UNICEF Outright Campaign

As part of our Health and Well being topic this term P6/7 have taken part in UNICEF’s Outright campaign to speak up for the rights of refugees. World Children’s day gives children the opportunity to speak up and have a voice and this year we want to help change the family reunion law. As it stands currently the UK Government doesn’t recognise a brother, aunt, uncle or a grandparent as family – at least not if you are a refugee. Under the current laws, children must reach Europe to be able to reunite with older siblings, aunts and uncles, and grandparents waiting for them in the UK. Children fleeing war and persecution shouldn’t have to make these needless, dangerous journeys across land and sea to be with their family in the UK. We are calling on the Home Secretary to fix the family reunion laws and help reunite refugee children with their family in the UK where they belong, based on their right.

So far we have made campaign posters, and our next step is to write a letter to our local MP. Here are some of the amazing campaign posters with important messages.

Badminton Champions

A big well done to our Badminton team from Uplawmoor.

We competed in the cluster challenge and won so then we went through to the East Renfrewshire Finals, in which we came 3rd out of 7. We are very pleased with the result and had a fabulous time!

STEM event and Glasgow Clyde College

We were very lucky to have the opportunity to attend a STEM event last week. At this event we had the chance to meet people who have jobs and careers in these subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and heard all about their journeys. Glasgow Clyde college had arranged some great workshops and we had a chance to attend 3. These workshops included:

Hydrogen Fuel cells – having a chance to see how these work and creating a circuit to make a fan go on.

Robots – getting to see behind the scenes on how to program a robot.

Apps – Alexander and Scott had the chance to make their own game, which was a version of the famous ‘Flappy Bird’.

Brick Layering and weaving.

During our lunch break we also had the chance to meet different exhibitors and ask them questions about their jobs and organisations. By the end of it we learnt that there are so many options out there for future job prospects, jobs we had never even thought about.

Ice Cream Parlour!

 Today we ran an ice cream parlour. In total we sold 60 ice creams and made £30. We made a profit of £10.80 and enjoyed it very much. The most popular ice cream was mint choc chip. We will run it again and will hopefully make more profit as this is going towards our leavers do.

“We had fun!”

Scones with Mrs Paterson

Ruby had told the class about Mrs Paterson’s scrumptious scones and thought it would be a great idea to get her in so that we can make them. So at the end of Maths week, Mrs Paterson kindly came in to our class to make scones with us. We had to use scales to measure the different ingredients. This was great fun and the scones turned out delicious. Thank you so much Mrs Paterson!

Maths week outdoor learning

For maths week Primary 6/7 went outdoors to find sticks and created their very own 3D shapes!

WW2 Homework projects

Primary 6/7 have worked very hard on their WW2 homework projects. They went away and picked their own subject to research and created models, PowerPoints, posters and drawings and presented them to the class. Everyone enjoyed doing this and we learnt many things from each other.

Ruby made a model of a Spitfire using a kitchen roll tube, kinder egg toy holder and a fish fingers box.

Ruby’s Spitfire!

Hamish made a poster about evacuation and what to pack in a suitcase.

Beth brought in a Spitfire gunner log.

Beth also brought in a ration book from WW2 time.

Mhairi’s great grandad made this for her grandad during WW2.

Mhairi also brought in medals that belonged to her great grandad.
