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.
Primary 1s enjoyed a Spring scavenger hunt in the playground and then they wrote about it. We made chocolate nests, did Spring finger painting and played duck, duck goose in the playground. Have a great holiday everyone 😊
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
