We have been looking at the UN Charter of Children's rights.I learnt this week that the children have the right to be free and safe from kidnapping. I interviewed Ms Noreen to find out what the law is in Singapore. I found out that you are not allowed to kidnap in Singapore. If you kidnap you are sent to jail or fined, or both. The government and police is responsible for this right.
I will find out what the law are to keep children safe in Philippines by interviewing my parents over the weekend.
I noticed we have laws because children are supposed to grow up and learn more things. So the laws are important to keep the children safe. The Article of the right to choose your own friends is interesting because when you are lonely you can find a friend yourself. We are responsible for this right.
Another fun thing we did in our class was - in our classroom we were learning about conflict. We did role plays about conflict. We had to choose between win/win or lose/lose situations.
My partner was Lucy. we were doing win/win and Hagen and Jingjong were doing lose/lose. Our plan was to act like we were playing a board game and telling each other where to go. The win/win was that we would have a little problem and solve it.
The way lucy and I solved our problem was that Lucy said we will go wherever we want on the board game.
I learnt from this activity that you can have a peaceful solution to every problem.
I cooperated with Lucy to make a plan. We listened to each other. To make it better next time, we could think of more ideas. Hagen and Jingchong worked well.
Below N and M show us a lose/lose situation to a conflict on the playground.
This week I liked Math the most because I learned a new strategy to add called Break apart. It is a very easy way to add. I was doing Break Apart so fast (because it was SO EASY TO DO IT!!!!)
