KS1 Rights in Action

KS1 have been busy learning all about 'Children's Rights.' The pupils have taken part in a range of exciting activities that bring the rights to life. 

Children in KS1 took part in activities with the wonderful Paddington Bear. We discovered where he was from and why he had to leave his family and place of birth to find refuge in England. Children loved watching clips from the movie to help them understand the issues that refugees might face today in society. 
All activities were practical and personal to them which helped to support the difficult language and concepts involved. Lots of discussions also came from this fantastic week of exploration and a deeper understanding into Children’s Rights was gained.

We created our family tree, investigated our names and thought about what we would take in a suitcase if we suddenly had to flee our homes.

Children in KS1 travelled around the world with their right to hold a passport and use their name. We travelled with Barnaby Bear, visiting Scotland, India and Australia-who loves Marmite?

KS1 took part in 'PANTS' training this week and learnt a very important message from 'Pantosaurus'. We discussed how this training helps to keep us safe and the roles that 'Duty Bearers' and 'Rights Holders' have in these scenarios. (Articles 12, 16, 34).
