Home Learning - Primary 6

This is an extremely challenging time for everyone. During this time we will try our best to ensure that our children continue to learn. Below is a plan for each week, which will be regularly updated by the class teacher. This includes activities, resources and challenges. We would advise that your child follows a structured day, whenever possible. We appreciate that this will never replace teaching however it is important that children are still given the opportunity to learn and reinforce prior learning at home. We do not expect parents to become teachers overnight! This is not home-schooling, it is us trying to support you during a global pandemic. Please do not feel that your child needs to complete every task or stress if they are finding things challenging. Feel free to browse all our learning areas for additional ideas and resources.

During this crisis we would like to set up a method of communication with parents. Below you will find the email address of your class teacher. Please email the relevant teacher with both the name of the parent contact and the child's name only. This will facilitate a group contact list to be created.



Notice : We have received a good few emails so far. Thank you! It is really important that parents email us asap to enable us to set up a group contact list.
