Welcome to Highland's Online Primary School for P4 - 7 (HOPS). Our 'Pop-up' Primary School.
Pupils, Parents & Carers:
Our online timetable is to assist pupils at home who are at home and is not intended to replace any online learning work that is set by schools. HOPS should help parents when pupils need additional work and tasks set on HOPS are ones that are designed to be used independently, taking pressure of parents and carers supervising home learning.
For pupils who have just started isolating, use week 1 as each week builds on the next in this 4 week block. The daily structure is there to help, but you don't have to complete it all! Use what you need and dip into the lessons. Every day has a theme associated with skills that we need, to be successful learners. These skills are from Blooms Taxonomy and help support the development of independent learning.
The padlet (virtual timetable) below is also available on the Google Classroom. So please can......
Pupils join the Google Classroom to access all resources and you can also ask any questions here. You will need to use your Chromebook and login with your school Google account here or join using the class code 2dtuojs
Teachers; please feel to use the resource in your own classroom.. All videos are pre-recorded so they can be used at anytime. You are also welcome to join the classroom too.
