Our Week in Room 20

November 12, 2021 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

This week, our P5 pupils took part in a workshop called ‘Boomerang’ led by our school chaplaincy team. They had a great time learning about resilience and creating their own ‘Resilience Monsters.’ Here’s what they had to say about the workshop:

“It was all about resilience and bouncing back from things that happen and things that worry us.” Connor

“No matter how much something might go wrong, you can get through it if you keep moving.” Nico

“We made wee eggs (Resilience Monsters) that had to stay upright. They were allowed to wobble but you had to try and keep them balanced. [The message] was about knowing that its okay to wobble and if you fall over, you can get back up again.” Calan


We also marked Remembrance Day this week by participating in the minute silence across the school and by studying the poem In Flanders Fields by John McRae. We created these beautiful pieces of art work by tea-staining a copy of the poem and then using watercolours to paint poppies over the top. We think they look very effective and help to commemorate those lost in the war.

🦺 Be Bright Day – Friday 26th November 🔦

November 12, 2021 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Friday 26th November, we are holding a ‘Be Bright’ day to raise awareness for staying ‘safe and seen’ now that the nights (and afternoons!) are getting darker. The children should wear the brightest clothes that they have and this can include reflective items. The clothes don’t even need to match! The wackier & brighter the better as we are holding a competition for the best and brightest dressed pupil from each class. The winners will win ‘Be Bright’ goodies and a certificate.

We can’t wait to see you all ‘wearing it bright!’
