This year our P7 Conference featured articles of the UNCRC and rights based learning. Fresh fruit trays were provided at morning break and pupils were introduced to the four elements of the Silver Level Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) and how to record progress through eJASS. We were delighted to welcome Sion Pickering from JASS and FOTA.
Pupils got to experience each of the four elements of the award scheme at the conference:
1. Me and My World - Sarah Pope, Mercy Corps
2. My Interests Eilidh Scott, Knitting for All
3. Get Active, Stay Active Aimee Fraser, Dance Division
4. eJASS – recording JASS progress online using iPadseJASS - Introduction and Planning Session
5. Adventure – Lagganlia and Outdoor Learning - pupils discussed their forthcoming week’s residential at Lagganlia Centre for Outdoor Learning
At the conference, P7 pupils used an online planning tool to help them begin to think about ways to achieve the award by the end of the Easter holidays. Each pupil has also been given access to eJASS. In May next year, pupils will be asked to give a five minute presentation to their classmates describing what they have done to achieve the award.
Sciennes and Tollcross were part of the initial pilot for JASS a number of years ago. Several years ago, we began working with
- Ian Forder from JASS
- software developer Steve Moore
- the Digital Learning Team
- Alice Brown, Headteacher at Tollcross Primary
- Barry Hewitt from Outdoor Learning
- Claire Cooper from Drummond HIgh School
