Right of the Fortnight – The Right to Play and Rest

Article 31 of the UNCRC states that all children and young people under the age of 18 have the right to play and rest. Recently at a whole school assembly, we discussed how we ensure that we are respecting one another’s rights whilst enjoying our own. For this ‘Right of the Fortnight’ it would be great if you could have a go at creating your own poster display of how we can make sure we are respecting one another’s right to play and rest whilst enjoying the right ourselves.

We all have class charters which help us understand how we can access our right to an education whilst respecting everyone else’s right to learn. Therefore it would be great if we had a playground charter too. Hopefully we can use the ideas from any posters about Article 31 to create a playground charter that we can all agree on.

Confident Individuals at Morningside

At assembly on Friday Confident Individual Certificates were given out. Congratulations to all the children who received one.

The JRSO leaders had collected in all the entries for the North Lanarkshire Road Safety Calendar Competition,  they then had the very hard job of narrowing it down to winners from each class before submitting the class winners to North Lanarkshire for the final overall judging.  Congratulations to those who won, but a massive well done to all who took part.  Here’s hoping for a favourable result to our entries.

Wider Achievements were also showcased at assembly from Primary 3 and Primary 4. Here at Morningside we are so proud of the children’s achievements outwith school.

An exciting maths week came to an end on Friday with the children having enjoyed various activities including researching how maths is incorporated in different careers.  There had also been an in-school Sumdog competition which was won by Primary 6.  The day ended with the fantastic “How far do your Pennies Go” Challenge, with the children laying their pennies side by side along the length of the playground and then measuring them.

I have been very impressed by the efforts made by pupils to research and create posters about the articles covered so far. Keep up the hard work MPS!
