Letter to Parents - First Day School Closure

Dear Parents/Carers,

On the first day of school closures we hope that you and your families can keep safe over the period of the pandemic.  There is lots of good advice to help us stay at home safely and it is important we remember to social distance ourselves at least 2 metres apart.

On Friday we said goodbye to our beautiful children and look forward to being together again in the new session. On Friday we had a lovely, happy day in the glorious sunshine with the children. They led the final assembly by singing their favourite songs by themselves or with their friends.  We are grateful to the Parent Council who donated sweets for each child and the Primary 7 children had a ‘mini celebration’ with a MacDonald’s and getting their shirts signed.

It is really important for you to develop routines to help your child have a sense of normality in their lives. Please check our website for a suggested timetable which you and your child/ren can adapt to suit their interests.

We will continue to provide on-line learning activities for the period the children are absent from school. Joe Wicks will be doing a live workout called PE with Joe Monday-Friday 9am on his The Body Coach TV Youtube Channel. Glasgow Science Centre are also planning to engage children on Youtube at 10am each day.

We look forward to re-opening the school when we are allowed too and this will include a P7 celebration and hopefully the drama show productions too. Please take care of you and your precious children whom it has been an honour to teach this session.

-Mrs McKinlay and all the staff of Bankhead Primary School
