We hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. Times are challenging at the moment for all of us and we wanted to say how proud we are of you for adapting to online lessons again.
As we are in the middle of Primary 6 the expectations differ from last lockdown and new learning is taking place. Lessons have been pre-recorded to support your understanding, as it would be in class. We are noticing that some of these lessons are not being viewed online and work is not being completed correctly or handed in without any work. Could you please make sure that you are following all instructions, watching the pre-recorded lessons and if you have any questions you can ask us in our teams chat or through email. Your work should also be uploaded into your assignment area before handing in. If this is not working you can email your work to us. We understand that assignments may not always load first time and ask that you try again or ask us and we can send you another link.
Your Daily Task post will let you know what lessons you have to complete each day just as you would in school.
If you have any questions please let us know that is what we are here for!
With everything being a little different we thought it might be good to give you a reason to take a break. It helps you now and again to step away from the screen and to get out and about in your local area. With this in mind we have set up 16 cards across Bishopton and Dargavel for you to spot when you are out playing or going for a walk. If you find one don’t keep it to yourself; make sure and share where it is with everyone else. There are challenges/ stories/ poems and facts on them.
This is an optional activity and if you don’t want to do any of the suggestions on the card then that is ok. They are simply an excuse to get you out exploring everything our beautiful village has to offer. You may even learn a little Scots along the way.
We hope you had a wonderful holiday. We will be starting our online learning on Monday 11th January 2021. We are looking forward to hearing from you all. 😊
While we are trying to keep our days as close to a regular school day as possible, we understand that everyone has different circumstances. All we want is for you to try your best. If you need any help, let your teachers know.
Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:
Every day you should respond in the Morning postbefore starting any work. This will let us keep a register.
We will also have a Daily Task postwhere you will find the tasks for that day.
We will have a Pupil of the Day postwhere you can leave a compliment for your friend.
We will have a Team meetingevery Monday and Thursday at 09:30am
Assignments– Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly.
Daily Tasks– Every day you will have Literacy (spelling and at least one other task), Numeracy and Maths (mental and one main task), Health and Well-Being (Pupil of the Day, daily fitness or PATHS) or another curricular area. (topic, art, music)
We plan to post the tasks for each day the night before on Teams. This will hopefully help you plan how your day will go. In the daily post we will detail how the learning will be delivered. This may be via a recorded PowerPoint, a link to an online lesson, videos, games etc. Please do not worry if you cannot make these lessons, they will be recorded and posted afterwards.
A rough timetable is attached at the bottom of this post, you can adapt this to suit your own circumstances. If you, or your grown-ups, are finding it difficult to balance the online learning with life at home, take a break and come back to it when you can. All we ask is that you try your best. 😊
I can’t believe that we are stopping for the Christmas Holidays already. What an excellent start to the year we have had! It has been a tricky year for many people but we have still managed to have lots of fun and make fantastic memories!
