Autumn term 2 2020
Our Y2 RRS Ambassadors led an assembly about Universal Children's Day on 20.11.20. They reminded everyone about children's rights and asked them to make sure that they have discussed and displayed their Class Charters.
Every RRS Amabassador led an assembly in their own class about Disability Awareness Day on 03.12.20.
The 10th December was Human Rights Day. Every class in the school have had an assembly to talk about celebrating this day as the day the declaration was agreed. In Years 1, 2 and 3, we talked about the difference between wants and needs and decided which picture card to put in each group. Then we talked about the things we need being rights - we already know that children have rights and now we know that adults to do.
Nov./Dec. 2020: As a Rights-Respecting School we have taken part in this year's 'Send My Friend to School' Campaign again with the focus being sending ALL children to school. We have done lots of work in school about children's rights and how some children (in other countries, but also in the UK) are not able to attend school currently due to a variety of reasons - one being the current pandemic.
We have emailed our local MP, Mr. Conor McGinn, to invite him to attend a virtual assembly in January.
This term, each class have talked about the UNCRC - the rights of the child - then discussed which are the most important to them and created their class charter. Our Rights-Respecting Ambassadors will be responsible for making sure that they are used in class.
