CBBC Primary Education Television

The BBC are showing three hours per day of Primary Education Television. From 09:00 each day, your child can watch educational TV during this period of school closure on the CBBC channel.

Contact With Your Child’s Teacher

During this period of school closure, our teachers will aim to contact each family in their class by phone call once per week. This will be done during normal working hours and is for checking in, providing support and giving feedback and encouragement to learners. If there are any times at which you will not be able to take a phone call, please let me know by emailing me at katrina.innes@brunstane.edin.sch.uk . Please get in touch if you think we might not have a current phone number for you.

To send work to me, please email me at the above email address or send to me on Twitter @BPSMiss
