- Daven Primary School is a 'Rights Respecting School'. Each week we will be focussing on an 'Article of the Week'. This week is Article 23 which states: A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity, and as far as possible, independence, and to play an active part in their community.

Under the files to download section at the bottom of this page, there is an 'Article of the Week' file which contains a variety of activities that you can do together at home. I have also attached the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which lists all the articles in child friendly language.

WALT: create questions.

 

Write a letter to a friend from your class who you have not seen for a while. Remember to ask them questions about what they have been doing during lockdown and tell them about what you have been doing. 

 

Example:

To My Best Friend,  

I am writing to you because I have really missed you whilst we have not been in school. Have you missed me? 

During lockdown, I have been really busy having fun in the sunshine with my brothers and sisters but also doing my school work. I have really enjoyed doing the Lego and Science challanges. What have you been doing during lockdown? Are you looking forward to going back to school? I can't wait to see you again!

I am looking forward to the summer holidays and spending more time with my family. After learning about Blackpool, I really want to visit the Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Tower. Do you know what you are doing in the holidays?

Please write back to me and I will see you in September!
