Hi Everybody, 

Can you believe we only have 2 more weeks left before the summer holidays! What have you got planned with your family, any days out? 

We hope you are having a lovely time spent with your families and have been able to make some special memories. Have you thought about a way to document or remember your time in lock down? What about a scrap book with photos, drawings or explanation about the things you have done, said or felt during this time. We would love to share these with them when students are back at school in September. 


Message Jess using the contact form below for any class specific issues or just to make contact! It would be great to hear from you all. 


This weeks planning is up and ready for you to try, please do not feel like this is expected. Try what you can if this is appropriate for you. Just remember to be kind, helpful and listen to your families! Don't forget all our resources are organised into topics below s you can find them easily. There are also some new stories added to the story time sub page below. 


We miss you so much at St Andrews and are looking forward to seeing you back in September!  Remember to access the return to school information if this will support you and your family with your return to St Andrews


Jess, Hollie and Fiona

Orkney class is made up of 11 Year 7 students who have all started St Andrew's School in September 2019. As a Year 7 class, the students are working on settling in, getting to know the school and each other as well as showcasing what skills they have already. 


Moving from primary education to secondary school is no easy job! Orkney students have found that they need to learn to do a lot more for themselves, as well as begin to learn functional skills such as cooking, shopping and road safety. 


Literacy and Numeracy sessions are streamed to match our students ability and level of need. Students may be placed in Orkney, Bute or Lewis class for these sessions.  


Please use the home-school diary to pass any messages to us and tell us what the students have been up to. 


We look forward to our year ahead!
