Class 4: Working with WCBC to improve play in our community

Today we practised being ethically informed citizens. 
  • engaged with contemporary issues. 
  • understood and exercised our human and democratic responsibilities and rights.
  • understood and considered the impact of our actions when making choices.
  • shared our knowledge about our community.
We worked with WCBC and researchers from the University of Gloucestershire on our experiences of play in our community. 
  • Where do we play? 
  • Are there any opportunities/areas for outdoor play? 
  • What do we play? 
  • What gets in the way of us playing? 
  • How can we protect and improve opportunities for play in our community?

We learned about Artice 31 of the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child). This states that children and young people have the right to have fun in the way they want to. It creates a right for all children to have rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to their age.
Hopefully our input counts and can be used to inform the next funding meeting.
