What Scotland Learned

What Scotland Learned is a collection of inspiring stories about how practitioners across Scotland have responded during the COVID-19 crisis. It is structured around the five themes of How Good is OUR School? and includes contributions from children and young people, adults, families and communities.

100 of the stories have been published in the What Scotland Learned 100 stories of lockdown book. These and others are also available online at What Scotland Learned.

We are extremely proud that 6 Early Years stories from within Highland were selected by Education Scotland for inclusion within the collections. We are going to highlight each of them over the course of this week and we hope they provide some useful ideas, inspiration and reassurance to support your current remote learning provision.

We start with –

St Joseph’s RC Primary School Nursery, Highland  

Find out how the nursery team worked together during the first lockdown to engage children and families through developing a book online with the children and families which everyone could add to, share and look back on. The book aimed to help children by enabling them to see the nursery team and their friends, to reassure and support them during the lockdown period.

 “We used our book as a celebration of children’s skills and family learning and living in a community which is inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe.”

“Through using imagination and creativity and tackling new experiences we have all, children and adults developed new skills.” Read their story at St Joseph’s RC Primary School Nursery
