Asthma: Week 35 25 – 31 August – A Guide for Patients/Carers

Rise in Asthma Attacks

Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?

Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital. 

Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.

Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.

P4-7 Sky Academy Trip

On Tuesday 1st of October P4-7 went on a trip to Sky Academy Studios, we watched an introduction for what we would be doing .We were set the task of making a short trailer for a film where someone had lost their wallet, we were put into three teams/groups. In my team there was: me ,Poppy, Katie ,Reece ,Dair and Angus.

Katie was the actress, Poppy was the producer, Reece was the director, Dair was the editor, Angus was the special effects and I was the cinematographer .

After that we got to watch them all in a special cinema room. They were all really good . When we had done all that, the teacher was handed some USB wrist bands. We got to keep the lanyards as well, we had our lunch then went home.

6/7 Rugby training

For the last few weeks primary 6 and 7 have been having Michael from Ross High to do rugby with us. The first week we were getting taught how to use the tags and belts  so we put on the Velcro belts  and we put the Velcro tags on and we had a game of sharks and fishes. The rules are the fish is running with the ball and the shark is trying to get the tags. Then we were tackling the tackle bags.

 

This week we were doing a passing game and we had to be in a space and the first team to get five passes got a point and then we did a Velcro game again.

 

 

I think this is great fun because I like playing it with my friends.
