Building Resilience Sharing Assembly- Make a Difference

Mrs Mason and Mrs Honeyman got that warn fuzzy feeling as we listened to all the ways in which our children and families have made a difference as part of this terms Building Resilience learning.

Some of the ways they have made a difference include helping out at home, litter picking, planting a wildflower meadow, raising money for charity, building a bug hotel, recycling clothes and toys, looking after baby siblings and  writing a rap of ways to save the planet.

We also learned about the way that the staff team have made a difference by running the Edinburgh Marathon in three relay teams. They raised over £800  for Barnardos and Richmond Hope. Both of these charities work with children in our school and make a real difference to their lives.

P6 Camp Day 1

Day 1 at camp was a great success. Everyone arrived safely, and enjoyed settling into their dormitories with their friends. Mrs Mason paid them a surprise visit, and made sure everyone was settled and happy before heading back to school.

The children did a range of activities with the instructors in the afternoon (more pics to follow after camp) before some free time before dinner. Mrs Honeyman joined the children and staff for dinner, before games out on the field and in the woodland. The children took part in a range of games and particularly enjoyed a game of camouflage hide and seek in the woods.

Then it was back to the chalet for hot showers, PJs and supper. Mrs Clements surprised the children with another staff visit, and made a delicious supper of hot chocolate and cake. The children had time for indoor games with Miss Curran, Mrs Harris Toner and Mr Devine before heading off to bed.

The wet weather certainly did not dampen their enthusiasm!
