Scotland Learns - Practitioners newsletter

We will publish a newsletter for practitioners with suggestions for learning activities for literacy and English, numeracy and mathematics, health and wellbeing and contexts for learning that will focus on other areas of the curriculum as well as Gaelic Medium Education. These are intended to complement the work you are already carrying out in school, establishments and local authorities and should be linked to class learning where appropriate.

We will also be sharing news, resources and helpful links as well as information to help you support parents and carers, and ideas from sharing practice from across Scotland. You can access learning activities at Scotland Learns.
