If you or your child receives a positive test for Covid 19 during the holiday period you should call the City of Edinburgh contact centre on 0131 200 2000 to make them aware. The management of all positive tests will be handled by a central team over the holiday period.
The Clan Chiefs are hard at work judging the entries to the Easter Egg contest, which will be announced later today.
We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries this year, especially given we weren’t able again to have a judging in school thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully next year we can do that again, especially given the amazing work by all entrants this year.
This term we have been able to start our Roots of Empathy lessons, the children have been learning how to understand other people’s feelings and their own. The program has been modified so that the children get to know our Roots of Empathy family: baby Alan and mum Jordan through videos and photographs. The lessons are delivered by instructor Mrs Harris-Toner and our ‘little teacher’ is baby Alan. The children have really enjoyed getting to know baby Alan and hear his news. The children have shared their experiences of lock down through their artwork and the roles they have at home and in school. Last week the children had lots of fun learning about and demonstrating how baby Alan uses body language to communicate his feelings. For more information please ask Mrs Harris-Toner, Mrs McDermot and Miss McArthur. Also check out http://www.rootsofempathy.org
We have been learning all about spring and enjoying observing the changes around us. The boys and girls enjoyed a Spring treasure hunt this week and they discovered lots of exciting insects and flowers in our playground!
We had a wonderful day celebrating all things book related. All children enjoyed an interactive sorry and rhyme session with Christine at Fountainbridge Library and we took time to think about our favourite book and why we like it. We extended our library and spent the day exploring new texts of different genres.
