Poet Joseph Coelho Visits Castleview!

Posted on

He’s a poet, and he DOES know it!

P4-7 really enjoyed listening to Mr Coelho talking about his poems and teaching us more about similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, repetition, alliteration and rhyme.

He even signed a few books for our school.

Thank you to the Scottish Book Trust for organising the visit.

P 4 Citizenship Week Part 2

Posted on Updated on

We’ve continued our learning about good citizenship with a visit from the SPCA. We learned about animals needing help and how the SPCA rescue the animals. Importantly, if we see an animal needing help we need to tell an adult and then they’ll help us contact the SPCA.

Today is our UNICEF’s Day Of Change. We’ve dressed up as people in our community who help the community.







P4 Citizenship week Part 1

Posted on Updated on

First thing Monday morning P4 really enjoyed working with PC Lily, and Mark, Dave and Pam from the Community Safety Team thinking about,  ‘The City They See.’ They focused on how to deal with and prevent anti-social behaviour. P4 were shocked to find out it costs £500 per piece of graffiti to remove it!

Their learning also linked to Rights Respecting Schools, as they thought about which rights they have that anti social behaviour affected.

P4 had prepared questions such as: what benefits do you get, as well as getting paid?


Tuesday P4 thoroughly enjoyed finding about working at Dynamic Earth! I think quite a few pupils fancy being Education Officers now!
