As part of P7’s topic, Risks to Health, we created posters about how to say no effectively to peer pressure. These were created to share with P6 in order to pass on what we have learnt. We met with P6 and shared with them our posters, took part in peer assessment and were given two stars and a wish about our work from the P6’s. Thank you for your help P6!
P4 and P7 joined together this afternoon to share their learning experiences in ICT. P7 taught P4 how to use P7 which is a quiz website and P4 taught how to do coding using the microbits. It was great to see the children working together and sharing their knowledge.
Our community police officer came in to visit P7 today as part of our topic, Risks to Health. She talked to us about drug awareness and answered our questions. The highlight definitely seemed to be getting put in the handcuffs!
As part of our whole school Health and Wellbeing focus Primary 2 have been discussing our feelings. We thought about how these feelings might look and used different colours and shapes to show our ideas.
This term as part of our Health and Wellbeing focus, P7 are learning about Risks to Health, with particular focus on drug and substance abuse. This week we have been discussing peer pressure and how to say no effectively. The children acted out different scenarios in regards to being pressurised to do things that they wouldn’t want to do, and to work on strategies to help them deal with these situations. We particularly enjoyed making props to aid our roleplay!

Happy New Year to you all , I hope that 2019 is a happy and healthy one for you.
We have had a very busy first week back. The staff were all delighted with how quickly the children have settled back into their learning.
This block , up until the February break, there is a focus on health and wellbeing in every class so our pupils have already been exploring different aspects.
As a staff we have worked on tracking pupil progress using the James Nottingham Quadrants and the Leuven’s Scale of Engagement – these tools help us to think deeply about progress, attainment and engagement in learning, for our pupils as individuals and to plan necessary future steps. If interested, you can find out more at https://vimeo.com/119767139
Miss McKay also ran a session for us looking at Making Thinking Visible techniques – approaches to learning which encourage richer thinking and deeper understanding for our learners and ourselves as teachers. If you are interested in finding out more > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQTYcZf40ag
We have a busy term ahead and a calendar and newsletters will be coming your way next week.
