It’s hard to believe we’re heading towards the end of our first term in P7. It’s been a busy one and the pupils have really embraced our Plastic Pollution Campaign. They have created amazing persuasive leaflets about our ‘Bubbles Beat Balloons’ campaign, some of which will be distributed to the congregation at church in Longniddry on Sunday. We have also been writing persuasive letters to supermarkets and our local MSP about single use plastics and our concerns about meeting our Global Goals targets.
Today will be our 3rd Headstrong Session, focusing on the importance of good mental health and discussing strategies to help when things go wrong. Thanks to the nursing team, the class are really enjoying this opportunity to discuss these vital and sometimes hard-hitting topics, in a safe environment with their peers.

Make it on the computer and send it to school. We’ll look at them in our writing lesson next week! Remember these success criteria:
Title; summary; statistics; subheadings and graphics.
