monday try to think of a joke to share and on Wednesday I will tell a story as I have missed our story times.

Using IDL – This week for numeracy we are going to use IDL for our starter activity. For logging into IDL…

Username: firstname and initial of surname@ml41ln   – joeb@ml41ln

Password: firstname and initial of surname                 – joeb

There is an assessment at the start that then allows the programme to plan questions suitable for your child’s knowledge. The assessment is lengthy so will take a few days but it saves automatically.

Login and Passwords – I am aware you have a few login and passwords now so I will save all your log in details into your folder in Teams – File – Children’s Work and I will start to email them to you so you have them to hand.

Photo Challenge

Mrs Ditty and I are hoping to create a video this week with pictures of all the children. Please get involved so that children can see pictures of their friends. Children can draw a picture of something from their time at home or a picture that will bring a smile to others. If you could take a photo of them holding the picture and send it to me at gw09brownellen3@glow.sch.uk I would really appreciate it.

Remember you can still collect points using the St. Gerard’s Challenge. We will add all the points at the end of the month to see who our class winner is!

May Task

I hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend on Friday and Monday!

Have fun and take care! – Miss Brown xx

Buenos Dias chicos y chicas! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Welcome to another week of learning.

I have loved chatting with you on Teams this week, it really has been wonderful. Having looked at how many people joined us last week I have set this weeks times as Monday 1-2pm and Wednesday 11-12 pm. If you haven’t joined in yet I hope you can join us for even a few minutes, it doesn’t have to be the full hour. Sorry no chat on Friday due to the bank holiday!

This week we will be using Education City for some of our online learning. I understand that information has been posted to you all but I will include the details here just in case.

https://go.educationcity.com/

Log in using your username and password. Most Usernames are FirstnameSurname (with capital letters and no spaces) and our class password is drum. I will save all details in Team Files.

It is also The Month of Mary and Father McGoldrick as asked for us to help him so that is Monday’s other task. I would ask as an extra that all children learn The Hail Mary during this month, if they don’t already know it.

Have a super week P1/2!

There are two ebooks that might be good to read to your children over the holiday weekend about the current situation with Covid 19.

Week beginning Monday 27th April 2020

Hello boys and girls. It has been another glorious week! I hope you have been doing lots of fun learning and activities outside in the lovely sunshine. Fingers crossed we get more this week.

You are all now part of our class Group Chat on Teams using your Glow email. I know some parents are using this for working from home and a few children have already said “Hello” using it. It is a word chat not a video chat so your child will need help to type so that they can join in. If you need more help below is the link to a guide on how to access it. Sorry can’t get the hyperlink to work so you will have to copy and paste the link.

https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/StGerardsBlog/2020/04/26/home-learning-update-using-teams/

The aim is to have more real time communication with myself and with each other. I will be available this week on: Monday from 1 – 2pm

Wednesday from 10 – 11am

Friday from 2 – 3pm

Let me know if these times are suitable for everyone so children can access at least once each week with adult help. I am looking forward to hearing from you all. The chat can be used for children to text chat to one another too!

I will also be putting each week’s resources in the Files section for easier access.

I have set up everyone on Teach your monster to read. It is a great resource and can be used anytime by you all as well as for set learning tasks.

How to access Teach your monster to read:

Browser: Children must use http://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/u/5603683

App: When logging in, set (star code) to 5603683

Usernames are children’s first name (with no spaces for double names).

Here are the new learning tasks. I hope you have another super week! I can’t wait to speak to you all on Teams : )
