Through the story of Matilda, children will explore the right to an education through a variety of investigative activities. They will demonstrate curiosity in discovering aspects about life at Manor Field and be able to solve questions that they have regarding life at junior school. There will be lots of opportunities for discussion and exploration through Circle Time activities, to develop their understanding of the Manor Field attributes and school agreement. In their written work, the children will have the opportunity to write about various aspects of school life and compare these to Matilda’s experiences. By interviewing different people, the children will develop their understanding of a rights respecting education. The children will understand the importance of Articles 19 and 28 and through this will become principled learners. The main aim of this topic is for children to confidently and successfully transition from infant to junior school and begin to understand the importance of the UNCRC.
