Children as Human Rights Defenders Project

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.

P4 At Wagamama

P4 attended a food workshop at Wagamama.

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 Set the Scenes

P4 went outdoors to learn about how to create a setting for their stories. They worked in teams problem solving how to create an interesting setting and a story line for their characters.

They then took notes of interesting words to describe what they could see, hear, feel and smell.

Using these notes they wrote some sentences to describe their setting in an interesting way.

P4 Canopic Pics

P4 have been learning about Ancient Egypt, they requested to carry out the mummification process – we used apples instead!

As part of this process the Ancient Egyptians put the lungs, intestines, stomach and liver in canopic jars.

The pupils asked to make their own jars, for this we used clay.  In the lesson the pupils learnt about how and why the Ancient Egyptians used the canopic jars as well as how to work with clay. Next, the pupils will design their lids for the jars choosing from a baboon, human, jackal or falcon.

Joseph Coelho Visit

Scottish Book Trust Schools Event with Joseph Coelho

Thursday 22nd February

Joseph Coelho will be in school to see children in from P4-P7.

 

Joseph is a performance poet and playwright who is “a fresh new voice in children’s poetry”. He works tirelessly to dispel the view that poetry is “boring” with his fun and exciting poetry.

Following the event Joseph will sign copies of his books. If your child already owns copies please get them to bring them along to be signed.

Your child can also buy copies of Joseph Coelho’s books on the day (see attached letter for prices).

Children are under no obligation to buy books but if you would like them to we are able to accept cash and cheques (please make them out to Scottish Book Trust).
