Last school year, as part of the Children as Human Rights Defenders project, which leds up to the participation of Members of Children’s Parliament in the UN Day of General Discussion 2018, P5 (then P4) took part in a children’s right workshop. Many of these happened across Scotland.
Thanks to Children’s Parliament for organising and sharing the video of this event.
They learnt how Wagamama prepared food and drinks and had a tour of the whole restaurant to learn about health and safety when working with food. They also got to learn about and experience how to make healthy food and drink. They liked the tasting part most of all!
In class pupils will be using all they learnt to create leaflets for how to prepare food safely at Wagamamas.
P4 asked to share their learning with the school, they were enthusiastic about their topic and learnt a lot of interesting facts and they wanted to inspire others to learn about the Egyptians also. They decided to create a museum and used their visit to the museum to help plan every aspect of the day themselves. I was very impressed about their careful consideration as to how to encourage people to explore the exhibits as well as have fun while learning.
It was a very successful day and we would like to thank all the classes and parents/carers who visited on the day. To celebrate the end of the topic the pupils wrapped some volunteers up as mummies!
