Rights Respecting School Week

Last week, we had a focus on our Rights Respecting School learning.

As a Rights Respecting School, the Unicef Convention on the Rights of the Child is threaded through all of our learning at Oakwood. We have whole school, class, playground and restaurant charters which remind us of our rights and how we can respect them. We learn about our rights in assemblies and in our lessons. Our whole school PSHE theme for this half term is 'This is Me', and we are learning about ourselves, and how our words and actions portray our character.

Last week, we learned more about the rights of children in other countries, particularly those children who, for one reason or another, are forced to leave their homes. We also took part in the Send My Friend to School Campaign. This year, the focus for this is 'Let's Unlock Education for Everyone'.

Our learning included reading books, completing research, drama and freeze frames - to name but a few. Every child has also written to our MP as part of the Send My Friend to School campaign, and we will be sending off our letters very soon.
