Equality and Diversity

We’ve been continuing our work around our school values and Equality and Diversity texts.  Over the last few weeks, each class has heard the story of the Invisible Boy.  We’ve discussed how these relate to our school values of EMPATHY and FRIENDSHIP.  These relate to the Health and Wellbeing curriculum (specifically those labelled 05a, 08a and 10a) Click on the underlined curricular areas for more information.

P6/7 completed heart charts and word clouds related to the themes of Empathy, Friendship and feeling Included.  This included aspects of Technologies – 01a

P2/3 considered how they could be kind friends and made a friendship tree.

P4/5 considered how to show empathy you have to put yourselves in others shoes.  They thought about the actions Justin and Brian did to show empathy and friendship.

P1/2 listened to story and discussed how Justin helped Brian to not be invisible any more. (Listening and Talking 07a)

P5/6 will look at this story following the Easter break.

McRobert Cup Stars

A huge well done to all our runners in the McRobert Cup today…Dylan, Sophie, Katie, Thomas, Felix, Alfie, Iona, Constanza, Jacob, Shannon, Deklan, Sam and Brandon.  They all ran superbly in what was a very cold wind.  The results were superb with many finishing in the top quarter of the runners.  A special well done to Dylan who came 3rd overall out of 110 runners and to the P6/7 Boys team who were 3rd team winners.  A big thank you to Sarah Tree for the coaching and supporting and to all parents who came to help today.

Request

Mr Macleod is looking for baby dolls (not barbies but, play dolls) for his hospital and house imaginative play areas.  If you have any that you are no longer using please could you pass them into the office.

A reminder that we are also looking for small items to make up a baby and toddler box that would provide some entertainment for our younger members at meetings.

Many thanks
