Primary Five

Dear Parents/Carers of P5

We are delighted with how well our classes have settled in to school and it is lovely to see such happy children in our classrooms.

Uniform 

Firstly, could we just remind you to make sure that names are on EVERYTHING belonging to the children.  This makes life so much easier for everyone. 😊 Make sure your child comes in with an outdoor coat and a change of shoes to wear indoors (gym rubbers). For the purposes of social distancing, we would be grateful if you would continue to practise with any tricky zips or laces that continue to be a challenge for them!

Snack 

Morning snack is usually eaten inside the classroom after morning break (10.30am).  As lunchtime is 12.10, a small snack should satisfy the children until then.

Water Bottles 

Please ensure your child comes into school with a water bottle which has been filled.  It would be great if you could supply your child with a second water bottle so they don’t need to refill during the day.

PE

Mr Glass will be teaching P5 on a Wednesday.  At this time, classes will be outdoors as much as possible, so please ensure that your child wears appropriate clothing on that day (eg trainers, leggings/joggers, school jumper/sweatshirt).  For safety reasons, hair should be tied back.  If required, the children will also be asked to wear their outdoor coat.

 Home Learning 

If your child is self-isolating from school, please look at the Home Learning Grids tab and select activities to complete from the P5 grids.

We are continuing use SeeSaw for Home Learning activities.  The children will also be using this to share work that they are proud of. Please get in touch if you need support accessing the App and your child’s work.

We really do appreciate all that you do to help support your child’s transition back to school.  If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via email.
