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!
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!

On Monday P7 went to visit the Scottish Parliament as part of our topic ‘Who Represents us?’ This consisted of a workshop exploring how the Parliament came about and a tour around the building. This we loved as we got to go into the committee room and sit in the chairs that Nicola Sturgeon sits in and use the microphones! We took part in a quiz and the adult group came first! (though were disqualified due to competitiveness sadly)
It’s been very very busy in P1 with the run up to Christmas… the Nativity, the Fair, the Lunch and next week the Party and Church Service!
But we have even managed to squeeze in creating a few crafts to sell at tomorrow’s fair!
Hopefully everyone now knows the time that your children will be manning our stalls from the stickers yesterday.
We have worked very hard to create some beautiful handmade, bespoke and unique wrapping paper and gift tags!
There will be the individual bundle created by your child for you to buy, these are rolled up and ready to go!
Also there are lots of extras hanging up and on the mug trees for you to peruse and buy too!
£1.50 for the rolled up+ribboned bundle = 2 sheets of wrapping paper and 2 gift tags made by your child
Individual sheets of wrapping paper- 50p each or 3 for £1
Gift tags- 30p each or 4 for £1
** Also not to worry if you cannot make it along tomorrow as we will save your child’s bundle and if you send in the money we will happily send them home for you.**
In the meantime we hope you are enjoying our Nativity!
As a whole school we have been thinking about others a lot this term.
We had the Children in Need day where we raised money for children less fortunate than us by dressing up and through the Bake Sale. We all looked fabulous during the Whole School Jog! We learned about what Children in Need is and does in class as well as at a special assembly.
It was also a special Remembrance Sunday this year, as it marked the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Again as a school we came together to learn about this very important event and how we show respect to everyone involved. We made our own poppies and collaboratively created the wreathes to join with the community’s display.
We would also like to say Thank You for the donations for the local foodbank, we know that everything brought in will be very much appreciated
