Rights Respecting School 20/21

We are a GOLD rights respecting school

Our class charters are powerful when discussing children’s rights in the classroom

Rights Respecting Day 12th May 2021

 

Today our School was a sea of blue 🌊 as the children celebrated our Rights Respecting Day. Everybody wore blue and donated a pound which will be going to a UNICEF initiative to help other children around the world have their rights met. 
From Nursery right through to Year 2 our children amazed us with their knowledge and understanding of their rights. We looked at different countries around the world and how they acknowledged children’s rights and then compared them to this country - some countries do not acknowledge children’s rights we were shocked to find !!!

Parking Protest 29th - 1st April 2021

After complaints came into the school office about the dangerous parking around the school at drop off and pick ups the School Council decided to remind our grown ups about our rights to be heard (article 12) and our right to be safe (article 19).

Year 2 helped us to design some road safety posters and we held a week long protest outside the school gates in the morning and the afternoon just before drop off and pick up.

We have noticed a reduction in dangerous parking and our children are now having their right to be safe respected.

Thank you to everyone who took notice of our protest 🚙🙏

Earth Day - Reception have been learning about their right to clean water, sorting all the rubbish into the correct recycle bins. We noticed the water was polluted so we thought of ideas to save our oceans.

During the period of lockdown the school council decided it was very important to remind the children of our rights , especially the right to relax and play (article 31) which linked to our screen free day.

See you September 

Mrs Underwood 

Hello everyone !

 

I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe - school is definitely not the same without you all !

 

Eco Eddie has asked me to ask you all if you could help him with our next Eco Brick challenge ??

We need to collect 257 2litre Eco Bricks !!! Yes that’s right 257 !! I know that sounds a lot but if we can all make just 2, 2 litre Eco Bricks per family we will have them in no time at all 👍😊 and think of all the plastic you are keeping out of our rivers and oceans 🌊🐳🐢🐠🥰 I know what brilliant Eco Warriors you all are 🌿

 

Now what do we need all those Eco Bricks for I hear you ask ??? Well Mr Moore and Eco Eddie have come up with a brilliant plan to make a stage for our Reception area, so our Reception children can sing, dance and perform whenever they like - doesn’t that sound fantastic 🎭🤹🏾‍♀️🎼

 

How do you make an EcoBrick?

  1. Collect your clean and dry household waste. We recommend only waste that you cannot recycle (like dog food bags), but you can EcoBrick anything non-biodegradable and dry.
  2. Twist your waste and insert it into a plastic bottle. Compress it as tightly as you can with a stick.
  3. Keep doing this - make sure your bottle is unsquishable.
  4. Think your EcoBrick is done? If you can squeeze it by more than 10% with one hand you should add more waste.
  5. No longer squishable? It's done!

You will need your  grownups to help as they need to be packed really tight and you need to weigh them before you return them to school - a 2 litre bottle needs to weigh 660grams !! That’s quite a lot so remember to pack them tightly 👍

 

So happy Eco Bricking everyone!

 

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon 🥰

 

Mrs Underwood 😊

 

RAINBOW HAVEN VISIT 19.02.20

We had some visitors from Rainbow Haven Charity today. They talked to us about the work they do with Refugees and what it means to be a Refugee.

At Moss Park Infants we know that Refugee children have the same rights as us and we want to help them have their rights met, by sharing this knowledge and practically, by bringing in donations for our visitors.

We’re so proud of our Rights Respecting community 💗🌈

Our parents and carers have been very generous and brought in lots of donations for The Rainbow Haven charity !!
THANK YOU SO MUCH !! 

And here’s what the children think MPI RRS #GOLD 🌟

Please work with us on a journey to become fully Rights Respecting. This award will recognises our school's achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC or UNCRC) into practice within Moss Park Infants and beyond. We are excited to be on the rights-respecting journey.
