Home learning info for Primary 7

22nd Mar 2020

Dear parents, 

As you will be aware, school has had to close as a result of the current  COVID19 crisis.  

We have been busy preparing plans and materials for pupils to continue with their learning at home and strongly recommend that children continue to complete daily work and homework tasks during their time off school. 


Tasks will follow on as normal for P7:


  • AR reading
  • Spellings-ABC order
  • Literacy Day 93
  • MA Section 2, Test 12, Part A
  • Mental maths label


Individual spellings/mental maths labels are in diaries for the next few weeks and will be uploaded via SeeSaw after that. 

Each day should follow the normal homework pattern and homework will be marked on returning back to school.



We will publish a weekly plan at the beginning of each week to include Literacy, Numeracy, Topic, Religion and ICT as well as ideas for PE.  These plans will detail the concepts and activities that each child should work through.

The activities/resources for each concept will be sent to you through SeeSaw and/or this class website page so be sure to keep an eye on both!

There may be concepts which will need further explanation and we will try to include links to videos which should help with these.


Below is a list of other useful learning links and activities which will help to maintain your skills: 

📌 Literacy 

  • Keep a diary of your time off. 
  • Record your memories of your time in St. Joseph’s (Link to ICT task)
