This is what P2/3 think about the old curriculum rationale:

This is what P2/3 think about the new curriculum rationale:
 It is bright and colourful
 It is not black and white
 It has the school logo big so you know it is our school
 Easier to read
 Nice short sentences
P3/4 Issues
P3/4 prefer the new rationale because
 It is colourful
 There is less writing
 More appealing
 Catches your eye
 Looks more interesting
 There is a picture
 Our parents would read this one
Other issues:
 Primary 7 are still taking our things in the playground.
 Children are still being pushed off the eco domes.
