About Kerrie Laird

Head Teacher of Glenuruqhart Primary School

Term 4 Week 4 Learning

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are safe, healthy and happy. I also hope you are finding the learning guidance manageable and supportive.

The idea is that there are plenty tasks to choose from, and with your support, your child can decide which activities to pick out each day. I would recommend small bursts of different subjects, with a movement break between.

Week 3 Home Learning

Week 3 already, I hope you all continue to be safe, healthy and happy. I also hope you are finding the learning guidance manageable and supportive.

The idea is that there are plenty tasks to choose from, and with your support, your child can decide which activities to pick out each day. I would recommend small bursts of different subjects, with a movement break between.

Week Beginning 20.04.20

Morning everyone, hope that you enjoyed the great weather over the weekend and were able to spend time in the garden and get out for some walks. It was lovely to bump into a few a you out walking down the Cover.

Please find guidance for home learning this week.  The overview, literacy and number documents include guidance for learning.

 You can contact me via my gmail address if support is needed on Adrian.macleod@glenurquharthigh.org.uk

Again, please do not feel there is any pressure on you. This is only a guide.

Google Classroom – Registration

As detailed in the main News post (copied below), we have been asked to keep a daily registration for all pupils. The Google Classroom app can be downloaded to any smart mobile phone and I would suggest this is the easiest way to access this. Your child’s login is: firstname.surname@glenurquharthigh.org.uk and their password is Noddy111

You can change the password and keep a note of it if you wish. Mrs Laird can reset these easily if it is lost or not accessible.

You need to go into Google Classroom and then answer the question each day to register your child. Please have a go today and let myself or Mrs Laird know if you have any problems. A more detailed guide to Google Classroom can be found in the link below.

Post from News blog:

This week staff have been discussing the best way of recording attendance. Today I had it clarified from Highland Council that we need to keep a daily attendance record. Staff feel that the best way to do this would be for the already set up Google Classrooms for P4-7. These have also been established for P1-3 (please see separate post on P1/2 and P2/3 class blogs for information on accessing these for each child.) A guide to Google Classroom can be found here:

Please can we ask that all children login to their Google Classroom and complete the registration question by 11am daily. A sample question for today has been posted for you to give it a go. If you are having any trouble with this please contact Mrs Laird on kerrie.laird@glenurquharthigh.org.uk.

Welcome Back

I hope you all are healthy and that you were able to enjoy the Easter break, although it would have been different this year.  I have been thinking about you all.

Please find guidance for home learning this week.  The overview, literacy and number

documents include guidance for learning.  The spelling bingo document is there to give you ideas to help with your spelling.  You can contact me via my gmail address if support is needed on Adrian.macleod@glenurquharthigh.org.uk

It is important to ease the children (and parents) back into doing school work. Please do not feel there is any pressure on you. This is only a guide.
