Home Learning in Primary 6

In Primary Six home learning activities will be based on the previous week’s learning to consolidate what has been covered in class. A weekly summary of the week’s learning and teaching will be posted to the blog on Fridays and will include suggested activities for home learning (see below). There is no expectation that all of these activities will be completed within the week and it is up to you and your child which of them you would like to focus on.

To reduce the risk of infection and cross contamination, where possible examples of home learning should be submitted electronically on Microsoft Teams or emailed to If it is not possible to submit online for any reason please send the work in with your child in their homework folder on Thursday, so that it can be quarantined for three days before going back home on Monday.

We are currently collecting back in the homework folders which went home pre lockdown so we can refill them with resources for home learning. If you have one of these at home please send them to school with your child as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch either by commenting on this post or emailing the school admin account.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend!

New rules

The Scottish Government have issued new rules to keep us safe and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. New rules can be confusing for us all.

Here is a visual representation of some of the new rules. They will help us all to understand them a bit better.

We will continue to check and follow local government advice.

Remember to clean your hands often and stay physically distanced from people who are not in your household.
