Rights Respecting - Article of the week
Article of the week is a regular set of learning activities centred on a specific article linked to the UN Convention on the Rights of the child (UNCRC). Each week week we will post a new article which we will be focussing on in school along with suggested activities which you can complete at home if you wish - you are very welcome to share your activities with your class teacher by posting on your class page.
This weeks article of the week is centred around Article 6 – life, survival and development.
Every child has the right to life.
Governments must do all they can to ensure that children survive and develop to their full potential.
Take a look at this short video where Kathy introduces Article 6...
All of the below activities are linked to Article 6, for KS1 children these will also be posted on Google Classroom,
You don’t need to do every single activity but if you have time you can do more than one!
1) Draw a duty bearer (or adult) and label your picture with everything they do to help you survive and develop. How do these things change over time?
2) Read the book or watch the video of ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers.
Share your questions about the world and think about how we can look after the world around us so that we can all survive and thrive.
3) Design a logo or write a poem to help other people to understand the meaning of Article 6
