Thursday Already!

Early years activity can be found in the ELC tab or here

The last survey about home learning link is here and, again, please help us get things right, should we need to continue with a blended approach after the holidays. Please note that next week there will be another survey but it will be around technical and other resources for coming back to school – this will be in your best interest to fill it in and return to me.

John Swinney, Deputy First Minister announced on Tuesday that the hope of the Scottish Government was that all schools and early learning centres would be back in August ‘without restrictions’ so long as the virus was under control.

For some of you this may be a welcome statement, for others this might cause worry or pressure. We will continue to work together and analyse the way forward.

At this moment in time we abide by the 2m distancing rule and have made our arrangements with you. This stands until we are told otherwise. Obviously it will be good to be back with ‘no restrictions’ when the time is right. I will keep the blog updated over the holidays and nearer the time I will make sure there are video meets for people to talk through any issues that may arise between now and 12th August.

For those who have managed the video meets recently I have information ready to be shared with you all but we still haven’t had any information about early years so it would be wrong of me to issue without the full information. Please know that I will share as soon as possible.

We’re still hoping to share classes and teacher names with you tomorrow and this will be around 2.30pm via Dojo. However, there have been changes already to the staffing even this morning and I am still waiting for confirmation about other posts which will have a knock on effect for classes so…watch this space! As we say every year, things may change so these will be provisional classes only.

Finally, sit back and read this book. We might not be able to fly around the world yet (or even if we could have afforded it anyway!) but Maya in P2 has worked all lock down creating this book from around the world. The polar bear story tickled me…
