In Year 4, we have had lots of interesting discussions and debates on the various topics in our Jigsaw scheme this term.
So far…we have been exploring the concept of inclusion and what it means to belong to our community groups as opposed to being excluded an not involved. It was agreed that being included makes us feel respected, valued and part of a team within all the groups that we belong to.
We have identified the roles of the adults who work within the Christopher Pickering community. After much debate, the children all agreed that all of the adult roles are equally important to ensure that our school functions on a daily basis so that we can be the best we can be.
Exploring the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children (UNCRC 1989) was enlightening for all the children who are now more aware of the rights which they have, as well as to how each of the articles within this important document endeavour to make sure they are safe and cared for.
Further discussions upon the current rewards and consequences utilised within our school community as opposed to those which were used in education establishments in the past, made the children more aware of how the strategies today are more considerate and respectful of their human rights.
