BPS P6_7 Home Learning 11- 12 February

After our half term holiday we have a two day week! We are going to use these days to explore 4 different topics.

Click on the images to get more information on each topic.

We will be trying to evaluate our own learning. In each topic there are one two learning tasks for each one you need to record the amount of time you spend on the task, your effort and the quality of your work. You could set it out in a table like this. Add this to your e-Portfolio.

In addition you should continue to do 20 minutes Sumdog and a Read Theory Quiz every day.

We will have 2 short meetings on Thursday at 11:30am and Friday at 11:30am to discus the topics further.

Before the first meeting make sure to look over the 4 topics. Bring any questions along.

Hi Biggies,

It was great seeing so many of you in the Meetings last week. I hope we can keep this up and solve the technical problems for everyone!

This week we will have meetings on Monday at 11am, Wednesday at 2pm and Thursday or Friday TBA

I’ll be in school Tuesday and Friday so might not respond straightway in Teams.

I’ve reorganised the learning for this week. The table above will lead to different posts for different groups. I’ve also explained  what to do on each day. I’ll add more to some of the posts during the week so check every day.

 

Lockdown Learning W/B 11-01-2021

Jump down to tasks

Hi Biggies,

This is not the way I would want to start the term but I know you will do your best. We are going to start slowly making sure everyone can use the technology from home.

We will use this blog as the main way of listing the learning you will need to do. We will use Teams to hand in work and our e-Portfolios to think about and record important steps in learning.

You will be able to arrange to pick up your iPad if you need a device for school work. You all have been using Teams on your iPads in school, so should be able to use that to hand in work and come to meetings. If you have trouble with your own devices make sure you get your iPad.

We should be in a much better place for home learning this time. We have practiced adding work to Assignments in Teams, and you all have excellent ICT skills.

The most important thing you can do this week is to make a plan. You are going to need a couple of hours for learning every day, as well as time for any Teams meetings. You need to think where and when you are going to do this. Can you find a quiet space in your home? Can you make sure you have everything you need? It may help to make a schedule.

Please try to do all of the activities this week. It is not a full week’s work but it will let us troubleshoot any problems. Handing things in in Teams Assignments will be a good test of the technology. If you have problems we can find ways to work around things. Get in touch if you have any problems. You can chat in teams. Email me at gw09johnstonjohn4@glowmail.org.uk or your parent or carer can phone the school and I will phone them back.

teams iconWe will try 3 teams meetings: Monday 2pm, Wednesday 2pm and Friday 11 am. These will be short this week, just to explain things and to check everyone can get connected and that the technology is working.

If you need more work you can head over to the NLC digital classroom. Your parents or carers will have the code and details to let you join that team. You can send me work in Teams if you want me to see what you have done.

I Come From

We have been reading a couple of poems called I come from by Robert Seattar and Dean Atta. We found them on the Breadalbane Academy P7 Poetry Blog where that class has written some poems too.

We wrote our own, they are pretty great:
