The beginning of a new session sees Riverbank classes design and produce their new class charters for the session. Some changes may be made during the course of the terms if the pupils feel that new advice needs to be added or removed from their Charter.
The items on the Class Charter are decided by the pupils and this follows discussion in the class around what should be part of the Class Charter. On top of Class Charters, all the children in Riverbank sign up to the Whole School Charter, which has just seen a revamp! From creatures and things of the garden, we now have a Charter based around things from under the sea. All pupils will eventually sign up to the Whole School Charter, if they haven’t already done so, by providing a colourful fish for the display.The Primary 2s under the guidance of Mrs Cartney, one of our PSAs, provided most of the large items for the display.
We hope when you visit the school that you have time to take a look at the revamped Whole School Charter. The Whole School Charter is produced form the ideas which repeat themselves on the Class Charters. Each item has two parts to it, what the children will do to achieve success and what the adults in school will do to help them achieve this. These can be seen in the bubbles from the large fish. Additionally, the Articles from the UNCRC, which are particularly relevant to the Charter, are also placed on the Charter and they can be seen on the jellyfish which are swimming in our RRS Sea.
It was noticeable that our good pals, The Minions, are as popular as ever and appear on quite a few of the Class Charters.
I hope you enjoy having a look at some of the Class Charters as well as the Whole School Charter.
