Home Learning 6-8 January 2021

This week’s home learning is entirely optional. It is there for you to use if you want/need it but there is no expectation that it will be completed and there is no need for it to be submitted to school. Anything you do not use this week can be dipped into at any time during the period of home learning. More information on home learning from 11 January onwards will be available later in the week.

For those of you who are not familiar with the format of last year’s P3 & P4 home learning, here is a brief explanation of the layout and content. Below, you will find a PDF of a home learning “grid” for your child’s year group. It has tasks and activities in Literacy, Maths and Health & Wellbeing for the two and a half days of learning time this week. Any text in blue and underlined are active links to online resources; any text in green indicates that there is a viewable/printable resource available in a separate tablethese are NOT clickable on the Home Learning Grid. If you have problems clicking on the blue links in the grid, you can hold down the control key, then click, or it may be easier if you download the PDF. The table appears on this webpage, underneath where the grid is, and that has links to any resources you might need for the activities. They are in the appropriate part of the table for the task they match. None of the resources have to be printed out to be completed. All of them can be viewed on a tablet, phone, laptop etc and the tasks written into a jotter or on paper.

Friday 12th June


Hi everyone, we are at the end of another week of home learning.  All the P5 teachers are really proud of you and your hard work.  Thank you for uploading your pieces of writing we really enjoy reading them. Over the last 2 weeks it is important that you try to become confident with working with teams. You should be able to independently access it, add a comment, ask a question and upload your writing to Assignments.  If you are not confident with any of these skills work on them over the next 2 weeks. Teams will be used in August to help with your home learning so it is important that you can access it. 

New science topic for the next two weeks

Please find below your literacy and numeracy grids for this week.   Have a great weekend everyone!

Work week beginning 8th June

Work for week beginning 25th May

Hi everyone, there will be no literacy or numeracy grids this week as all p5-7 pupils will be doing an exciting new topic called ‘Developing the Young Workforce’. Literacy and numeracy activities have been embedded in the Developing the Young Workforce learning grid. All the resources you will need will also be found on your class Team page. You need to listen to the video first before you complete any of the activities as it gives you a detailed explanation about you need to do.

See below for the information video;

See below for the learning grid;

Your extended writing task will be on Assignments and should be uploaded to your class teacher by Friday 29th May. We hope you enjoy it!

Remember to click on the link above to be directed to Mrs Morgan’s weekly newsletter to keep up to date with all the new and exciting things happening in the school. We hope the weather gets better over the weekend so we can all take part in walking 5oo Morningside Miles for 500 miles. See the links above for more information.

Have a great weekend everyone!

P5 teachers

19.5.20 Here’s your literacy and numeracy grids for this week. Remember to log on to your Fever team page and learn the songs for the Scottish Opera. Also, send Mrs Morgan any pictures of all the wonderful things you have been doing from the Food Technology grid. Have a good week!

New Science topic – Light

How light travels powerpoint will be on your Science Team and Class team page.



Hi everyone,

Here’s your Literacy grid and Numeracy grid for week beginning 11th May. Remember tomorrow is a holiday so that is why you are getting your work today for next week. Remember you will find all your grids on your class Team page as well.

Ongoing learning will continue with the previously issued grids. This is the last week of your 1980’s topic. Remember to let Mrs Morgan know if you are doing anything exciting from the Food Technology grid- you can email her pictures.

This week we will be trying out ‘Assignments’ on your class Team page. This will be a new way for you to be issued your writing task and hand in your finished work. You will no longer be uploading your extended writing task to One Note. When you hand in your work through ‘Assignments’ we will be able to mark it and then return it to you through ‘Assignments’. The P7’S have trialled this method and it has been very successful.

I can’t believe we have now completed 5 weeks of home learning. We are really proud of you all. Well done!

Fingers crossed the sun comes back out this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!

Monday 27th April

Thank you for all your hard work this week and thanks for letting us know how you are getting on. It has been so lovely to see so many of you checking in on the class Team pages over the past week.  It has been great to see you all help one another by answering questions and giving advice.  If you haven’t checked in with your class teacher in Teams yet, please try to do so in the next couple of days.  It’s really important we hear from you.  We know there have been quite a few issues for some of you trying to get onto Teams or OneNote – hopefully most of your problems have been resolved, but if not, we promise we are working on a solution to them. This is a new way of working for all of us, so please do not panic if something doesn’t work.     

The work is attached to this post but it will also be available in the relevant Team page. If you have any issues throughout the week, please contact your class teacher directly through Teams and they will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Have a good week! 

P5 Teachers 

See all resources and planning grids below:-

Topic You have a new topic grid based on the 1980s (to last 3 weeks). Pick one or two activities to complete each week if you can manage.

Tuesday 21st April 

Good morning everyone! We hope you all had a lovely break and were able to spend some quality time outside in the sunshine.  It has been so nice having such great weather for a change. We hope you are ready for another week of home learning!

We will continue to update you on our class page, but you will find everything you need on Teams in your 365 account. When you go to your class Team’s page go to the ‘file’ section and you will find the class materials you need there.

Try and plan out your week so you are able to complete your set tasks. Remember to upload your writing task so your teacher can give you feed back. It would be really helpful if you tell your teacher on Teams that you have uploaded your piece of writing.

If you have questions post on your class team, or send a private message to your teacher by pressing the pencil icon at the top of the page on teams.

Remember to just try your best!

Good morning P5!  We hope you have had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine.  We hope you have managed to settle into your new routine and are beginning to feel a bit more confident with home learning.  Don’t worry if you haven’t done much so far, just aim to do a couple of activities this week from your topic grids.  Remember if you have any questions use the ‘Private Chat’ function on your One Note profile.

This week…

 Remember to continue with an energetic start to the day and join Joe Wicks. He will make you feel energised and ready to tackle your day ahead.            

Continue with your daily maths sessions on Sumdog. 

Be kind to everyone and try and encourage each other.

Happy Friday everyone, 

For anyone looking for links for our various literacy and maths areas, you can now access them all here.

We have completed our first week of home schooling.  I hope you are enjoying working through the learning grids that were issued in your learning packs.  If you can, try and upload some of your work to your One Note profile so your teachers can see how you are getting on.  Don’t worry if you don’t manage it.  Also, try and keep up with current affairs by watching Newsround every day. 

Remember Joe Wicks has a great workout every day at 9am which is saved on his you Tube page to do whenever you like. 



Remember to login into Sum dog every day and practice your skills.  We can see how well you are doing and the time you spend on it. We might even set you a few challenges to complete. 

Times Tables 

Now is a really good time to work on your tables.  Use the websites below to help you. 




Please try to spend some time each day completing silent reading on a book of your choice.  Try to aim for a minimum of 20minutes each day.  There are also stories on audible which are free to listen to.


Have a great weekend everyone! 

We all miss you! 

P5 teachers 

We are really impressed with everyone who has logged onto Sumdog this week and tried to complete some of the challenges. If you haven’t logged on try to do it this week so your class teacher can see your progress with the variety of activities.
