Pinks and Blues

Today, as part of our Equality & Diversity Week, we have considered the issue of Gender Equality.  Again the children have been thinking about similarities and differences and learning that we all deserve equal opportunities, man or woman, boy or girl.  


The children were very surprised to learn that years ago, girls weren't allowed to go to school!  I was very happy to note that they all found this disappointing rather than wishing it were still true!


We also considered whether there should be such a thing as 'girls toys' and 'boys toys'.  Why not just 'toys' (and why are so-called girls toys all so pink!)?
