Home Learning

 

As more cases of the COVID-19 Coronavirus are confirmed throughout the country, and school closures have been enforced, we would like to reassure parents that we are trying our best to ensure children still have access to learning materials.

Staff have put together ‘Home Learning Grids’ and 'Home Learning Packs' for each class that provide activities, ideas and games that you can conduct with your children at home.  We have also put together a list of websites, which provide free learning activities and games for children of all ages.  

Your child’s teacher will email a weekly suggested timetable, activities, links and login details either through GLOW (for P1-4 pupils) or on Microsoft Teams (for P5-7 pupils).  

Additionally, you will continue to be able to send messages to your child’s class teacher using this platform.  Please contact the school office if this system does not work for you.
