I am so excited about tommorow when unicef is coming Here is a bit about them;

Right now, children are in danger. They face violence, disease,hunger, and the chaos of war and disaster. This is wrong and it has to change.

Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We work in over 190 countries around the world. We have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children than anyone else in history.

We get things done.

And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.

Unicef was created by the United Nations in December 1946, after World War II, to provide food, clothing and healthcare to European children who faced famine and disease.

In 1953 the UN General Assembly extended Unicef’s mandate indefinitely.

We now work in more than 190 countries with families, local communities, business partners and governments, to help protect children in danger.

Unicef UK was founded in 1956 and is a registered charity.

This is the most important part…

Education: The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA)

Right Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) initiative works with thousands of schools across the UK to put children’s rights at their heart to improve well-being and help all children reach their full potential. The award recognises achievement in embedding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in a school’s ethos and culture.

Why do we have rights and what will happen if we didn’t have them ??????

Why do we have rights?

We have rights to protect us. Another reason why we have rights is because we need to be safe and also we need to have them so that we make friends and also listen to other people’s opinions. We have rights to help us learn and to stop fighting. The whole point of having rights is so that we can be treated the same, we have rights so that means we should be treated equally. We also have rights to make sure we do the right thing so that we know if we are doing anything bad or not.  

What will happen if we didn’t have rights?????? 

If we didn’t have rights we wouldn’t actually be talking about rights. We would be fighting if we did not have rights. Rights help us to do good things. Another fact here is that if we didn’t have any rights it wouldn’t be safe because some countries don’t have the right to education and every person should have that right. Every child has to go to school.

Our fabulous rights

The rights are one of the most important things here in West Thornton.


Rights are a list of things that we can’t live without. They protect us from bad things like child labour and bad treatment. Every child has rights but not every child knows them. Some grown ups don’t respect children’s rights so they make them work and sell things to get money.We all have the right to clean food and water but not everyone has food or clean water and they don’t have anything we have.

What we’ve learnt about our Right

We’ve learnt about rights that they are the needs of a child.

Every child under 18 should be respected with these rights.

All children should have their rights, whatever their race, religion, and background.

Every child has the right to life. All children should be able to grow their full potential.

Every child has the right to say what they think and to share there own opinion.

Every child has the right privacy.

We’ve learnt that Every child should be protected and these rights are a big part of it.

What if we didn’t have rights

Without our rights we would not survive because nobody would care about us or protect us.

The most important rights to me include:

the right to be protected from things

the right to nutritious food and clean water

the right to decent shelter

the right to good education

the right to choose our own friends

and the right to share our own opinions.

howwver, I need all of my rights to be happy healthy and safe and so do all the other children in the world.
