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.
