Welcome to the Autumn term. During this term our school is thinking about Social Justice and Equity. The children will learn about respect for people and their human rights. The UN Convention on the Rights of the child says;
"States Parties shall respect and ensure the rights set forth in the present Convention to each child within their jurisdiction without discrimination of any kind, irrespective of the child’s or his or her parent’s or legal guardian’s race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status."
We will be Looking at The Paperbag Princess by Rodger Munsch. In the book Princess Elizabeth demonstrates qualities not normally demonstrated by Princesses in stories. During this study we will be thinking about gender roles and stereotypes in particular.
There are links below to songs and other resources for you to access at home. These activities will give you a flavour of what is being delivered in class.

Stay safe and happy!
