SEAL Support and Information Sharing for Families


It was great to see so many parents and carers at the information session on Wednesday 6th November. I hope you found it helpful and you left with lots of ideas about how to support and encourage your child at home.

Even if you were unable to attend, I hope you might get some ideas about some activities and games useful to consolidate learning from these pictures of ideas we talked about on the day!

Please don’t hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher or Ms.Brunner if you have any questions or concerns.

Support with homework in school is available at a drop in session on Wednesday lunchtimes and at Canongate Youth Project fro P3 – P7 on Wednesday evenings.

Please let us know if you would like other support and information sessions for maths or any other area of the curriculum!

RSHP and Anti-Bullying Week

Dear Parents and Carers,

Primary 2, along with the rest of the school, will be looking at aspects of RSHP this term and as part of Anti-bullying week we will be focusing on Respect for others and the importance of being kind.

Over the course of the year, we intend to cover:

  • What makes them unique
  • Families, and how all our families are different
  • The different adults who might care for children – like teachers, support staff in
    school or medical staff
  • Making and having friends
  • Respect for others and the importance of being kind
  • Making choices and decisions
  • Looking after their body and keeping clean
  • What behaviour is okay in public and what is okay in private (for example pulling
    pants up before leaving the bathroom)
  • Making and having friends

You have already received by email a summary of the first level programme and can access the website from home:, at any time to view all the materials and information.

October: Seasonal Art and Topic Work

We have been watching out for leaves this month as the weather has been getting colder. Using some of the early leaf-fall we collected, we made some pieces of art using the ‘rubbing’ technique and using oil pastels and colour pencils. We are continuing to watch out for the changing colours of the leaves on the trees as winter approaches!

We have also been working hard in our ‘Castles’ topic – creating own own characters who live in a castle. These are some of our initial designs where we were thinking about who they were, what they looked like and already people are thinking about the castle their character lives in! We will be moving on to making our own castles with cardboard in the coming weeks so stay tuned!
