This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is Nature.
You may have noticed that our Parent Council have been busy weeding and tidying our planters at the back of the school. Mr Jessop and Mr Mouat, the Janitor, have also started work on our new planters ready for every class to plant out seeds for next session. In addition Mrs Dimeck has been doing outdoor learning with classes across the school, classes have been outside for PE and fitness, bikeability and fun! Last week Primary 2 were the proud winners of a play session with our new blocks – who will it be this week?
Our Equalities Group are challenging each class to design and build their own Worry Monster. There are lots of boxes and cardboard outside my office for this purpose. I am looking forward to seeing the results. These will be checked regularly and we will offer every support we can.
I hope you like this week’s assembly. You might notice my friend here, the Edinburgh Bear. He is a friendly chap. We’ll be sending out more information about the move from nursery to school and our Primary 5 buddies will be busy too!
Please remember that children should come to school with a jacket, as the last few days have shown – here in Scotland we certainly get all four seasons in one day! Take care, Mrs Jessop https://youtu.be/If1-Ncts3e4
Your homework challenge for the next 2 weeks is to create something related to the CELTS.
Please use any resources you find around your house or outside and recycle them into something the Celts may have used. Please use any materials you would usually recycle. This is a cost free exercise.
Please make sure you check wit a grown up before you start your project.
Maybe you would like to make a tool from IRON AGE. You might like to make an ornament or jewellery.
Here are some ideas made from paper, plastic and cardboard:
