NSPCC workshop

This morning, P6/7D took part in a thought-provoking workshop led by John from the NSPCC.  John and Miss MacDonald were both impressed by the pupils’ good listening skills and mature contributions to the discussions about abuse, neglect and different forms of bullying.

P6/7D will be doing more work on bullying next week and  during January.

World of Work 2

Thank you so much to all our parents & volunteers who gave up their time to come into school & be interviewed by P6/7 pupils as part of our World Of Work fortnight.  All pupils have worked collaboratively to research  their chosen STEAM career and created questions to  use in their interview.  After taking notes during the interview, pupils will then work on their own to create a digital presentation of their findings looking at skills used in their chosen careers.  This week we have interviewed  marine scientists, engineers, an optician, dental technologist, nurse, forester, STEM development manager,  food safety officer, sustainable textile producer & designer, woodland manager and electrician!  More photos to follow next week. World of work fortnight has been a great success!

 

Network Librarian visit

Primary 6/7 ~ Miss Mullin and Mrs James

On Wednesday morning, pupils in P5, P6 and P7 attended workshops with Jennifer Murdoch, our local Highlife Highland Network Librarian.

She helped the children to consider the reliability of different sources, using the example of a fictitious website about an island for dogs.  As the pupils read more deeply, they realised that all was not as it seemed!

We managed to take a quick picture of Jennifer at lunchtime, before she left to visit another school.

Jennifer will be back with us in the new year, to look at encyclopedias online.
