Helping your child cope with their emotions at home
At St. Fergus’ Primary, we adopt a whole school approach to emotions awareness and regulation called Emotion Works. Your child/children have had lots of input on this and should be aware of each cog and what it means.
Emotion Works helps your child to understand why they feel particular emotions and be able to relate these emotions to a trigger (cause) and find a way to calm down and self-regulate. Expectedly, with the current ongoing situation, everyone will be feeling a range of emotions on a daily basis. We hope this flier will be useful to you in helping to keep your child/children calm in what is an uncertain and strange time for us all. It will also promote positive continuity and a recognisable vocabulary since this is what we promote in St. Fergus’.

We have had a very busy World Book Day. This morning we went to see the library monitors who let us pick from a choice of 3 books and…. we get to keep them! After break, we joined up with Primary 2 and we got to listen to either Never Tickle a Tiger or The Dinosaur that Pooped the Princess. We then completed lots of fun tasks about these books. This afternoon, we visited Primary 7 and they read us The Hungry Caterpillar. We then worked together on a range of stations that they had created, such as colouring, a quiz and fruit tasting. We have had a wonderful day.
I liked guessing the fruit with P7. -Rachel
I thought the dinosaur story was so funny. -Arturo
I want to read my book.- Ula
Today we celebrated Pancake Day. We watched a video all about how to make a pancake and we were able to list the ingredients. We worked together as a class to come up with the first two steps in the recipe and then finished the task independently. Just before home time, we joined together with Primary 2 and we even got to eat a pancake.
Rachel- This is yummy.
Chanel- I love jam.
Arturo- I’d love to flip a pancake.
Olivia- It’s like in Miss P’s song.
The pupil council worked really hard to plan and organise this years Valentines Disco.
Rachel and Jay from P7 went shopping in Asda to get supplies.
Here are some pictures from the Disco.
This morning we had a very special visitor in primary 2. Jack taught us some Judo 🥋. He also taught us to say some words in Japanese as Judo comes from Japan 🇯🇵 .
Shae – I was excited to help Jack with some Judo moves.
Shae – It felt like I was doing a cartwheel.
Jackson – Judo is super fun.
Today we had our Scottish Open Morning and it was a huge success. We invited out families into our classroom and it was a fantastic turn out. We visited a range of Scottish themed work stations such as tartan making and Scottish food tasting. We then moved into the hall and performed our Scottish dance and songs. The feedback was excellent.
