Art Wednesdays With Mrs McLoughlin 20th Jan

Mrs McLoughlin has more art for you. Every Wednesday Mrs McLoughlin posts an art project for you to try at home if you like.

This week it’s tartan designs for Scots week.

If you try any out you can always share your art with her at @LoughlinUpdates on twitter if you are using it.

Scots Week Assembly

Normally on this Monday of the year we would be starting Scots week, learning about Scottish culture and language and having a brilliant Scots assembly with The Sorries.

Well The Sorries surprised us today by sending a brilliant video assembly for us.

The link is below. It is one of the highlights of our school year but not normally one our parents and carers get to share so why not watch this over your lunch or after the working day with your whole family to share the fun.

Thank you to The Sorries!

Home Learning for Week Commencing 18th January 2021

Welcome to our second week of home learning for lockdown 2.

This week there are two documents here.

The key one is a learning grid for each class detailing learning tasks.

The second is a suggested learning timetable. Naturally this timetable should be adapted if needed to your own circumstances but do take note of the time of class meetups on teams etc and how long you might expect to dedicate to a task before moving on.

There will also be an additional post for each class with this term’s intended learning.

It is important to note that this time around TEAMS will be available to all classes with the learning below, additional tasks, videos and face to face meetings all taking place there. Make teams your first place to look for learning.

For a general reminder of what to expect from digital Dalry also read Mrs Honeyman’s Newsletter from earlier in the month

 

It is important to note there are physical home learning packs to pick up from school this week to supplement and go with the learning here and on teams. Please click here to check the latest newsletter for details of when to collect yours.

 

Here are the Home Learning Documents for this week.

Try Orienteering

Just becasue we are in lockdown doesn’t mean you can’t try new sports.

Orienteering is sort of like a treasure hunt. You go to all the points on a list (controls) and write down a code or take a stamp. You try to do this as quickly as possible.

Here’s video to give you an idea (not lockdown style)

The great news is there are some orienteering courses that have been set up in Edinburgh by ESOC (Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club) and can be used during lockdown. ESOC are a charity so please consider a donation if you use the course.

They aren’t super close to Dalry but if you don’t mind a walk or have a car you could use them for excercise. Don’t use public transport to get there during lockdown.

Remember to not touch the control posts as you go around. Just copy the codes down with a pen. And don’t forget to time yourself.

You can post your best times to Mr D or the School on twitter.

Here are the control lists and maps for each course.
