‘Our Planet’ Whole School Project
Our fantastic teaching staff have been working together to plan an exciting whole school four week project based on the shared theme of ‘Our Planet’. Please click on your child’s stage to access the project plans for week 1 (27th April).
A very warm welcome to Udston Primary School’s Home Learning Page. Firstly, we hope all of our wonderful children are safe, healthy and happy – we miss you all!
Behind the scenes, our fantastic Teaching Staff have being working hard to create relevant revision activities for our learners and have posted these in their Class Pages. Teaching Staff are also currently adding appropriate learning activities, based on these revision areas, to each child’s Education City Classwork Folder – we will notify families once this is available. We are sure you are aware that Education City have been experiencing technical issues due to the high volume of users accessing the site. They have assured us that they are working hard to rectify this issue. As you know, we are updating Twitter multiple times a day and sharing some fantastic educational links and ideas. We have collated these in the ‘Ideas & Links’ section of our ‘Home Learning’ area. If you have any difficulties accessing Education City, please choose another idea from our suggestions until it is back up and running. Miss Arneil has also put together a Digital Learning Home Revision Guide for P1-7 which you can access below.
We would like to reiterate that the Health & Wellbeing of our pupils, and you, their families, is what matters most to us. Spend time together as a family, talk, play, read, laugh, listen to some music, dance, watch your favourite film or cook dinner together. Do not put yourself, or your children, under pressure to complete the suggested revision activities. We understand, however, that you might be looking for some ideas and guidance so we have provided these Home Learning Revision documents as a helping hand. Please click on your child’s class to access these.
Most children should be aware of their learning groups e.g. for phonics & spelling word lists, if you need a reminder please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to share what you are up to at home, please tag us on Twitter @Udston_Primary.
Stay safe and well everyone – we hope it won’t be too long before we are all reunited!
The Staff at Udston Primary School
With the announcement of school closures at the end of this week, we are very aware that this could possibly be our Primary 7 pupils last week of school. We would like to reassure all P7 pupils and families that, if this was the case, we would ensure your child’s time at Udston Primary is celebrated and that they experience the traditions of being a Primary 7 Leaver. Although there is a lot of uncertainty right now, one thing we are sure of is that your child will receive the special send off they deserve, whatever that may look like.
Scots Language Week
This special week involves pupils taking part in a range of Scots-based learning experiences across the curriculum.
We would like to invite all pupils to research a Scots poem, song or story and to practise their chosen piece at home with you. Pupils do not have to learn their poem, story or song off by heart – they can bring a copy of it in with them to share with their classmates. Pupils will get the opportunity to share their chosen piece with their class this week. A selection of pupils will then get the chance to perform their poem, story or song at our special assembly on Monday 27th January.
Cheers an’ guid luck!
