Rights Respecting Schools

In class we discussed Article 31 of the Rights of the Child. We think it is important for all children to have the right to play and rest.

“You share ideas when you play.”

“Relaxing makes you feel better.”

“Relaxing helps people think through what has happened.”

“You need rest because it helps you focus afterwards.”

“People feel included when they are playing.”

“We learn new things when we are playing and we get to know other people.”

We thought it would be a great idea to design an area to play and relax in. It was important to include a variety of activities that all children could take part in. We included a sensory area in our designs and discussed why access to the activities was important too.
