Good morning Primary 1! Happy Jeudi!

We hope that you are still enjoying learning from home and that you are still finding lots of time to play, relax and enjoy time with your family.

Our school is currently working towards getting the Gold Rights Respecting School Award. UNICEF have provided a set of remote learning activities that you can access at home to encourage children to learn about their rights in fun engaging ways. This week they are focusing on Article 12 – Respect for the views of the child. This article is particularly important right now when so many of the mechanisms for children’s voice to be heard are absent during this crisis. The activities related to ‘Respecting Children’s Views’ can be found below. Can you pick one of the tasks to complete and post your work on to the Learning Journals? We would love to see some examples of your work!

You can also access the full document of activities related to the Article of the Week below:

If you are interested, last week’s pack on ‘Article 24 – The Right to Healthcare’ is still available online. Please share any work on the RRSA facebook community group, or on Twitter under the hashtag #RRSA.

If you would like to go further you can get involved in the Unicef campaign to promote the voices and needs of children in lockdown. Unicef have produced a report into the risks to children during this crisis and our Youth Advisory Board have written an open letter asking the UK Government to directly address children in a special coronavirus broadcast. If you want to help you can add your name to the letter by accessing the following link:

Thank you for your continued support,

Primary 1 teachers
