This morning, Year 5 took part in a workshop led by Amnesty International UK.
As the children explored the exhibition, they thought deeply about different rights, including women’s rights, children’s rights and refugee rights.
They then responded by creating their own posters to show and promote the human rights that are important to them. We are so proud of their mature and thoughtful conversations and the posters they created! Here are some examples:

Listen to some of the children's discussion below.
What does religion teach about right and wrong? How do religious people decide how to solve dilemmas?
As part of a whole school focus on right and wrong, Year 5 have been exploring the question: How do religious people decide how to solve dilemmas? The children used and built on prior learning about dilemmas and applied religious scriptures to help give advice. They then worked in pairs to develop their own 'wise advice', drawing upon different religious texts and other 'guides' that helps them decide on making decisions.
