Congratulations to staff from our early years subject team, Erica Evans, Kath Taylor and Deborah Price on the recent release of their new resource pack titled ‘First steps: Activities to explore human rights with 3-5 year olds’.
The EYITT team were approached by Amnesty International and asked to develop a teaching pack for early year’s practitioners, similar to the primary pack already in circulation to help make the Human Rights Act and its principles accessible to under 5’s. The team developed the pack, made links to the EYFS (of the four nation states of the UK) and piloted it in a range of settings in the UK.
It’s the perfect starting point to engage children in discussion and raise awareness of their own rights in a fun and interactive way.
