Pam Watson visit

October 8, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on Pam Watson visit

Pam came in to teach UNA pupils how to provide gentle exercise to music for elderly people.  This is to support an event that UNA children will run after the holidays. The children were taught about the needs and abilities of the people they would be working with.  Music, warm up, main sessions and cool down was explained.  The children were able to understand the measures they needed to incorporate in order to keep their elderly members safe during exercise.  They fully understood the need for exercises that support independence in the elderly.  The children will learn about International Day for Older Persons and run this event.  Rotary members will escort elderly members from the Forres area by bus to join us on Thursday 31st October for our active event.

International Day of Peace 2019

September 20, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on International Day of Peace 2019

Today was a great success!  Once again, the children were able to deliver an important message, this time about International Day of Peace.  Each business group was involved in learning to say ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ in a range of languages, sang our unique Alves Primary Rights Respecting song, learnt a Peace Dance, made a climate action banner and an atmosphere blanket with the support of community members. We had perfect weather for the Peace Day ceremony this afternoon. A special thank you to all parents and guests who came along to support us today.

P1/2 Campaign against PLASTIC

June 20, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on P1/2 Campaign against PLASTIC

After discussing and watching a BBC programme, War on Plastic, P1/2 we’re unhappy to learn that baby wipes are 80% plastic.  Also, they did not realise how much micro-plastic litter there was on land, sea and in the sky!  They were very concerned for the future and felt they needed to let others know about this.  The children hadn’t really thought about the sheer quantity of plastic within each household and what happens to it after we are finished with it.  Again they were shocked to see that Malaysia was an illegal dumping ground for much of our rubbish.  Such a huge concept to grab for such little people but boy did they feel ready to make a change in their own lives after watching this. #inspiredtoreduceplasticuse
