Be Resilient Unit 2 – Keep Connected

This term’s Be Resilient unit launches this week and is called “Keep Connected”.

Our launch assembly took place yesterday and a leaflet will be sent home by this week to give you more information on the topic.

There is also a digital copy of the Keep Connected Parent Carer Leaflet on this link.

Once again there will be a family (homework) task that we would ask you to support your child/children with.  Towards the end of the term the children will be invited to share the products of these family tasks at our Sharing Assembly, to celebrate, inform and inspire the other pupils.

P7b Going Outside and They May Be Some Time

P7 visited the National Library of Scotland this week to learn about Ernest Shackleton and his treacherous expedition to the Antarctic.  This ties in with our Health and Well-being focus of ‘Resilience.’

Our group leader Callum knew lots about the topic and was able to answer every question we had.  He gave us an opportunity to wander round the expedition, take photos and take part in some drama related to the background story.

The end result of this wonderful visit was a P7B silent movie starring US as Shackleton’s crew, heading off on ‘Endurance’ to the Antarctic, failing and then being finally rescued.  What a fantastic day we had!!
