Rights of the Month Challenge
The Right of the month for July is Article 6, The Right to life and be Healthy. I have found a lovely website that has some ideas that tells you about food facts, gives you recipes to make healthy meals and activities to keep you fit. (https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts)
The recipes include ideas for healthier lunchboxes that you might like to try while you are at home and then use them in September! (https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/recipes/healthier-lunchboxes).
Click on the activities link and it gives you ideas on how to keep fit while you are at home and tells you why keeping fit helps us. (https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/activities.)
Hope you enjoy the activities and let me know how you get on with the recipes and the activities.
Rights of the Month Challenge
The Right of the Month for June is Article 31, The Right to Relax and Play.
Since we have been at home it has been very strange that we have been unable to see some of our family, to play with our friends and other activities we normally do. It is still important to find the time to relax and play while we are at home. How have you done this? It would be lovely if you could show us, video, drawing, photographs or any way that you would like to! Send in via email or twitter?
Below are some pictures of how I have made sure I have relaxed.
I have enjoyed baking and have done lots of cooking. I have had a few bike rides and found lots of new running routes. I have found sewing very relaxing and have made a quilt. I have even taken up a new hobby, knitting!
Rights of the Month Challenge
To a good standard of Living (Article 27)
I have looked at my standard of living and decided what I am thankful for and what I enjoy doing.
I have used my name to create an Acrostic poem, where the first letter forms a word.
I have illustrated it with pictures and photos but you can decorate it how you would like. You can write a few sentences to explain your poem.
To good food and water and to see a doctor if you are ill (Article 24)
Can you represent this month's right through a video, poem, poster, animation or letter!

25th February 2020
The School Council looked again at the Children's Commissioner for Wales website and looked at the special mission. They decided that as a school they did not want to form a new group, as they felt that Pupil Voice is very strong in school. They looked at their local community and how they could help certain groups with in the community.They decided that they would like to organize an afternoon tea party where they can play games and talk to the the older generation. They are going to put together a list of games that they can play. They would like to invite the Women's Institute, residents from Burrows Hall, The Open the Book Group and members of the local church.
