P1C – Digital Learning Week Beginning 23.03.20

Good afternoon!

Tomorrow we begin a new journey together… learning at home! To help with this I will be posting a copy of our weekly timetable on our Class Team page. This way you will be able to see what is coming up over the course of the week.

Each morning I will set daily assignments for you to complete. It is entirely up to you when these are completed throughout the day and in what order. Some of the tasks will be active whereas others will be written. The completed written tasks can be returned to us by attaching them to the original assignment. Please click here for details on how to complete this. Also, if you were in school last week, a blue jotter was sent home. Tasks may also be completed in this.  Remember, I will be available to help, if needed, so please use the chat facility on our Team page. You may also email me if you would prefer. I will be online from 9.00am.

Every day, I would like all of you to ‘check-in’ with me by posting a reply to the ‘register’ which will be posted on our Class Team page each morning. I will say ‘Good Morning P1C’ and you can let me know you have read it at some point throughout the day by replying with a ‘hi’ or hello’.

I am hoping that someone at home can send me photos, or videos, of you and your work, so I can see what you are getting up to.

Above all, please don’t worry about this next step in your child’s learning. I am here to help in any way that we can.

Please continue to revise our sounds and the sight words on your child’s word walls. On Friday, your child was given an extra word wall for when they have completed their current one. If your child was off I will email you a copy over the next few days. Tasks will be set each week relating to our new sounds/words however revision of all sounds and words would also be beneficial.

As always, any questions please ask.

Primary 1C

Good morning,

Primary 1C had a brilliant day yesterday. We had a movie morning with P1-P3, a special golden time, our P7 buddies then surprised us and we got to sign their shirts! We then finished with Read and Munch.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say I’ve had a great time teaching P1C! What an amazing first year in school they’ve had and they’ve been an absolute joy to teach. They all worked incredibly hard and I am so proud to have watched them grow in confidence. I have enjoyed getting to know them and thank them for their happy smiles and making me laugh everyday. 

I will be online from 9am every weekday posting tasks and activities for your child. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you all for your continued support and kind words yesterday. Stay safe and I hope to see you all soon.

P1C – Glow and Microsoft Teams

Good afternoon,

If you haven’t already done so, please help the children to log on to Glow and post a message (This is the Scottish Schools National Intranet, you can find it by searching Glow in Google.)  This will allow me to check that everyone can access Glow at home. Further details can be found here.  The children have been shown how to access Microsoft Teams, which is the app shown first on the Bishopton Apps List.

If you have any questions about this or require another copy of your child’s user name or password just let me know.

Many thanks,

Miss Cuthill
