P7/S1 Family Learning Bulletin: October 2020 Edition

Monday 2nd November 2020

Welcome!

Welcome to the first edition of the P7/S1 Family Learning Bulletin. We are very excited to be working with so many students and families and we hope that you will find the bulletin interesting, useful and enjoyable. The bulletin aims to develop our ‘learning at home culture’ by using tried and tested approaches that help families work more confidently at home.

Family Learning

We recognise that parents and carers play a vital role in the education of their children and we understand that sometimes it can be difficult to know the best way to support your child at home. Parents/carers often tell us that they do not always feel confident to support in the way they would like to or they find it challenging to do meaningful activities.

Therefore, we have designed the bulletin to fit in with your busy daily lives as it can be accessed and revisited at any point. We recommend and encourage that you complete the activities together with your child and enjoy the fun tasks and games our staff have created for you.
