Participate! P4-7 Assembly 26.1.18


Published on

On Friday 26th January we celebrated the many ways pupils are already participating and making their voices heard.

P6 pupils Eve and Hannah told everyone about their recent visit to the 'Burns Unbroke' Exhibition at Summerhall, including an ‘Oor Rabbie’ performance by Andy Cannon. This was a follow up to two wonderful art workshops with the artist Ciara Veronica Dunne where the class explored the poem Tam O’Shanter, chose favourite scenes from the poem and used Indian ink to create final masterpieces now on display at Summerhall. Huge congratulations to James H, Hugo and Oscar whose recreation of Alloway Kirk was chosen as the winning design for a Burns Unbroke tote bag. A wonderful opportunity to pARTicipate in one of the first Year of Young People events.

P7 Grange Captains Flora, Iain, Maisie and David explained their plans for a House Quiz and P6 pupil Dylan encouraged everyone to take part in the RSPB Big Garden Watch at the weekend. P7 pupil Camille explained her idea for creating Bug Hotels with the ECO Group. We are grateful for advice and encouragement from Anne O'Connell and Sarah Tolley organiser of the Meadows Community garden and head of community group "Greening our Street." P4 Fern and P7 Alejandro showed their new ECO Suggestion Boxes and siblings P5 Sam and P6 Eliza encouraged us to participate in forthcoming Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club events.

P7 pupils Isaac and Nils explained their Marathon in a Month idea to raise awareness of Asthma UK which will be supported by PE Specialist Mrs Walker at P7.

Pupil Council members were at Blackwell's Bookshop with Ms French today and will report back on their suggestions for purchases. P7 pupil Niamh shared examples of books which provide strong female role models and will also contribute her ideas for future book purchases at school.

Sports Captains congratulated the P7 Basketball Team on their recent win in the first round of the Hope Trust Basketball Cup and presented certificates. Thank you to PE Specialist Mrs Walker for organising and running the event and to Mrs Tariq for accompanying the team.

Everyone was encouraged to continue to 'Participate! 'and 'Have a Goal' this session, sharing and celebrating achievements with us.

  22. 22. Skipper has found that these ten tools help him to cope with the river of life
  23. 23. Building Resilience For as long as Skipper can remember, he has wanted to write his very own book. He decides to set himself a goal to write a book about his sailing adventures. He is really excited about it. Skipper sets himself a goal

  27. 27. Building Resilience Failures and mistakes are okay because: 1. They are normal and happen to everyone. 2. They can give us the chance to reflect on whether we are on the right path. 3. They give us the opportunity to try a creative new way or new idea. Learning to overcome setback helps us to cope with future ones What would I do differently?
  28. 28. Building Resilience One of the adventures that Skipper has been writing about was about the time he was on the river of life and there was a storm that blew him off track. Skipper remembers a time he dealt with failure before Can you remember how he was able to cope with this?
  29. 29. Building Resilience Once Skipper remembered he had dealt with setbacks before, he had the confidence that he could do so again. He realised he needed to take his friend’s advice on board if he wanted to make the book better. Keep working towards your goal Every challenge we successfully overcome strengthens our confidence to confront future ones.
  30. 30. Building Resilience It is important to celebrate achievements
  31. 31. Building Resilience Skipper finished his book and felt proud to hear that his stories would be shared with others. Skipper achieved his goal
  32. 32. Building Resilience When we reach our goal, take time to enjoy the feeling of achievement and thank those that helped you. Think about what skills you learned along the way. Celebrate your achievement When was the last time you felt proud of someone or something?
  33. 33. Building Resilience We have learned that… Having goals helps our health and wellbeing, motivates us and helps us to Be Resilient.
  34. 34. Have you set your goals? Aim high. Let your ambition fly!
  35. 35. Keep recording progress towards your goals in eJASS
