Day 1

Good Morning Parents and Carers,
I hope that you have all had the best possible weekend under the circumstances.
Loirston Staff have been busy preparing activities for your children and you will be hearing from the teachers throughout the week either on the Google classroom and ILD for P4-7 or the ILD for younger pupils. We will blog regularly and hope to post work on Twitter. So please send us photos of what you are doing at home. These can be uploaded to Google or the ILD.
It is very important that you remember though that there is no need for your child to be completing written tasks constantly between 9am and 3pm. Nor do we expect or want any pupil to be at a computer constantly.
At school your child has breaks, PE, takes part in creative tasks, works in groups, has discussions, watches educational videos, chats to their friend and occasionally just switches off.
Please allow them plenty breaks. Mrs Greenhill will be posting lots of active ideas so that your child can take part in those. Please let them go with their interests and creative side. Cook with them, let them play with lego, take breaks outside (socially distant), let them read books, use audiobooks, teach them new skills-it should not be all about sitting writing or on a computer. Enjoy this time together.
Please also get in touch if you have any queries about your child’s learning or if ww can help in any other way.
I would also like to take this opportunity to let you know that Mrs Bushell has decided to return to Canada in the light of current conditions. She will not be returning to school so Mrs Hidson will continue to lead the learning for the pupils in Primary 5. We are very sorry that Mrs Bushell has had to leave us like this and that we did not have time to give her a good send off.
We will be in touch again soon!
Acting Head Teacher
