Interviewing? Make Sure It's At 10.30am On Tuesday – Joe Burridge

For the children

Good morning everyone.
Welcome to week two of home schooling. Apologies for not posting an update yesterday. We were busy in our Hub school, Broughton High. We are here over the next few weeks with children of key workers.
We hope you are all still keeping well and managing to do your daily home learning tasks. This morning in the Hub we all did the Joe Wicks workout. We wondered if lots of you were also working out?
Remember to checkout our ‘Through the Keyhole’ on Twitter where you guess which staff member’s home it is. Some of you are doing really well with your answers!

For Parents/Carers

Good morning. I hope you are all keeping well. As I’ve said above we are now based in Broughton High School where we have children of Keyworkers from category 1, 2 or 3 for whom no alternative childcare is available. There are staff here each day working on a rota. I am trying to make sure that there is always one teacher from each stage at home who can oversee the home learning for their year group, however if this becomes too difficult, I’ll let you know.
This week Miss Judges and Miss Stewart, our primary 6 teachers, have been learning about Office 365 Teams so they can start to upload children’s learning to class teams. This will start for P6 after the Easter holidays. Primary 4 and 5 will start soon afterwards. This will enable children to send their learning directly to their teacher and will allow their teacher to make corrections and give some feedback. There will be a short video tutorial on our website later this week which will explain how children can access this.

We’ve been made aware that some P7b parents were having problems accessing Miss McCrimmon’s email, but we’re happy to say that the issue has now been resolved.

If you feel you would benefit from a food parcel, please email me.
All nursery parents will be receiving an email today about accessing free school meals.
Warmest regards,
Maria Gowans
