P1M & P1W – Digital Learning

Good evening,

We hope you are enjoying your weekend despite the craziness that is going on around us. Our time in the classroom may be over, for now, however that doesn’t mean our learning will stop. Tomorrow brings a new way of learning ….. learning at home! To help with this we will be posting a copy of our weekly timetable on our Class Team pages tomorrow. This way you will be able to see what is coming up over the course of the week.

Each morning Miss Wilson and 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 and checked by an adult at home rather than being submitted.

Remember, we will be available to help, if needed, so please use the chat facility on our Team page. You may also email us if you would prefer. We will be online from 9.00am until 3:15pm.

Every day, we would like all of you to ‘check-in’ with us by posting a reply to the ‘register’ which will be posted on our Class Team page each morning. We will say ‘Good Morning P1M/W’ and you can let us know you have read it at some point throughout the day by replying with a ‘hi’ or hello’.

Please remember, there will be teething problems until we settle into this new way of learning. However, if we all work together, we are confident it will all fall into place very soon. We are hoping that someone at home can send us photos, or videos, of you and your work, so we can see what you are getting up to.

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

Please continue to practice our sounds and the sight words on your child’s word wall – all word walls will be saved to the class materials folder in the files section of your child’s class team. Tasks will be set each week relating to our new sounds/words however practicing all sounds and words would also be beneficial.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson

Glow & Microsoft Teams

Good morning,

Can we ask, if you haven’t already done so, to help your child log on to their Glow account.  Log in details were issued to all children last week – please let us know if you need these to be reissued. Once you can access  Glow, please click on the Microsoft Teams app on the Bishopton apps list and post a brief message on your child’s class Team.  This will allow us to see who can get access.

If you have any problems with this, please speak to us as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson

P1M & P1W Week Beginning 16/03

Good afternoon,

We hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Homework for this week:

Reading – your child has been issued with a new reading book. Please practice this with your child and encourage them to sound out words (if applicable) and use the picture clues to help explain what is happening in the story.

Library Books – Please continue to enjoy the book  with your child and use the ‘three sharings’ to discuss the book.  All library books should be returned to school by next Wednesday 18th to allow us to return them.

Sounds – no new sound cards have been added since this week was a revision week. Please continue to practice previously issued sounds.

Word walls – word walls have been checked and put back into book bags. Please focus on trying to read the highlighted words in pink only. Children need to learn to read these words by sight (rather than sounding out) and understand the meaning by putting into an appropriate context in an oral sentence. We will tick the word when your child can read the word immediately and highlight these words in green when your child shows confidence in using the words correctly in an oral sentence to show meaning.

Maths – Please choose one activity to do with your child and date beside this when complete.

Health & Wellbeing – please practice the home target set for March.  More information on this task can be found here.

Reading Passports – we are enjoying reading all the entries to your reading passports. Please continue to complete for any books read at home.

Reminders:

  • P.E. will be on Monday & Tuesday of this week. Earrings must be taped and long hair tied back.
  • Please ensure children bring a water bottle to school every day – we do not keep spare cups in class.
  • Please check that your child can log in to their Glow account. from home – more details here.
  • We are once again looking for spare loose parts to help with our learning – some ideas are in the following link – loose parts. As previously mentioned loose parts containing pulses, egg cartons and milk crates should not be sent in due to allergies within primary one. Please do not buy any of these items, it is purely if you have them going spare or are able to collect them from friends or family.
  • We also welcome junk for our creative area – small boxes, tubs, lids, plastic containers, old wallpaper/ material off-cuts, and anything else you think we could use to make things.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
