Due to current restrictions, we have been unable to invite you to Curriculum Evenings in school this term. However, teachers have worked together to prepare the online presentation below. We hope this will give you an insight into what learning looks like at Sciennes for your child.
Remote Learning grids have been created by City of Edinburgh Council. These grids should be used to support Remote Learning in the event that your child is having to isolate. They are available below as Word documents to download or pdf files to view.
P1-3 will continue to use SeeSaw for online learning. It would be helpful if you could let us know in school hours as soon as possible if you are having trouble accessing SeeSaw.
We would also like to move towards providing opportunities for P1-3 children to interact with staff online via Microsoft Teams. We issued passwords before the holiday and will spend week beginning 11th January supporting families to get their accounts operational. We aim to begin hosting some live check-in times with the P1-3 pupils –at pre-arranged times in the week– from 18 January using Microsoft Teams’ two-way video functionality.
PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED RESPONSIBLE USE GUIDES AND SHARE WITH YOUR CHILD. CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org IF YOU DO NOT GIVE PERMISSION FOR THIS.
There is a link to Teams on the right hand side of this Class Page where you can log in directly using your child’s username 123456 and password.
Google ‘o365’ (for Office 365) enter your child’s email address email@example.com then enter username and password
We are conscious that the start of this term has been very different this year, with many of you not having been inside the school building at all. Therefore our P1 newsletter is a bit different to that of the rest of the school as we have attempted to show you what the first few weeks have been like for your child by including photographs in a Sway presentation.
Please see below the curriculum powerpoint presentation where we explain how teach literacy and numeracy, and how you can support your child at home.
We would like to thank you for you cooperation in working with us to make this the very best possible start of the children.
We are looking forward to welcoming all new P1 pupils to Sciennes Primary School in session 2020/ 21. Your child would normally have started their transition into Sciennes Primary School this term. However, due to the current restrictions our transition has had to be altered.
In Edinburgh, all Early Years settings and primary schools are working together on a joint project using Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ organised by The City of Edinburgh Council Early Years Team. This means that no matter what nursery they are enrolled in, or what primary school they move into, all children will be familiar with the same story and will have a shared experience.
