Learning Together at Home 23.03.20

Monday 23rd March 2020 

Good afternoon P5H!  Welcome to the first day of learning together at home.  Below you will find your numeracy and literacy tasks for today.  There is also a document called Learning Grid (P5 Learning Grid) with lots of tasks covering other subject areas.  I recommend that you try one or two of these tasks to complete each day.

I would like to reiterate that I understand that there will be many parents trying to work at home whilst also caring for younger siblings and possibly other relatives.  I do not want any children or families to feel stressed or under pressure to complete these activities if it is not possible in your household.  Please do what you can.   I am on Microsoft Teams to answer any questions or concerns you may have.  As mentioned on Friday’s post, if you were not in school to receive your login then this is being emailed out (you should have received this earlier today). If you have any issues then please email the admin team.

Have a great day,

Miss Martin
