On Wednesday, P2A went for a walk down to the village with Mrs Preacher and some very kind parent/ family helpers.
We saw lots of different types of houses that we had learned about on Monday, and we walked all the way down to The High street, where we found out what some of the buildings used to be used as. DId you know there used to be a cinema in South Queensferry? Ask us which building it is now!
It was a really fun afternoon, and we’d like to say a big thank you to the kind volutneers who accompanied us on our walk.
Last week we had a special visit from Steven, our Active Schools football coach. He gave us a taster of what to expect at the after school sessions, and we all had a chance to dribble a football round the pitch.
It was tricky keeping the ball under control, but we did a pretty good job… what do you think?
As we have settled back into school, we have been discussing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We worked in our table groups to decide whether some things were ‘wants’ or ‘needs’, we liked sorting the cards and trying to guess whether it was something we want or something we need. We really liked working in teams with the people on our table and we got to make a few more friends. Many of us were surprised to learn that you don’t actually need a mobile phone!
We had a class vote to decide the theme of our class charter, the winning theme was… STAR WARS!
We made a video intro to our Class Charter… just like Star Wars! You can see our ‘Rights Wars’ video below:
Rights Wars- Primary 2 Strike Back
We are very proud of our work on our class charter- we chose the rights that were most relevant to us, and discussed how we would respect those rights in school. We also discussed things that adults can do to help respect our rights too. Our signature to the class charter is our chosen Star Wars Character, coloured in by hand.
