World Thinking Day is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout and Guide Movement. It is a day for all Guides and Scouts to think of each other and to celebrate being part of an international movement. World Thinking Day remains one of the most important dates in the guiding calendar, and every year the theme of the event encourages members to think about the big issues affecting them and their global community. This year the theme is leadership.
On February 22nd, we would like to encourage all children involved in Guide and Scout organisations to wear their uniform to celebrate this special day.
A big well done to this week’s Star Writers!!
Last week Primary 2 made stick dogs. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking after them and they certainly got lots of exercise in the playground. Today the children wrote all about their new pets. They were able to use lots of interesting adjectives to describe their dogs appearance and personality.
In Primary 1A our star of the week is Emma! Emma was so caring and supportive of her friends during our UniCef flood simulation on Thursday. She was reassuring those around her and offering her help and encoruagement. It was absolutely wonderful to see and she helped put her classmates at ease.
Well done Emma for being such a caring and kind friend!
Have a lovely long weekend and I hope you all get up to lots things that make you smile! 🙂
See you on all bright eyed and bushy tailed on Thursday!
Miss Munro 🙂
Thank you for the support today. We have raised about £208. The amount and quality of the baking was fantastic – plenty to tempt and feed everyone. The stalls went well and we all shared our talents and skills. We can cost out our Edinburgh trip as we include the Disco money with today’s amount.
Have a lovely long weekend!
THANK YOU for everyone’s amazing support today. We have raised in the region of £ 208. We had lots of fun and appreciated the donations of delicious baking.
We were very proud of our class today. They dealt with the UNICEF emergency simulation event in a responsible, calm, respectful and cooperative manner.
We had a “debrief” after break and many of the pupils expressed feeling “annoyed” and that we they couldn’t trust us. We understood their emotions and hoped that the positive way in which they handled themselves proved to them that the experience was worthwhile. We were supported by Zoe, a UNICEF representative, who came into the class to work with us.
We spent some time reflecting on the situations of children around the world whose rights are denied for months and years due to disaster situation not just for 1.5 hours.
We were privileged to have been offered this experience as a trial school (only 1 other school has tried it out) and trust that the event will have been worthwhile.
