Only One You

Dear Parents/Carers,
All of us here at Tweedmouth West are in the early stages of an exciting, inspirational project called 'Only One You'.
The project is based on the story 'Only One You' written by Linda Kranz.
This is a story about a deep love that is shared between parents and their child. Sharing wisdom from one generation to another is so important. This story which is full of positive affirmations will be used throughout the school year to talk about memories and life lessons with our children.
By visually seeing these simple thoughts, together with fun, lively characters, children will make a meaningful connection and understand that they, in their own way, can truly make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of those around them. It will give them the opportunity to celebrate their own uniqueness.
'Only One You' is illustrated with pictures of painted stones, so after we have read the book we will be making our own painted stones.
This is where we need your help. We would like you to help your child find a special stone (no bigger than the palm of their hand).
We are hoping that choosing the right stone for your child on the beach or in the garden will be a lovely, tactile activity, we hope your child will enjoy washing it with lots of soap and bubbles before bringing it into school.
We ask your child to bring their stone into school by Friday 18th October. During the week of Monday 21st October, each class will spend time decorating their special stone which will be made into a colourful display of over 140 stones to celebrate our uniqueness.
Many thanks in advance for your support with this project.
