Rights Respecting Schools/ Global

 

On Monday morning a speaker from the charity CAFOD came in to start off the week by talking to us about the work they do and about the right to clean water which many children around the world do not have. 

Y3 and Y4 spent a week discussing Article 22. We did this through role play, freeze frame, discussion in mixed age groups, dance, art, poetry writing, map skills and P4C. The question voted for in Y4 was " Where are the leaders and governments and why are they not helping ALL refugees.. Please take time to look at photos of Y3 and Y4 working together on the different activities.

Y6 spent a week focusing on Colombia and Article 32: “You have the right to protection from work that harms you, and is bad for your health and education. If you work, you have the right to be safe and paid fairly.” Throughout the week we did a variety of activities linked to this right and country.

We started by using our map skills to locate all of the countries in the world where child labour is prevalent. Then we focused in on our country of Colombia where we looked at different photographs and were shocked to see the varying areas of one country. We also investigated the case study of Pablo, a child labourer in Colombia.

Following this we looked into child labour in the coffee industry and were split into 5 groups and assigned different roles within the coffee chain. This helped us to understand how coffee is brought to Bunbury Coop from Colombia! We debated how much money we should all earn and were shocked to find out the truth.

We also created some art work where we used coffee to create silhouettes of Bogata, the capital of Colombia, and images of child labourers.

We looked at current newspaper reports, informing us of child labour in Colombia and transformed ourselves into news reporters to create our very own news reports in groups.

Lastly, we started work on creating pie charts to represent a global picture of Bunbury School by collating information from our whole school survey. This work will be finished soon.

Please see some photos below of the CAFOD assembly and the Y6 news reports.
