The children in the Reception classes (age 4 and 5) discussed their rights!
1. First, they discussed the necessities needed to survive.
'We need jacket' - Lydia
'We need an EtonHouse' - Cayden
'We need socks' - Yuna
2. Next, they began to incorporate the word 'right'
'We have the right to play' - Morgen
'We have the right to eat' - Lydia
3. Children took their vocabulary home, demonstrating what they learned to their parents.
‘Children need to sleep and eat, we need energy to grow up, up, up' - Vincent
‘Children need toys to play and have fun’ -Gaby
‘I need to have fun, so I can be a happy girl’ –Deborah
‘Children need shoes, outside of home is very dirty’ -Emily
The children built on the definition of the word ‘rights’. They described it as: ‘something all children need to have’.
Then they listed the things all the children need to have some of the things they came up with were:
- ‘a name’
- ‘a house’
- ‘to be happy’
