As part of our World Cup theme and the question, 'Is the World fair?' Year 4 have taken some time to look at the work of 'Street Child' and this year's focus 'I am Somebody'. They have worked very hard to create posters which include the slogan 'I am somebody' and have chosen an area that they believe every child has a right to. What do you think every child has a right to?
