Find below a survey from West Lothian Council that we would encourage you to complete by Friday 29th January.
West Lothian Council would like to hear from parents/carers about their experiences of supporting their children to learn from home during this period of remote learning.
We appreciate all you are doing and your feedback will help us to continue to support our schools and families at this time. For more information or support, please get in touch with your child’s school. They are there to help. Our telephone support service is also available for West Lothian families. We are here to listen and support you – 01506 283130
There are 7 questions and it should take 2-3 minutes to complete. If you have more than one child, please complete a survey form for each of your children in turn.
Primary 1 to Primary 3 has started to use Seesaw in school. This is a new App which we will be using in school and at home.
Your child will bring home a QR code which should be used to log them in – please keep it safe. Try the QR code to get used to using it. Ask your child to use the draw tools to draw a picture or write their name or some words. Upload this to their Journal (Click on the green circle with the tick). As everyone becomes more familiar with the platform you will find more “Activities” set by the teacher.
Below is a link to a video that shows you how to log in and use some of the basic functions. I hope you find this helpful.
myON is essentially an online library which has some additional tools. It will be the main source of reading material for home and school use.
myON is from Renaissance Learning, the same company that provides Accelerated Reader, a program that has been used in school for a number of years. myON has some integration with Accelerated Reader and Star Reading which is used to help select books at an appropriate level.
Please take some time to look at the Parent Information Sheet and the introductory video. Please take some time to connect Star Reader Scores.
It would also be useful to download the App and set up access on as many devices as possible to ensure easy access.
During the next week or two, it would be really helpful if everyone becomes familiar with the books that are available. Begin to read some books and start to add to the “list” of books you would like to read.
Try the audio function with some books and try just reading others and see your time spent reading add up. Take some quizzes!
Integrate myON into your daily routine!

There will be no homework posted on the school blog for Primary 2/1 this week as it is the last week of term. Please feel free to complete tasks on Seesaw although this is not compulsory.
Have a great last week of term!
This great girl was a super friend today and helped someone up when they had fallen in the playground. Well done!
These two super boys wrote fantastic recounts of the Nativity story. They included lots of detail and wrote in their own words. Well done boys!
We have had lots of fantastic learning experiences this term in Primary 2/1. Attached is an overview of the things that we have learned in class. Please also have a look at the school Twitter page to see some photographs of some of our learning.
We are looking forward to having lots of Festive Fun next week with our Christmas Mass, Online Panto, Christmas activity afternoon and Christmas movie day too.
