Home Learning for Week Commencing 22nd June

BeforeΒ  We Give You The Home Learning…

…be sure to check back here on Tuesday for the unveiling of the Dalry’s Got Talent 2020 showreel. Mrs Ewen is working super hard to process all the amazing entries for us.

And do look out for summer fun suggestions for home activities both in the list below and through the week.

New Teacher Videos

We normally have a special moment in school each year, where the children move class for half a day to meet their new teacher. This year we can’t do that but you can meet the new teacher at home.

New teacher reveal videos have been made by the teachers and Mr Bennett and will be out on Monday in the newsletter and by parent mail. To share in the fun be sure to watch them with your child BEFORE telling them who their teacher is.

If you are in P1 or P1/2 also be sure to wait for the email so you get the right classes. All other classes are moving up in the obvious manner (P2a becomes P3a, P4/5 becomes P5/6 etc) so when the list comes watch the video with your child before telling them who their new teacher is!

Here are the Home Learning Grids and Documents for this week.

Discussing Equality and Black Lives Matter with Children

Here are some resources you may want to use to discuss the issues coming out of the current Black Lives Matter protests and their coverage in the media with your children.

In school we often find children have lots of questions and sometimes worries about things appearing in the news and it helps to give them a way to express them.

Diverse Movies Matter
