Lucy’s Blue Day – Author Visit

This afternoon all of the children in the school and nursery enjoyed a visit from author Chris Duke. He wrote ‘Lucy’s Blue Day’, a story focusing on children’s mental health. He read his big book to the children, discussed different feelings and emotions and explained that sometimes it’s ok not to be ok. He also encouraged the children to talk to others about how they are feeling.

Primary 3/4 enjoyed learning enterprise skills with Ollie the enterprising octopus last term. We focused on communication skills by doing radio and TV adverts and engaged in role-play, selling a chocolate bar to our classmates!

Another aspect of our learning was to design an Ollie toy, here are our finished products!

‘Lucy’s Blue Day’ by Chris Duke – Author Visit

This year, as part of our school improvement plan, we are continuing to focus on the health and wellbeing of all our pupils.

‘Lucy’s Blue Day’ is a story book which focuses on children’s mental health. It was written by a Scottish dad called Chris Duke. The story is about a little girl called Lucy with magical hair. It changes colour to reflect how she feels: yellow when she’s happy; purple when she’s excited and red when she’s angry. One day she wakes up and her hair has turned blue; a new colour she’s never felt before. The book helps children to understand that sometimes it’s ok not to be ok!

We are pleased to announce that Chris will be visiting our school on Wednesday 23rd October. He will be delivering assemblies to all of our primary and nursery children. If anyone would like to buy the book (or any other resources) our school has been offered a 20% discount. Please find the website details and discount code below. Chris will bring any pre-orders with him when he comes to our school on 23rd October.

Thanks for your continued support.
