Parenting Smart

Place2Be has launched Parenting Smart a new website resource for parents and carers of 4-11 year olds. A Place2Be survey of 962 parents found that around half (52%) of parents of 4-11 year-olds have felt isolated during the pandemic, and almost half (48%) of parents felt they would have benefitted from advice about how to manage their children’s behaviour during this time. Place2Be developed Parenting Smart to help parents and carers support their children’s mental health, and manage their behaviour. It is completely free to use and access. Developed by Place2Be’s parenting experts, the site is full of tips and advice on a range of topics including transition to secondary school, meltdown and sleep difficulties.

Our Community, Our World and Our Harvest Assembly

In our topic Our Community, Our world we have compared Scotland and China and looked at things that are the same and things that are different. We researched the climate, population, capital city, festivals, foods, flags and famous people in China. We have also learned about our local shops. When we did that we went on a walk around our local areas. We also looked at food banks and how they help people. We talked about who might use them and why they might use them and what would be good to donate. We sent letters to the local shops to ask them to donate food to the local Food bank and we designed posters to put up in Scotmid to tell people that the Food bank is running. We have also looked at 3 of the sustaianable goals. Number 1 no poverty, number 2 Zero hunger and number 10 reduced inequalities. 

At our Harvest Assembly we learned about the work Community for Food does and collected food for the Community for Food food bank. Mrs Brown who runs the food bank came to school to pick up our donations.

MAGNIFICENT MASKS AT CURRIE CARNIVAL

Have you recently been wondering what Currie Primary have been doing? Well read on to find out! 

P5/6, P5a and P5b have been hard at work designing amazing masks based on Carnival. Here is the process:

1.First the pupils researched some of these bold, colourful and flamboyant masks and designs.

2.Next they got some A3 paper and added some materials and pictures for inspiration. These are called mood boards.

3.After that the students designed plans of their creative masks.

4.Then they took regular eye masks and decided they were too flimsy, so they added Modroc to them. Modroc is a specific fabric that you dip in water and smooth down on card and when it dries it is as hard as rock. 

5.When the Modroc was dry. They painted them bold, bright and beautiful colours.

6. Finally they added feathers, glitter and pom-poms.

To conclude the unit, they had a colourful parade to exhibit their beautiful carnival themed masks. “I was astounded at the creativity and imagination of all the pupils!” said Sarah Sharpe. (P5/6 class teacher.) It is clear that it was fun for all!
