P7 and P6 have been doing buddying, buddying is where either the P6’s or P7’s pair up with the P1’s or P2’s this year the P7’s were paired up the the P2’s and the P6’s were paired up with the P1’s. With buddies we do things like, gym, crown creating, junk modeling, playing, reading etc. I think buddying is a great asset to the school and its just fun and enjoyable.
Here at Sound Primary School we are a Rights Respecting School and today we celebrated the 25th anniversary of Children’s Rights.
The whole school split into house groups and children from P1-7 mixed together to make fantastic co-operative learning groups.
We wrote letters to the Minister for Children and Young People as we want to raise awareness of Children’s Rights in parliament. We made bunting to display in our canteen. Each child made a piece of bunting to contribute which they used to tell everyone why Children’s Rights are important to them. We also created a graffiti wall with words we associate with Children’s Rights.
We hope that one day all children will have the rights that we do.
