CHILDREN CAN CHOOSE!
So many decisions are made on children's behalf and always for their best interests. However, it is really important that children feel they have a voice.
Giving children a voice promotes self esteem and self worth. By giving children a voice through choice, opinion, feelings and emotions children can develop and learn that they are important and valued. Feeling valued plays a large role in how a child learns. In order for them to play and explore, actively learn and critically think the need to feel confident in their environment and have the knowledge that their voice and way of explorations will be noted.
CHILDREN CAN CHOOSE AT ST PETER'S SCHOOL
How do we give children the chance to have their voice heard?
The school would like to support children's charities. But which one of the many should we support? We asked the children which children's charities they know about and would like to support and then the class voted on which they would like to support. We then asked the children how they would like to raise money for these charities. They gave their ideas to the RRSA Team to feed back to the staff. These were some of the charities they wanted to support. Which would you choose? Let us know!
