As a school, we have decided that pupils should bring one bag to school each day, with their snack, lunch and water inside the bag (please bring enough water to last the day). They should have a mask in their bag too as we will encourage them to wear masks when going down to the toilets and moving outside their classroom 'bubble.' (This will not be essential.)
A named pencil case is being provided in Primary 4, which will stay in the classroom, this includes:
2 whiteboard pens
Children will also be provided with a ruler and whiteboard so please DO NOT bring any of these items from home.
If your child wants to bring colouring pencils (No felt tips) they may bring them but they will then remain in school.
So this is our last week of home school. Well done for keeping going, I'm sure you'll be glad to be having a break.
This week there a few safety activities assigned for you. We will also be continuing with our capacity activities. It is also right that we spend some time reflecting as we approach the end of this year. So take time to do that and then share your thoughts either on paper or on seesaw.
Anyone who hasn't completed the little get to know you activity for Mrs Charles from last week, please try and do so by the end of the week. All teachers will be taking a complete break from Seesaw after Friday as we try and finish up in our classrooms next week.
Thank you again for all your hard work over the past three months, all the work will pay off.
Finally, please have a safe and enjoyable summer.
I’m sure you all have lots of books at home to keep you reading, if not, Mrs Charles has kindly set up an oxfordowl.co.uk account for primary 4. Just log onto the website using username: forthillp4 and password: password.
You can also go onto Twinkl and use their selection of eBooks which will have resources for support activities.
If you’re wondering what books your child should be reading for their age, you can go onto the scholastic.co.uk website where they sort the books by age.
I hope this helps.
Dear parents and Primary 4 pupils,
This is obviously a completely new experience for all of us so it'll take time to adjust. However, it is REALLY important that you try and set up a structure for your day, plan out a timetable together and try and stick to it. It will take discipline but it is important.
A number of English, Maths and Science activities have been added to our class page, please make use of them. I hope you are able to download and print them and keep yourself working through the Primary 4 curriculum. If you can't print them just write the working out or answers on pages.
Anyone who has access to LEXIA please keep using it as this will help you to reach your target.
Below there is also a copied message from TWINKL, who are allowing parents free usage of their excellent website for a month. Please make use of this to continue your learning at home.
I have sent home Seesaw parent access codes, this will help us to stay in contact. I also have Pupil 'Home learning' codes prepared to go home so your child can upload some of their learning.
I am intending to upload activities weekly onto the website, as I think this will be more manageable for everyone.
Please take care of yourselves and make the most of this difficult situation. Keep in touch through SEESAW.

We’re also extending this to every parent and carer in your school so your pupils can still have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption.
