Online Learning 2021

Dear Gilmerton families

During this period of school closures, we will be using Microsoft Teams as our main platform for learning. Teaching staff will posting activities three times a day

Numeracy – 9.00 – 10.30

Literacy – 11.00 – 12.30

Health and Wellbeing / Interdisciplinary learning – 1.30 – 3.00 (2.45 for P1 and P2)

Teaching staff will be available during these slots to introduce, explain and support the learning on Microsoft Teams.

All pupils have been issued with log in details for MS Teams, as well as a variety of other digital platforms frequently used in school.

Microsoft Teams can be accessed on a smart phone, laptop, tablet and games consoles. Pupils have been using ipads in school to familiarise themselves with Teams since our return in August.

Should you run into any technical issues accessing Teams, the main activities will be uploaded to the school website daily (we will aim to have these uploaded by 5pm the previous day). Please note that this will not include any explanations / videos or live or recorded lessons as these will available on Teams.

All lessons will stay on Teams for a week should you need to revisit at a more convenient time.

As always, please remember that keeping your family safe and happy is the most important thing during lockdown. You also know what works best for your family.

For lost MS Teams or other login details, please contact the school office at – we will be able to help you get back online in no time 🙂

We look forward to checking in with all our pupils during this lockdown. Our Senior Leadership Team will facilitate a whole school assembly every Friday. Please look out for the link to this in your teams calendar.
