The 20th November is Universal Children's Day and it marks the day in which the Convention of the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989.  

"Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment and education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this."

To mark this day in our class, we looked at the right that is above. We discussed what we thought it meant and also if we agreed with it. These are some of our thoughts:

"Having homes is important because you would want to be in a place that is safe." Thea

"Poor people suffer and get ill from dirty water.  I think rich people should help poor people so they are healthy." Amelia & Melody

"I think children should be healthy and strong so that they can run around." Bethany

"Everyone must have food and clean water." Callum & Toby
