P2/3 Learning Assembly

In our topic we have leaned the difference between fact and opinion. An opinion is a statement that tells what someone thinks while a fact is a true statement. We created a rap song to show our understanding about fact and opinion. We wrote the lyrics and we decided about the dance movements.

 Moreover, this term we learned to debate and support our opinion using powerful arguments. Finally, in our topic we have learned the difference between a ‘want’ and a ‘need’. Wants are things people would like to have. Needs, on the other hand are things people must have to live. Children’s rights are needs. Everyone should respect children’s rights.

Everyone is welcome to come along on Thursday to have a look at what the pupils have been doing!  You are also welcome to have a refreshment during the Easter Treasure Hunt…  (I wonder if it will be snowing like it was last year?)
