I hope that you have all been able to enjoy some fun outdoor time over the long weekend.  I was working hard tidying up my garden and it looks a lot better now.

As we are in Term 4 of Primary 1 we have included this terms 4 context planner for you to see what we are planning for this term.  Also, as you are learning at home we have included a handy reference guide showing some key points that we are hoping to cover each week, this of course may change a little as we go along but we hope having a rough idea of what is coming next will be helpful.

Below the planners there are this weeks Literacy, Numeracy and Mathematics, and, Other Curricular Areas Grids as well as this weeks building resilience story about Shakeel.

You will see that some of our learning is linked to National Smile month which started yesterday and British Sandwich week.  Also we are very excited to start learning in our new topic of OUR AMAZING WORLD!  and our picture above will give you a clue about this weeks focus!

As mentioned on Twitter you can also sign up for the 30 days wild challenge which has lots of resources that could be useful in our project and should be good fun

Welcome to P1A Home Learning – Week Beginning Monday 23rd March 2020

“Bonjour Clever Caterpillars”

I really hope you are all well and managing to find new ways of having fun and looking after each other.

You will find below three home learning grids – one for ‘literacy’, one for ‘maths and numeracy’, and, one for ‘other curricular areas’.  These are designed to cover one week and we will post new grids each Monday.

We realise that this may be a challenging time with uncertainties for you with regards to many aspects of your life, including your child.  We are providing these home learning grids as a way of consolidating the learning input that your child has already received at school.  We just want to clarify that we are not expecting you to home school your child, nor do we want to put any additional pressure on either yourself or your child.  Learning should be fun, engaging and relevant to real life.  Therefore, these grids provide ideas for practical learning activities which should help to keep your child’s learning alive, extend their enthusiasm for learning and revise what they have already learned at school.

Our home learning activities should also help to provide some form of daily structure during the absence of the school day.  Please note that we are also recommending that your child continues to spend at least 30 minutes per day on physical activity and at least two twenty minute periods per day sharing a book with an adult or older child.  Suggestions to help with these activities can also be found on the school website.

We encourage you  and your child to work on the activities provided, but at the same time, continue to look after the health and safety of you and your child.  Please do not hesitate to contact us on admin@eastcraigs.edin.sch.uk if you have any questions about home learning or the content of the grids.  Below there is also additional information to support you as P1 learners are Early Years learners.
