*UPDATED* Article of the week 2.7.21 Right to play

As you know Twiss Green are working towards the Rights Respecting School Award. One of our targets is for the teachers and children to learn about the different articles of the convention. This page will be updated each week with a new 'Article of the Week' for us to learn about and explore. 
 
2.7.21  Article 28 - The Right to Play
 
This is the final Right of the Week for this academic year which focuses on sport and Article 31 which links nicely to this next week's 'Sports Week' at Twiss Green!

Sport can impact on children's lives in lots of difference ways. From new skills, friendships, physical and mental well-being through to the impact that events like the Olympics and Paralympics has on lives of children in the countries that host them.
