Anti-Bullying Road Map

During Anti-Bullying week LCC2 discussed Scotland’s definition of what bullying is:

‘Bullying is both behaviour and impact; the impact is on a person’s capacity to feel in control of themselves. This is what we term as their sense of ‘agency’. Bullying takes place in the context of relationships; it is behaviour that can make people feel hurt, threatened, frightened, and left out. This behaviour happens face to face and online.’ (respectme, 2015)

LCC2 talked about who they would go to for support if they were being bullied. They created this poster of their support network.

Road Safety Week

Hello, we are the Junior Road Safety Officers. We need your help! We are trying to spread awareness about cycle safety and wearing helmets.

We have created a class challenge for you to take part in. There are four parts, can you complete them all? This will be discussed at assembly on Thursday 19th November. You have one week to complete the tasks. We wonder who will win the prizes… Good luck!

Black History Month in LCC

LCC1 and LCC2 have created these amazing posters for Black History Month.

LCC1 discussed themes of equality and justice and created this striking poster about the Black Lives Matter movement.

LCC2 went on a walking tour of Old Edinburgh to look at paintings, poetry and photography created in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. They then looked at art by Ayo Adedeji and created their own versions in his style.

Well done LCC1 and LCC2!
