International Day of Peace

Today, was the international day of peace. Throughout the week, we learned about what peace is and what it means to live in safety and without fear. We also looked at the symbol for peace, the dove. We discussed what we knew about the word ‘peace’. Children discussed that we are peaceful in this school and we should try and help everyone live in a peaceful place. We discussed that the dove as a symbol represents peace for the animals and humans.  The children came together for a minute of silence while holding hands to think about those who perhaps don’t have peace or to think how lucky they are to know they have peace. We also made artwork based around the dove.
