Home Learning Grid – 23/3/20

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is staying safe and well.  As I’m sure you have seen there are lots of e-learning opportunities available at the moment.  Many places have realised the difficulties our pupils are facing and are doing things to help.

However, as a staff we don’t want to bombard you with too much information right away.  Each week I will be posting a Home learning grid with activities that can be practised from home.  I am aiming for these to be available each Monday morning.  This weeks is attached at the end of this message.

This has been explained to the pupils who were able to attend school last week.  However, if you are in contact with any other members of the class please tell them (or remind them) of the Primary 4 blog and the other pages, including the Head Teacher’s Blog, on the school website.

Please remember to stay safe.

Mr. Madine

School Closures and home learning

During the school closures we will be updating the class blogs regularly to guide learning at home. If you have any questions please do email:

You should, hopefully, receive a home learning pack to assist in learning from home but we will be adding additional tasks here over the next few weeks.

There will be a School Closure Learning Grid for each stage (Early for P1, First for P2-4, Second for P5-7) published weekly on the blogs for you to work through over the course of a week, or more.

Here are some Active classroom activities that you may find useful (and are referenced in the School Closure Home Learning Grids).

You should have online log-ins and passwords for Active Learn and Education City. These are guides to help you log in: Active Learn – How to access and Education city – How to access if you didn’t receive. Please do email if you do not have the password information for your child.

Happy World Book Day 2020

We all celebrated World Book Day together on Thursday 5th March 2020.

We borrowed books from the Book Box.


We wrapped up our books so they couldn’t be judged by their cover and wrote a recommendation on the front so someone else could enjoy them.

The whole school participated in a book swap. We read the recommendations on the cover to help us decide on our new reading book.

We had an assembly with Mrs Jessop about the importance of bedtime stories. Then each of us had an exciting visit from a teacher in the school who read a bedtime story to us. We even had some delicious hot chocolate!

We are also all visiting Central Library Children’s library on George IV Bridge with our class. Some of us have been this week and some of us have visits planned over the next couple of weeks. We will be receiving our new library cards and taking part in an exciting session with the librarian.



If you took part in our homework reading challenge you can still hand it to your teacher for your chance to win a prize.

Remember that you can donate any books that you are finished with to our school Book Box.
