Over the past week or so P6/7 have been very busy learning about Remembrance Day. We completed some poppy artwork, showcasing our understanding of mixing colours to create different shades of green and red. We also wrote poems titled ‘From The Battlefield I Can See…’. The class worked very hard on these poems and they produced some very thoughtful and emotive pieces of work. Well done everyone!
We have completed a number of activities as part of anti-bullying week and linking in with our health and well-being indicator for this month ‘included’. We listened to Jessie J’s song ‘Who’s Laughing Now’ and analysed the lyrics using our Emotion Works cogs. We were able to pick out triggers, behaviours and body sensations related to the bullying Jessie J experienced. We will be continuing our learning tomorrow by using the blue cog ‘regulation strategies’ to brainstorm ways of helping people cope with and overcome bullying. We will also be designing anti-bullying posters as part of a competition run by the Rights Respecting Forum.
The charity forum have decided to organise a ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ again this year. This will take place on Friday 13th December. This event is to support the charity – Save the Children and as such a £1 donation per family is suggested if possible. If your child doesn’t have a Christmas jumper please don’t worry, they can wear any Christmas clothes, accessories, or even a piece of tinsel. Thank you for your continued support.
