The Journey

We read the story "The Journey". It is about a family who had to leave their home because of a war. They became refugees trying to get to another country so that they could be safe. We discovered how difficult it is for refugees to escape their country and to make the hard journey. They must feel very frightened. We felt very sad after reading the story.

 

Article 22 - If a child is a refugee or seeking refuge, governments must make sure that they have the same rights as any other child.

🌳Garvagh Forest🌸

We went on our Shared Education outing with Kilrea Primary School. Liz O'Connor was our guide and she helped us to explore Garagh Forest. We looked at all the different plants, trees and flowers. We listened to the songs of all the birds. Then we got to have a mini-beast hunt and build dens. We even found a tree frog! It was a great day of exploring and fun with our friends from Kilrea Primary School.

 

Article 15 - Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations.

Refugees from Syria

We read a story on the Newsdesk about people who had to leave their homes in Syria because of a war. They had to make the long journey across the sea to get to Europe. Some of them died along the way. We felt very sad that this is happening to many people in the world. We left a comment about the story for other people to see. There was a vote to choose what we would do to welcome refugees to our town. We voted for - Make friends with refugee children who come to your school.

Year 1 are having a Bake Sale to raise money for the refugees so we will bring in money to buy buns and this will go to the refugees. We hope this will help them.

 

Article 17 - Every child has the right to reliable information from the media.

Paddington was a Refugee

We learnt how Paddingtion had to leave Peru because of an earthquake. He came to London alone on a boat. He had nowhere to go and no-one to look after him. The Brown family welcomed him in to their home. We talked about how we would welcome Paddington (or any refugees) to our community in Kilrea.

 

Article 22 - If a child is a refugee or seeking refuge, governments must make sure that they have the same rights as any other child.

UNICEF - Children's Rights

We drew a picture to illustrate one of the rights that we know.

Wants and Needs

Year 2 had a great discussion about the things we

really need to stay alive and those things that we

only just want. We wish that every child had

everything that they needed.

Trocaire

During Lent we made an extra special effort to bring in

some coins for the Trocaire box. We know that some children

do not have any clean water or food. They maybe have no mummy

or daddy to care for them. There is very little medicine available

to help them if they get sick. We want to help people in need.

The Rights of a Child

We watched a UNICEF video about the rights

of a child.We are learning all about this

at school.

Fairtrade Fortnight

  We learned how important it is that the farmers

in developing countries get paid enough for their products.

It is only fair that they get enough money to care for

their families. Those children should have the same rights 

to food, health and education as we do.

Fairy Tales Assembly

We performed an assembly to tell the rest of the school how some of the children in Fairytales did not get their rights! We were able to identify the rights within many of our traditional fairytales. We discussed tales such as Hansel and Gretal and how children have the right to be cared for by an adult (Article 7). Cinderella told us about Article 6, how every child has the right to life as well as to develop to their full potential. Snow White reminded us of Article 19, how governments must do all they can to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them. Poor Snow White had a wicked step mother who deprived her of this right.

Christmas Jumper Day🎄

We raised money for our local charities.

Article 4 - Children must do all they can to make sure that every child can enjoy their rights

This year we are lucky that we have our own building

site here in school. We are able to look out everyday and

take a walk around to see what is going on. We hope to

learn a lot from what we see.
