Our teachers have been linking their interdisciplinary topics to the rights of the child.  Here are some of the plans in store:

P2 – The Senses – the Government’s obligations to children who are mentally or physically disabled (article 23)

P3 – James and the Giant Peach (Literacy) – the Government’s obligations to protect children against maltreatment and abuse (article 19) and Classification and Minibeasts – Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, and the environment (article 29)

P4 – Weather -the right to information from national and international mass media (article 17) and Financial Education – the child’s right to a standard of living adequate for the child’s physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development (article 27)

P5 – John Muir – The right to life (article 6) and the child’s right to an education (article 28)

P7 – Keeping Myself Safe – All adults should do what is best for you (article 3) and The Divided City (Literacy) – the rights of children belonging to ethnic, religious or linguistic minority groups

Health Focus

photoThe whole school has taken part in a two week health focus entitled “Looking After Me”.

Health Focus

There have been a wide selection of activities including: art therapy, heartstart, touch rugby, Upbeat Dance, visit from an occupational therapist, input on ADHD and a mixed stage learning afternoon working co-operatively.

Individual classes supplemented this work in class and carried out activities on hygiene, keeping safe and discussing our own individual selling points to mention but a few.  And there has been an attempt by teachers to take learning outdoors too.

We hope the children enjoyed participating.
