Article 23 – Education must develop every child’s personality talents and ability to the full.
Squirrel Class have had an amazing morning in the pool, working on some important target whilst having so much. They have all worked extra hard to improve their swimming skills with some fantastic bubble blowing, splashing, kicking and floating!
Article 23 (children with a disability) A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and, as far as possible, independence and to play an active part in the community. Governments must do all they can to support disabled children and their families.
Article 29 (goals of education) Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
Squirrel class have been looking at observational drawings. They looked at the different colours of the plants and textures. They used chalks and pastels to recreate their own real-life drawings. We displayed their wonderful artwork in our classroom. What do you think ?
This half term, squirrel class are looking at the book ‘The Tiger Child’. For this the classroom was transformed into a jungle.
During our lessons, the children enjoyed a variety of activities based around the jungle and jungle animals. We discussed and wrote about what we might see in the jungle, we had a look at the national geographic website on the iPads and we made our own jungle animals using recycled bottles and craft paper.
