Anti-Bullying Week

P1, P1/2 and P2 have had a super week working together to learn about different areas of bullying.


We looked at what bullying means, we created floor maps to show our thinking.


We watched the film ‘Bunny New Girl’ to help us find bullying behaviours. Each class created floor maps to share our ideas and thoghts. We enjoyed making the bunny masks.


‘How To Fill a Bucket’

Miss Traill read us the story ‘How To Fill A Bucket’. It told us that everyone has a bucket and we discussed ways we could fill up the buckets. Here are some examples from the children.

  • “Tell someone you love them.”
  • “Give your Mum and Dad a hug.”
  • “Play with your friend.”
  • “Make a card for someone.”


On Wednesday we were learning about ‘Big Deal and Little Deal’ behaviours. We read the story ‘ A Bag of Worries’ and discussed things that made us feel worried. We realised that we are all different and some of us had different ‘Big Deal’ and ‘Little Deal’ lists. We will use these in class to help us cope with different behaviours.


We looked at different strategies to cope with bulylying behavours.

Have your WITS about you.

  • Walk away
  • Ignore them
  • Tell someone
  • Stop

We also thought about how to be a good friend. The children completed different stations to help think about this.

  • Station 1- Games
  • Station 2- What makes a good friend?
  • Station 3- Friendship Paper Chains


P2 Christmas Enterprise

Primary 2 have decided they would like to make ‘Sock Snowmen’ for the Christmas Fete. To start our project we worked in teams to create a business name. We spoke about what makes a good business name and what information needed to be included. Everyone agreed we needed the word snowmen in our name.

We shared our name ideas and then had a whole class vote.

The winner was…

‘The Snowy Snowmen Team’



P6 Cinema Trip


OUR P6 TRIP TO THE CINEMA by Sophie and Erin

We really liked our trip to the cinema to see TRON ,

It came out originally on the 21 October 1982 but we saw an updated version. The plot of TRON is When talented computer engineer Kevin Flynn finds out that Ed Dillinger an executive at his company, has been stealing his work, he tries to hack into the system. However, Flynn is transported into the digital world, where he has to face off against Dillinger’s computerized likeness, Sark, and the imposing Master Control Program. Aided by Tron and Yori Flynn becomes a freedom fighter for the oppressed programs of the grid.  We went to Eden Court cinema for this trip.

  • “I didn’t think that I would like it because it is science fiction but I actually liked it.” Erin
  • “I knew a few things about TRON because my mum saw it when she was little but she didn’t remember much.” Sophie
