Afternoon Group

I will always send you the important information you need to know through OLJ and/or email, but I often put useful information on Twitter and Instagram too. You can find me on Twitter at @MsMcConnellSfL and the school at @Leith_Primary I’m on Instagram at @MsMcConnellSfL

Our Work This Term

Below you can see a picture of our Home Learning Grid. You can find website links, resource downloads and video links as you scroll down the page.

Every week, you will be sent a video on Online Learning Journals (OLJ) for guidance on tasks for that week. If you need extra help, let Miss McConnell know during her check in call or email her.

A pack of resources will be available for those who do not have access to a printer on Monday 25th May. Please see the first OLJ video for more information on how to collect your pack.
