Email communication and suggested timetable

Dear P1 Parents and Carers,

While school is closed, you will be able to contact your child’s class teacher via email. Teachers will respond to any queries you may have about learning and you are also welcome to attach photos of learning for feedback. Please send emails between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and we will aim to respond by the end of the next working day.

In order to support you with organising a day of learning, please see the example timetable below of a typical school day. Please bear in mind that we adopt a play-based approach to learning in P1, so any written or verbal activities should be interspersed with free play, games and other activities. We hope you find this useful.
