Parent Update 5

Updated BGE Live Lesson Timetable

 

Maths Department announcement

As we now start to welcome some of our senior pupils back to school, we have made some changes to our BGE Live Lesson timetable for S1-S3 pupils.  Please check the timetable at the end of this document for specific subjects and times.  Staff will continue to communicate information about Live Lessons via Google Classroom, students should be checking the ‘stream’ section of their Google Classrooms regularly.

 

Update from Mr Atkinson, Principal Teacher of Maths:

Maths is a subject area where knowledge and skills are built up incrementally. It is very important to have solid foundations and the Maths Department wish to ensure that learners receive feedback at each stage of learning so that misconceptions can be addressed before moving too far ahead with work.

 

This reduces frustration and prevents learners getting demoralised. This is a major risk if four tasks are submitted at the same time (or a longer task with four distinct tasks) with a misunderstanding in the first task leading to preventable errors in tasks two, three and four.

 

In Maths, we wish to provide prompt feedback at each stage of learning to ensure that the early bricks provide solid foundations for future learning.  For these reasons the tasks issued in Maths will generally be shorter and have staggered deadlines. Although the deadlines may be closer together than in other subjects, the quantity of work still aims to be in line with the expectations across the whole school.

If you have any queries or issue arising from this update please contact us at:

penicuik­_hs@midlothian.gov.uk in the first instance so it can be directed to the most suitable staff member to deal with the matter.
