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!
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!
Are you dealing with long-term, mounting stress? Are you feeling unable to cope?
People can feel at crisis point for many reasons, including:
Money or debt worries
Unemployment or problems at work
Changes in your health
Family or caring concerns
Whatever the issue, 1st Response can support you to resolve your crisis.
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

Bit of a catch up going on here but “recently” we were very lucky to be invited down to our East Linton Library as part of Book Week Scotland, where we met Heather and the Team and received our P1 Book Bug goodie bags.
While we were there we learned about the library and how it works as well as getting a few stories read to us and a bit of a sing song!
A lovely day and we hope the first of many visits to our lovely library!
Since then we have shared the stories in class and had discussions surrounding them, as well as listening to the authors read them online. We voted for our favourite and One Button Benny was clear winner across P1.
We raised £315.15 for Children in Need – great work everyone!
