Equality and fairness

Equality and fairness

Posted: Wed 18 Apr 2018

This week we have been thinking about what makes things fair. Stella and Leila in Year 6 asked the school council to ask me to do an assembly about equality and I thought it was a brilliant idea and a good way to start the summer term. The children were fantastic in their understanding of how fairness sometimes means helping some peope more than others. I showed the children some pictures to demonstrate this. One picture showed three chidren all trying to look over a fence. They all had a box to stand on but the smallest child still couldn't see over the fence and the tallest child didn't really need the box. Rocco said we should give the tallest child's box to the smallest child so that everyone could see over the fence. Well done Rocco!
