Rights Respecting School
UNICEF is the world's leading organisation working for children and their rights. Every child, no matter who they are or where they live, has the right to grow up safe, happy and healthy. The UN Convention on the rights of the child details what countries must do in order for children to grow as healthy as possible, receive a good education, receive protection, improve wellbeing, have their views listened to and be treated fairly.
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) recognises that a school is teaching children about their rights and has the UN Convention Rights of the Child at the heart of a school's ethos and culture with a view to improving well-being and developing every child's talents and abilities to their full potential.
Monday 11th June was Global Goals Day at Delves Infants. Children across school were learning all about the 17 Global Goals, which have been agreed by world leaders. Click on the link or ask your child for more information.
In reception children focused on the Goal: Life on Land.
In year one Children focused on the goal of Zero Hunger. they learned about where food comes from and what happens to food that is wasted. They then decided that we could do more in school towards this goal if we put our fruit waste in compost bins to use in our Forest School area.
They wrote letters to persuade the head teacher to buy compost caddies for each classroom. Watch this space!
Children in Year 2 were focused on Life Under Water, which linked to the learning and writing we have done in our Wonderful World Topic. Children learned about plastic and the effects it is having on our oceans. They then wrote letters to local supermarkets and shops to try and encourage them to cut back on packaging. copies of their letters were also sent to MP Valerie Vaz.
Children then recycled plastic bottles to create ocean creatures, raising awareness of the issue through their art work.
