Good Morning everyone. I hope that you are settling into a routine and adjusting to this new way of life! If you haven’t logged onto glow yet please do and join in with your class on Teams and say ‘Hi’ Parents please can you email into school with your child’s name so that we can continue to improve our communication systems – unfortunately the text messaging only allows 121 characters – that’s why they are short!
We will be trying to contact you all over the coming weeks so if you have recently changed your phone number – please let the school know by emailing us at Holmston.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we can do anything to further support you or if you have any ideas – please let us know. Remember to follow us on twitter too.
Teachers are setting home learning tasks on GLOW teams and there is work on the website. These are proposed tasks only and we encourage parents to use their judgement. Teachers follow the Curriculum for Excellence and South Ayrshire Curriculum Frameworks so the tasks set will be appropriate for the age of your child and will guide you around the concepts covered. Every child is different and works in a different way. Teachers constantly change and adapt the task to suit the needs of the child. A daily routine might look like this but this is only a suggestion:
|Before 9.00am||Wake Up||Get Up, have breakfast, brush your teeth, make your bed|
|9.00am – 10.00am||Exercise||Join Joe Wicks @ 9am, Cosmic Yoga, go outside and play
