No Pens Day Wednesday

Today as part of our Dyslexia Friendly Schools journey, the whole school was involved in NO PENS DAY WEDNESDAY.  This is a national speaking and listening event which  encourages exciting classroom discussion.  Check out the blog for class photos.

No Pens Day in P6A

Primary 6A have had a very productive day during their No Pens Wednesday. The class worked hard and participated fully in talking and listening activities, maths using laptops, drama work portraying John Muir’s life and nature art work where the children studied the leaves, colours, textures to create a new picture.

Joe commented, ‘ Today I liked the fact that we could just put our pencils down and get up instead and be more active in our learning. My favourite bit was using my imagination to create my leaf ladybug.’

Phoebe explained, ‘Sometimes today I wanted to write things down but instead I had to talk and explain myself.’
