Rights Respecting Week – February 2019 (Article 2)
We started our Rights Respecting week by looking at 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 made a rainbow from our handprints, coloured rainbow flags and made posters. During the week each class looked at one aspect of the rights and on Friday we ended the week by celebrating our individuality with a rainbow procession around school in our rainbow colours and with our rainbow flags. Our Assembly presentation on the afternoon shared with parents the wide range of activities and learning that the children have enjoyed.
Educate and Celebrate – January 2019
‘The whole principle of Educate & Celebrate is now influencing everything in our school life. All children have a right to the playground and the classroom being safe places, ones free from prejudice of sexuality, race or religion. It’s a truth that children can sometimes be mean, especially when it comes to differences; in some cases they need help to understand that all being different is a cause for celebration, not aggression. We started our assembly today with a short introduction to Educate and Celebrate by watching a fairy story and learning just what it means. Over the next few weeks we will be starting to learn an important message of inclusion, tolerance and celebration of diversity.
