I hope you all had a wonderful Health Week, the weather was certainly with us! Please do continue to show me what you’re up to.
Today is ‘Say Something Nice‘ Day! Mrs Speedie could do with our help to get as many nice words from the whole school as she can!
“It would be lovely if you could find Happy Words in your home language and make posters, drawings, photos etc about your Happy Words. You can also tell us what the words mean in your home language and why they make you or others happy. It can be a compliment, or a word that reminds you of happy days, family times, lovely thoughts etc. You can use your home language, a language that you or anybody in your family speak or are learning, and of course you can also use English, Spanish or Gaelic words.“
My word is ‘iontach‘. It means ‘wonderful‘ in Irish. It reminds me of home as I might hear someone say: Tá sé iontach! – It is wonderful!
Our challenge today comes from Mrs Peoples. She needs us to help with some work for the new P1 pupils .
The nursery children have been encouraged to take part in the Edinburgh Bear Hunt as part of their transition work. One of the activities they are to complete is the Cosmic Kids yoga linked to the story – It would be great if the older boys and girls could join in too, you can find it here – bit.ly/EdiYogaBear Remember to share pictures with us!
We have been doing an acro balance class. (We will try to get a photo but it is hard to take pictures with Amelie balanced on me!) There is a book called Jack’s acrobatics by Rika Taeymans that has moves for a child and grown-up to do together.
