In memory of Martin Luther King Jr P3 read the story ‘Tusk Tusk’.
We discussed what we liked and disliked about the story.
Majority of the class liked when the grey peacekeeping elephants came out of the jungle and were friends and disliked when the black and white elephants were fighting. We looked at the elephants in the story and compared similarities and difference. The pupils noticed the only difference was the colour of their skin. As a class we spoke about whether that means they should not get on and be treat differently? Some pupils replied “No they are still the same.” “They both can live in the jungle.”
Article 2: All children have these rights, no matter who they are, where they live, what their parents do, what language they speak, what their religion is, whether they are a boy or girl, what their culture is, whether they have a disability, whether they are rich or poor. No child should be treated unfairly on any basis.
We then discussed what we could do as a class to be more like the grey elephants. Some of the ideas were;
“being kind”, “listening” and “sharing”.
P3 worked really hard all day to be like the grey peacekeeping elephants in the story.
They did this by taking turns and working together.
Sharing and listening to each other.
During our English lesson we spoke about hopes and dreams for the future. Pupils were given the sentence starter ‘I have a dream…’ and asked to finish the sentence with something they would like to be able to do by the end of the school year.
Happy Monday Everyone!
