Hello Trinity Learners

Sorry I’ve not been in touch since Monday.  I’ve been very busy doing my own learning at home trying to understand how to use teams on 365, how to upload a video (still working on that one) and how to make soup from a bizarre range of ingredients. 

I am so impressed with what you have been sharing with your teachers.  Some of you are certainly keeping them very busy.  I have however heard that there are already some of you giving up on keeping fit with Joe Wicks whilst some staff have got very sore muscles.

As I said at the beginning of the week  please remember that you learn in lots of different ways.  Try hard to do some of your learning that your  teachers have prepared for you but also use all the different websites and podcasts and TV programmes out there.  There is some really fab stuff to watch and learn from. 

As you know this week we are focussing on our school value of kindness and it’s been great to get messages and photos telling me about Trinity learners making breakfast,  feeding the cat (Bonnie), reading to younger brothers and sisters, teaching their family how to play swingball etc.  Look out for our online kindness wall on our website from tomorrow.

Drop me an email at Jacqueline.scott@trinity-pri.edin.sch.uk if you get a chance.

See you soon

Dear Parents / Carers

Please can you share the following with your children

Thanks

Hello Trinity Learners

I hope you all had a good weekend and were up and ready for ‘school’ today.   I know that some of you started the day with a workout with Joe Wicks or playing frisbee in the garden.  Well done.  Please remember that you learn in lots of different ways.  Don’t worry if you haven’t yet managed to start your learning at home tasks or haven’t yet been in touch with your teacher.  They’ll be there every day, Monday to Friday, if you want to send them a message about what you’re up to.   

This week we are focusing on our school value of kindness.  Being kind to your family and helping them out is also very important learning so perhaps you could wash the dishes, learn how to hoover or even clean the bathroom!  Or perhaps you could play a game with your brother or sister or read them a story.  You can email me and let me know what kind things you are doing and I’ll add them to our online kindness wall. 

See you soon

Mrs Scott

P3 Maths/Numeracy Teaching Input

This week we are focusing on subtraction. We have provided 3 different methods of subtraction to choose from:

Children should have an idea of which method is best suited for them and which one they are most familiar with. The column method is the most difficult strategy and may take a lot of practice before understanding if children have not been working on this in class already.

Choose 1 method to practise. Tomorrow (Tuesday) there will be questions uploaded for children to practise that method. We also welcome you to help further you child’s understanding by giving them other questions and working it through with them. We look forward to seeing their work and giving feedback/support.

Thanks,

P3 Team

P3 Weekly Learning Tasks 23.03.20

The weekly learning task grid shows the learning intended for the week alongside the daily tasks. Teaching input / specific activities will be uploaded throughout the week to support this learning (See P3 Website upload schedule). Try to get through as much as you can with your child, this is a new experience for all of us. As mentioned before, we are still here via email to support your child’s learning and give feedback/assess their work / provide assistance.

Good luck!

P3 Team

P3 website upload schedule

We have put together a schedule of what to expect each day on the website. Teaching input and activities will be in line with our weekly tasks uploaded on Monday. This is a provisional timetable and may change as time goes on and we find out what works, or what needs to be adapted.

The WOW wall is a chance to showcase pupil’s work from throughout the week. Each week there will be a different focus that teachers will be looking out for to upload to the WOW wall. On Friday, we will upload 2 pieces of work from each class that have stood out in accordance with the focus. The focus for Week 1 is interesting adjectives. We will be looking for children’s use of interesting/exciting adjectives to enhance their descriptive writing in their work this week.

P3 Working at home

Good luck to all the families starting our working at home journey on Monday! The P3 teachers will miss seeing the children every day but are still here to support and encourage learning. We’d all really appreciate an email from the children, a piece of free writing could be a teacher email. We may all be a bit overwhelmed next week, take time to look through the learning provided. There are no expectations to complete everything straight away. We encourage questions and would appreciate feedback. We look forward to hearing from you and your children, P3 Team.
