Week 4 and Family Learning

We have lots of national day/weeks going on this week and lots that we can be looking at in relation to them. A reminder to check in on your Google Classrooms and click ‘Mark as Done’ on the right hand side to make sure you are recorded as registered. All the classes have one weekly Google Meet with their teacher and these are in the weekly timetable along with recorded teaching lessons which can be accessed at a time that suits families. Mrs Laird spoke with Education Scotland last week to highlight the excellent work being done by the pupils and staff. You are all doing fantastic!
