Welcome to Year 5!

Autumn 1 - Children's rights, right or wrong?


This terms central idea: All children deserve their rights.
Article 32: Children have the right to protection from work that harms them, and is bad for their health and education. If children work, they have the right to be safe and paid fairly.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out the rights that all children should have available to them. In this topic, children will be given the opportunity to explore how children’s rights have developed from Victorian Britain to Britain today, exploring the classic and visual texts of Oliver Twist and Street Child. Children will explore how, as the Victorian period developed, the lives of children improved and began to change, paving the way for modern childhood today. Essentially, learners will develop their understanding of their rights and responsibilities, while exploring how social changes - through history - led to the development of these rights in our society. Through our book study ‘The lost thing’ and through Oliver Twist we will gather evidence of the rights that were lost, and what could have been done to ensure the rights were given.
