Epic 81.6 mile run!

A huge congratulations to Mason’s Dad for his amazing run from his home in Inverness to Brora this weekend and has raised a staggering ÂŁ16000 for charity.

He began his ultra-marathon on Friday night at 8pm on his birthday and arrived in Brora on Saturday afternoon with a time of 18 hours and 12 minutes.

Mason ran the last mile with his Dad and his big brother Dylan ran the last 15 miles with Dad too! Boys this is amazing – just look at those smiling faces as they approach the finishing line.

A huge thank you to Louise Mackay, photographer, for sharing these photos and allowing us to include them on our blog.

Here are all the boys supporting Mr MacKay on the final leg of his challenge.

Congratulations to everyone – enjoy the rest! 🙂

Goodbye and wishing you well

Last day of term…

Milton of Leys Primary School

So we have arrived at the end of a term which has been both unexpected and unprecedented in its nature. It has been so positive to see how we have been able to work together to continue to provide continuity for our children. Thank you to all pupils, staff, parents and members of the wider community who have come together to make online learning possible over the past week. We know there will be much to learn from and build on over the coming weeks but it is clear that the children of our school have been able to set themselves up for this new phase of learning at a challenging time for everyone, and we are grateful for everyone’s time and effort in making this happen.

As we now enter the holiday period, teachers will not be allocating specific learning on the google classrooms, nor EYPs for nursery children…

Educational Continuity during Easter

Easter is nearly upon us and I’m sure you all need a break but there are resources on the Highland Digital Hub, on BBC bitesize and many many other online locations if you want to access them.

Here is a list of really useful sites recommended by our Digital team:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize https://learnathome.withyoutube.com/ https://bumps2bairns.com/ https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons https://artfulparent.com/ https://www.3dgeography.co.uk/ http://www.amazingeducationalresources.com/ https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/watch-and-listen/ https://a2zhomeschooling.com/explore/homeschool_explorations_directory/

Please only use these if you wish to, there are no expectations for your child to be online unless you wish them to be.

Look forward to seeing you again on Google Hangouts on Tuesday 14th April at 10.30am, take care and look after yourselves. 🙂

Good morning!

Blog post from 26.03.20

We hope everyone is beginning to settle into routines with their learning at home this week. It has been great to see so much learning through the google classrooms and to see children being able to stay in touch with each other and their teacher using google hangouts!

We appreciate that this is a learning curve for everyone and comes at a time when the community is facing additional pressures and fears with the Coronavirus epidemic. Please remember as we have said since the school closure announcement last week, that we are here for you and willing to support in any way possible. Online learning is a national response for the continued provision of education for our children. You will have heard directly from teachers by email so that you have an immediate point of contact, as well as my own email. We are here to…

Friday fun at MOL

Milton of Leys Primary School

Image result for chickAs tomorrow is now our last day of term, we are organising some Easter-linked fun at school! Children (and adults!) are welcome to come to school dressed down/in Spring colours for the day. We will have the chance to learn about Easter with crafts and activities, as well as some outdoor fun if the weather is kind to us!

Please check on the blog later on today for any further information about school closure procedures. We are waiting for more guidance from the Highland Council today which will likely follow the Deputy First Minister John Swinney’s expected announcements at 2.00pm today.

If you have not already done so, please email the response to the school about your child’s access to a device/Wifi for online learning at home as per the letter emailed yesterday. You can also access this by clicking on the link below and emailing to the school email…

The Scottish government announced today that schools are expected to be closed by the end of this week. As I set out in the letter to all parents/carers today (see link), we will do all we can as a school to support the children and families of our school through this time. As any information is shared, I will update the main school blog so please check this regularly.

Today’s letter concerns updated information to ensure we can support your child’s learning using online digital resources. This letter has been emailed to all parents using the primary parent contact email address kept by the school (ELC and P1-7). You should email the completed form back to the school.

Highland Council focuses on delivering statutory services

The Highland Council is planning for greatly increased staff absence levels over the coming days and weeks. National modelling estimates that councils will see absences of at least 50% over the months ahead. We are no longer operating under business as usual, in order to focus on priority and statutory services.

Today (18 March 2020) a number of Highland Council staff who are at a higher risk from coronavirus (COVID-19), have been advised to follow self-isolation measures, in line with current government advice.

This group of people include those who are pregnant or have a specific underlying health condition.

Anyone with any of the coronavirus symptoms is also advised to stay at home for 7 days and their other family members for 14 days.

In addition to this group, many Council staff are also parents and staff will have additional…
