As we begin our seventh week in lockdown I hope you are all
continuing to stay safe and well. The staff at Ladywell Primary are missing all
of the children and are hoping that we will see you all again soon.
Teaching staff are continuing to post learning activities
for the children to work through. You will find these by going to our website
or by logging onto Glow and joining the class team.
If you are unsure how to do any of this please contact me
and I will offer support.
As well as posting learning activities, teaching staff are
working on the completion of yearly reports. I am hoping that I will be able to
get these to you before the end of term.
Some teachers have also helped me in the delivery of school
resources to some families. It has been lovely to have a quick, socially
distanced chat, with some children and parents.
Class teachers are providing ways for the pupils to keep in
touch, not only with teaching staff but also with each other. Information on
this can be found on your child’s class blog.
As well as this, many of our teachers are home schooling
their own children! It really is a challenging time for everyone!
This week I will be working at the Motherwell Hub. I am
looking forward to seeing some of our Ladywell pupils there.
I am also in the process of contacting our new P1 parents to
introduce myself and to welcome them to the Ladywell community. It has been
lovely to talk to some of our new families as, at this time, we would
ordinarily be welcoming the children into the school for their P1 visits.
Our P7 teachers are having virtual meetings with the
secondary school staff as part of the transition process. This will be ongoing
throughout the remainder of this term.
As I have said in previous letters, please do what is best
for your child/children and family. Keeping our young people settled, safe and
secure must be the priority right now.
If there is anything I can do to support your family or if
you would like to discuss a concern or worry please contact me on my email
below and I will be in touch.
Please continue to stay safe!
