Boys and Girls, Lockdown is a scary time, so we thought that we would write a rhyme,
To put a smile on all your faces! Not in our classroom, but in different places
Lots of time with your family, we are sure it fills you with enormous glee
Home school teaching from mum and dad,when you return to school you will tell us “Sure they weren’t that bad!”

Missing your friends and playing out! It probably makes some of you want to shout!
Nannies and grandads, we can’t see, but safety really is the key
Watching movies on Disney plus - Stops you all making such a fuss
Oh, how all of us will never complain about school ever again!

One day this will come to an end
We hope you all haven’t driven mummy around the bend!
We will look back and cherish the thought
Of the lessons we learnt and the ones we were taught.

Mrs O'Donnell and Miss Ramsay

Home Learning - Primary 5

To all our girls and boys,

Mrs O’Donnell and Miss Ramsay here. We thought we would write you this letter to let you know that there is not a day that goes by where we don’t think about you. We really do miss each and every one of you and we hope you are all well and keeping safe. This is our fifth week off school and we know you probably have a lot of questions such as when we will be going back and when we will see our friends and school adults again. Unfortunately, we can’t give you an answer to this right now. I know that is strange because Miss Ramsay normally knows EVERYTHING and even she can’t give us an answer. So rather than think of all the things we don’t know, let’s look at what we do know…..

You are living through a time that will forever be remembered in history. When you grow up, people will talk about this time and what we did to get through it. They will talk about social distancing and how some shops closed. They will talk about how all the schools closed and how teachers had to send you your work online or make up learning packs. They will talk about how you painted beautiful, bright rainbows and stuck these on your windows and how you clapped so loudly on a Thursday night for the doctors, nurses and hospital staff who worked even when it might not have been safe to do so. This is a time that has never happened before and you are making history right now.

We know you are all so talented and we know that you are probably using this time to find new talents. Don’t be afraid to use this time to learn something new. Your new dance routines on tik-tok could make you a finalist on Britain’s Got Talent some day!! Mrs O’Donnell is using this time to tidy up her garden and is learning how to hula hoop and Miss Ramsay is using this time to learn how to bake and is even taking dance lessons in her living room!! She wants to be a backing dancer for Dua Lipa!

Go out to your gardens and play. Ask your parents to teach you the games that they played when they were little. Play skipping, hide and seek or make a fort in your garden with blankets! We promise you that you will laugh. LOUD! Cycle on your bike or go on your scooter when you go out for your exercise! If it’s raining, go out and jump in puddles….don’t be afraid to get soaked….it makes it even more fun!!

Finally P5, enjoy this time with your families in your homes. It really is precious. Tidy up your bedrooms, do your jobs about the house, share your toys and play games with your siblings…even the games you don’t really want to. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we see your smiling faces again, we are one day closer to this all being over!

Lots of Love

Mrs O’Donnell and Miss Ramsay
