World Children’s Day

Posted on November 28, 2019

World Children's Day

World Children’s Day was celebrated on Wednesday 20th November.  World Children’s Day celebrates the power of children to change the world.  This World Children’s Day was extra special as it marked the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We used this event as an opportunity to create some fantastic, collaborative artwork that illustrates some of the articles set out in the UNCRC.  Children from classes across the school designed puzzle pieces illustrating different articles.  These were then pieced together to create collaborative puzzles showing that all of the articles are equally important.  Newsround, on CBBC, reported on the 30th anniversary last week.  Follow this link to read the article and watch the video clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/50475510
