Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing.
Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.
Primary 2, Miss Grant and Mrs Smith would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents and carers who made it along to share in the excitement of the grand opening of the Clock Shop yesterday. It was a fantastic event for the P2s, who have been working so hard on their clocks for the last few weeks. Here are lots of lovely photos from our Clock Shop journey.
P2 had a fantastic afternoon with Emily Dodd at the library. We were delighted to see so many parents and Carers attend too. Emily Dodd told us about Scottish wildlife. A huge thank you to Craigmillar Library, Craigmillar Literacy Trust, Emily Dodd and of course our parent/Carer partners for supporting this amazing event. We had lots of fun!
After a day of enjoying the Clockshop and making some lovely clock towers on Wednesday, Primary 2, Mrs Smith and Miss Grant were HORRIFIED to come in this morning to find our Clockshop destroyed and the top secret designs from Miss Timely GONE! We think it was maybe a hungry fox that got in through the window…a boot was found with fox teeth marks in the bottom in the playground….we are still investigating!
Today we worked hard to come up with some new designs for the door to the Clockshop and in the next few weeks, we are going to work together to create some brand new clock designs for Miss Timely.
Keep your eyes peeled for more updates…
P2 had a special visit from Changeworks this week. On Monday, we learned all about which rubbish we can recycle and why it is important for looking after our animals and our planet. We also made medallions by reusing old CDs and confetti – two things that cannot be recycled.
On Tuesday, we started to clear up our playground by doing a litter pick.
Thanks Changeworks, for making us Zero Waste Heroes!
