Published on

Sciennes is a Dyslexia Friendly school. On Friday 3rd November we featured Dyslexia Awareness in both P1-3 and P4-7 Assemblies. Ms Kennedy and Miss Thistlethwaite have been working with groups of dyslexic pupils who will deliver year group presentations to P4-P7 next week, in Dyslexia Awareness Week. A group of P7 pupils addressed the P1-3 Assembly and P7 pupil Catherine will lead distribution of blue ribbons next week. Video clips were shown to help explain dyslexia and develop positive attitudes towards having dyslexia and also towards dyslexic pupils who have to work hard to overcome associated challenges.

P7 pupils will be selling poppies next week and Mr Howie explained the significance of this.

Pupils were encouraged to have safe and happy celebrations on Bonfire Night.
