Our Continued Learning about Rights of the Child and Global Goals

We have continued on our Rights Respecting journey over the last few months and the RRSA committee have worked hard to think of activities and ideas to help our pupils to learn more about different rights.

Climate Change

Article 24 – Children have the right to good health care, nutritious  food and clean drinking water

Article 27 – Children have a right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and mental needs.

Global Goals –

During the COP 26 conference pupils took part in many activities that allowed them to learn more about the effects of climate change on our planet and how children’s rights are being affected.

P1a enjoyed learning and singing a song about how they can take small steps to help stop climate change.

P4b telling us what they can do to reduce their Carbon Footprint.

P2 children made Nature Mandalas. A mandala is a common design among many different cultures. A mandala is a symbol representing the universe and life. The circular design is meant to show how everything in life is connected.
P7 made are taking action against climate change and have made their very own ‘Forest of Promises’
P1 also made a ‘Promise Tree’ showing the different ways they can help in the fight against climate change.
P4b create climate change poems to help them understand more about the effects of climate change on our planet.

P5 made their own ‘Protest Banners’ and learned how peaceful protesting can help raise awareness of important issues.

Anti- bullying Week

Article 2 – All children have rights without discrimination, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.

Article 12 – Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views respectfully considered and taken seriously.

The children took part in ‘Anti-bullying Week’ and made the link between this and articles from Rights of the Child.

P4a discussed what respect looks like, feels like and sounds like. They created excellent Mind Maps demonstrating how they can show respect to others.

Children in P6/7 made Anti-bullying posters to be displayed around the school and community.

They also used scenario cards to open up discussion on different types of bullying.

P4b made a class Anti-bullying acrostic poem.
