P3/4 Roots of Empathy

on .

P3/4 had their first visit from Lynette Wemyss who is the instructor for Roots of Empathy.  This programme teaches children about their own feelings and the feelings of others.  Once every three weeks, baby Matthew and his mum will visit the classroom and we will discuss feelings babies go through and compare them to our own feelings.  P3/4 are very much looking forward to meeting baby Matthew and have worked on lots of questions to ask his mum.  The Roots of Empathy Programme began in Canada 10 years ago and is recognised internationally.  Through this programme, thousands of children are learning respect and care for one another.

Happy Halloween

on .

Many classes have been taking part in some terrifying tasks this week.  P3/4 have been writing spooky stories and reading them to each other in their darkened classroom, lit only by the eerie flickering candlelight from two carved pumpkins.  P5/6 have been designing pumpkin expressions and creating these using black and orange craft paper and P6/7 have read poems and written bone-chilling descriptions of a mysterious deserted house by the sea.  Mrs Mitchell's class made 3D pumpkins and Mrs Macleod's P4/5 class did some work with spooky verbs.  GMU1-3 were busy solving halloween puzzles and scoffed halloween cakes.
