Join Buddy and Special Guests at the NSPCC’s ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ Assembly

https://www.facebook.com/nspcc/?utm_source=Virtual-Assembly&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_campaign=202005_SOSS

Join Ant and Dec, David Walliams, and Sally from the NSPCC’s Schools Service for a special assembly.  Featuring highlights from the hugely popular Speak out Stay safe programme, the assembly will help children understand what’s going on, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it.

We know that many children are struggling with increased anxiety because of the coronavirus pandemic – whether they’re missing friends, stressed about schoolwork or concerned about their family’s safety. And for parents and carers, it can be tough to start a conversation about these worries.

This assembly will help children understand the huge changes in their lives. There will even be a Q&A session with Vicky Ford MP, Minister for Children and Families, featuring questions from children.

Life Skills: Skills for Learning, Life & Work

‘So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.’ (Dr. Seuss)

They might not move mountains just yet but by following these Life Skills, it will be a stepping stone on their route to success!  See how many life skills your child/ren manages over the Easter Break.

 

Winter Ready 2017-18

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the Council’s Winter Ready procedures we have set up a section on the Blog under the page ‘Winter Ready.’  This has a selection of ideas which you can use with the children if the weather is severe enough to prevent the schools from opening. Many of the activities require little in the way of resources but encourage the children to use their imagination, be active and, most of all, enjoy themselves in the snow – many of which did so today!

 There is more information about Winter Ready on the council web page at http://www.westlothian.gov.uk/winter which gives greater detail about how you can keep up to date with the latest news.
