Good Morning Primary 1!

I hope you are all well and are enjoying getting involved in some of the home learning activities this week.

This week UNICEF’s Rights Respecting School’s article of the week is Article 15 – Freedom of Association. Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights. What is needed for you to enjoy the right to get together and join up with other children? (For example clubs, organisations, safe places etc.)

Look at the following pictures: What is happening here? What rights are being shown here? Talk to an adult about all of your ideas!


Activity Time!

Choose one of the following activities to explore today to help you stay in touch with other children during these challenging times:

  1. Make a list of 5 children that you would like to get in contact with. Write them a letter or video call them this week to find out how their week has been.
  2. Think about a group or club you are part of. Create a poster or leaflet to encourage other people to join. Make sure to list all of the reasons why it is a good idea to join this group.
  3. Imagine you are meeting a new child for the first time – it could be in a club or in your class. Make a list of  questions you would like to find out to get to know them. What would you tell them about yourself?
  4. The word ‘association’ is interesting. You have perhaps heard of the Football Association (FA) or the Automobile Association (AA) Look up the meaning of ASSOCIATION and explain to somebody in your home what it means.
  5. Think of your favourite places to meet up with other young people. What makes for a place good for children/young people to get together?

We can’t wait to share some examples of your work on the school blog!

Thank you for continuing to share all of your hard work with us on the Learning Journals!
