Stripy the Puppet – The Article is Published

I am delighted to share the article, Creative skills in practice: a creative process, which has recently been published in a new Care Inspectorate document, My Creative Journey. The article, on pages 27-28, describes the nursery children’s enthusiasm planning a party for Stripy, the nursery puppet, in February 2015. Sadly the photos I sent the Care Inspectorate were not used, so I attach the original slideshow which I shared at the Starcatchers’ conference in April 2015, showing many lovely photos of the children involved in creativity. Enjoy!

Stripy the puppet, a creative process

Parliament Outreach Visit

This week we had Iain Clark from the Parliament Outreach visit P6/7 to talk to us about all sorts of things to do with the Scottish Parliament.

We learned about the building, about MSPs and about its history. We also held an election with ballot papers and everything. We then had a debate to see if we could pass a law – and we did. The class decided to ban smoking altogether!

We all found out lots of things and had a great time. Thanks Iain!!
