Term One Review

P5a are coming to the end of a fantastic first term. Since starting Primary Five, we have had a learning focus on community – both within our classroom now and throughout history. Here are some of the highlights from this term.

Sciennes is a rights respecting school, reflected through our class charter. We discussed the rights of the child and how they can be upheld in our school community. P5a we’re passionate that we all had the right to learn, be creative and supported in doing so. Our rights charter is displayed proudly in out classroom, each pupil contributing something they were proud of to the poster.

In our study of communities, we learned about the Aboriginals, the indigenous population of Australia. Aboriginal art is still prevalent in their community today, as it passes down stories and traditions to new generations. P5a created their own aboriginal art, inspired by nature and animals indigenous to Australia. Aboriginal art primarily uses natural colours, symbols, lines and dots.

Dear world leaders… In the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow, we discussed our global community and the United effort to tackle Climate Change. On the globe is a message from each pupil to the world leaders, expressing their vision for the future and what they hope will be achieved. All pupils contributed to the piece, made entirely of scrap paper from our classroom.
