Year 3 and 4 Choir

The choir gave a super performance at Morrison’s in Rugeley this morning.  They certainly got all the shoppers into the Christmas spirit.  We think that with the support of so many family and friends we performed to over 100 people this morning.  Well done to all the children! Thanks also to the staff at Morrison’s for the squash and biscuits (and tea for the teachers!!!).

RRSA Transition Day

The Rights Respecting Schools Award focuses on children’s rights in schools and takes a whole-school approach to child rights and human rights education. Child Rights Education (CRE) can be defined as learning aboutrights, learning through rights and learning for rights within an overall context of education as a right. It aims to build the capacity of children and young people as rights-holders to claim their rights and the capacity of adults as duty-bearers to fulfil their obligations. Child rights education helps adults, children and young people to work together, providing the space and encouragement for the meaningful participation and sustained civic engagement of children and young people.

As part of the RRSA the children discuss articles that protect them and help them become well-rounded members of the society.

Article 28 says that “State Parties recognise the right of children to education” and “should take all appropriate measures to ensure that school discipline is administered in a manner consistent with the child’s human dignity.”

Transition day was used to discuss this article with the children and in Reception and Year 2 the children created handprints using paint to show their pledge to help each other have the right to a good education when discussing the class charter.

In Year 3 the children looked at their own identity and family groups. This links with Article 8 of the UNCRC which is about a child or young person’s name, nationality and family relationships.
