This half term, each class has been studying a different world religion. Members of our Rights-Respecting Steering Group led an assembly in which each class shared some of the knowledge they had developed about each faith:
Year 1 - Christianity
Year 2 - Islam
Year 3 - Hinduism
Year 4 - Judaism
Year 5 - Sikhism
Year 6 - Buddhism
The children talked about some of the similarities and differences between the religions.
This links to Article 14 of the UNCRC: Every child has the right to think and believe what they want and to practise their religion as long as they are not stopping others from enjoying their rights.

In this week's Eco-Council meeting, Scott (Lyme Park's Ranger) came to talk to us about ideas to develop the park area. He asked the group to look at a map of the park and think about how we can help him to improve the signs and encourage more people to visit.
In the Spring/Summer term he will be asking the Eco-Council to lead a competition across school to design some art work for the new signs

On Monday, three members of our Rights-Respecting Steering Group led a whole-school assembly to the staff and 420 students at St. Ann's CE Primary School, Rainhill as they begin their rights-respecting journey. They talked to them about the rights of the child and the work we have done at Lyme to achieve our Gold accreditation. The children there listened very carefully and had lots of questions about children's rights. As always, our RRS ambassadors were a credit to Lyme!

by John McCrae, May 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Many thanks to Emily Knight who will lay our wreath at the Remembrance day Parade on Sunday.
