P5 Home Learning – Day 1 – Done!

Well done on completing your first day of home learning Primary 5! We know it was frustrating at times when the assignments and resources were not cooperating, hopefully things will be better tomorrow. A big thank you to your grown-ups too for supporting you to get through the day. This is not a normal situation for any of us so let’s all be kind to each other to make it easier to get through.
I am going to close the Daily Tasks Post from today so you will not be able to comment on any of Monday’s posts anymore. This will help keep our feed neat and tidy.
Here are a few things to remember for tomorrow:
  • Check in on the register post for that day first thing so your teacher knows you are here
  • Use the @ symbol to tag your teacher if you want to ask them a question
  • Only Reply to the Daily Tasks post to ask questions about the work, do not start a new conversation
  • No GIFs in the General Feed, try to keep the emojis to a minimum and full words please (no text speak!)
  • While the Chill Out Zone is for you to keep in touch with your friends, please do not spend your whole day in there chatting, imagine what your teacher would be saying to you if you were chatting away that much in class. Smiley
If there are any issues with assignments or resources not opening, could you please check to see if someone has mentioned it already and if the teacher has replied to them? This will save you asking the same question and getting the same answer.
If assignments or resources are not opening up, give it a little while and come back later. Use the time to do some personal reading or use Spelling City or Sumdog. Assignments are scheduled to go online between 8.30 and 9am but as we saw today, the system slowed things down. If they are not there, check back later. Your teachers are available to answer questions between 9-3.15 just like a regular school day.
Thank you all for your hard work today, especially when Teams was being annoying!
See you tomorrow, P5 Teachers
