Over the next couple of weeks P4 and P4/5 are going to be working on their Enterprise project.

We have decided to promote healthy eating at Crown Primary School by running a healthy eating tuck shop at break times from Tuesday 23rd to Thursday 25th May.

This afternoon teams of  pupils used their creative thinking skills to come up with a team name, logo and slogan, not to mention a great idea for their stall!

We will keep you posted on our progress via the blog. Watch out Alan Sugar, here we come!

Equality in Sports

Crown Primary School P5/6 (2016/17)

We had a fantastic visit from Caley Thistle’s Gary Warren teaching us all about gender and race equality in sports.

We found out some very worrying facts including:

  • There are not even half as many women’s football matches on TV as men’s
  • Men footballers earn 3x more than women
  • 24% of female footballers had been bullied
  • There have been well over 600 racist incidents in football

The children also found that they couldn’t name any women’s players. We decided that this was likely due to the lack of publication of women’s games.

We were able to link Gary’s visit to Article 2 (non-discrimination) of the UNCRC and Global Goal 10 (reduced inequalities).

Lucky Connor even got to model a ‘show racism the red card’ shirt which Caley are using to promote race equality in their games!

A Visit from Gary Warren

Crown Primary 6

We had a fantastic visit from the Captain of Inverness Caley Thistle, Gary Warren, who came to support our learning about equality and rights.  It was really interesting to hear about his experiences and the role ICT takes to promote equality. P5/6 and P6 asked some impressive questions as we explored the issues of gender, racism and sexism in sport. We told him all about the UNCRC and the Gloabl Goals! #UNCRC Article 2 # Global Goals 5 & 10

Roll a Rights Respecting Russell

Article 24: Health and Health Services Global Goal 3: Health and Wellbeing

Crown Primary School P5/6 (2016/17)

A HUGE well done to P5/6 and P6 for tonight’s Roll a Rights Respecting Russell event!

I am so proud of all the hard work that they put into making tonight a success. Lots of fun was had and most importantly money was raised for the Archie Foundation through this fantastic event.

Lots of people came and said how great it was and it was SO nice being able to truthfully say that it was not the teachers that made it all happen it was the pupils!

Here are some photos from our evening.

Thank you to everyone who came. We will let you know once we know how much we have raised.

10,000 Dresses

P5/6 and P6 having been considering Article 2 of the UNCRC – Non: discrimination and Global Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities through their study of the book ‘10,000 Dresses’. 

Miss Earnshaw and Miss Morton were so impressed by the level of thoughtful discussion around the issues of gender, stereotyping, identify and understanding. Take a look at the main themes we deciphered from the text and the dresses we designed for the central character Bailey.
