P7 Home Learning Overview

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a lovely holiday with plenty of relaxation and enjoyed time with your loved ones over the festive period.

Although we won’t be seeing your lovely, smiling faces as soon as we thought, we can keep in contact online as we’ll be starting our Primary 7 Home Learning programme tomorrow. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:

  • There will be two main posts every day:
  • We will have a Daily Task post where you will find an overview of the tasks for that day (these can be found in the assignments tab). Tasks that have direct teaching will be marked as such. Please like or comment on the Daily Task post before you begin any work. This will allow us to keep a register.
  • We will have a Pupil of the Day post where you can leave a compliment for your friend.
  • We will follow the structure of the school day as much as possible and there is a timetable below so you can see how the structure of our week will look. Our school break times in P7 are 10.30am – 10.45am, 12.45pm – 1.30pm, and 2pm – 2.15pm. Please make sure you take breaks during the day (whenever suits you and your family – everyone’s day looks different) – get outside and enjoy the fresh air, outdoor play, or just some personal chill time away from the screen.
  • We will have a Team meeting every Monday and Thursday at 10am (excluding Monday 11th January). If you can, please join the meeting to check in and share your news. It will be so nice to hear everyone’s voices and hear what you have been up to. We will also try to play some games. If you can’t join us, please don’t worry.
  • Assignments– Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly. If you have any corrections or you would like to make improvements to your work, you can always make changes then upload again. Please ensure you have attached work before clicking upload. We will set the closing date for assignments for one month and you can still hand them in after this date.  In order to keep your assignments space tidy and avoid a build-up of tasks, we will mark work as ‘completed’ after one week. If you still wish to complete this task and hand it in, you will find it in the completed section of the assignments tab.
  • Non-assignment work– There will be other tasks available to you that will not be listed as an assignment – for example, we will offer Daily Doodle prompts, as well as a selection of puzzles, STEM and other practical activities. If you wish to share your achievements with these, reply to the Daily Task post with a photo of your work by hitting the paperclip icon.
  • Please keep the General Channel tidy and only reply to the posts. Please only chat with your friends and use emojis and GIFs in the Chill-Out Zone. Please keep to the digital etiquette rules we have previously discussed in class. Do not share your gamer username on Teams.
  • We know that every home has different arrangements about when and how you do work, so please do not worry if you can’t get everything or anything done. You can only do what you can and please email us if you have any questions or worries. We are here to support you and are very proud of you.

We are looking forward to working with you all on Teams and will be available to answer your questions and provide support throughout the school day. We know you will all try your best.
