P1 & 2 Reporting to Parents

Dear Parents/Carers

Reporting to Parents 
Between now and Christmas, you can expect a written update on your child’s progress and learning.   Each week, a small group of children will be the ‘focused’ children allowing us to observe your child closely while they play and learn to find out more about their interests and how they are progressing.  To reduce documents being sent home from school, we will be using Class Notebook on Microsoft Teams to share the written profile with you.   This will include snapshots to show your child’s learning as well as comments from the teacher and child relating to progress and observations.  You will only be able to view your own child’s profile.  A short (5 minutes) follow up parent consultation phone call will be arranged following the written profile.  You will receive an additional letter with all relevant dates specific to your child.Prior to the profile, there will be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have using the parent/carer communication page on Class Notebook. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the profile for you to include your comments.  
Your child’s Office 365 password will be sent home in Homelearning Jotters. Once you have accessed Microsoft Teams,  you will findClass Notebook.  For support with this, please see the attached written guide and video links below.  These will also be available on the school website, under the class page. If you continue to have problems, please contact myself or the school admin account for further assistance.

Weekly homelearning tasks will be posted on the ‘General’ channel on Teams from next week.  Primary one and two pupils will not be expected to complete homelearning online (unless during isolation periods).   Please use the learning at home jotter (sent home this week) to complete any written tasks. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Many thanks,
