We shared the brilliant story about how Jelly Babies were once named peace babies! Did you know these tasty sweets were invented to celebrate the end of WW1? The different colours represented the countries that had fought throughout WW1 and the sweets were all placed in one bag – showing that everyone can live alongside each other happily and be a part of the same world. Look out in school for our own version of Peace Babies coming soon!
We began the week by introducing our theme for the term;
“Pass the Peace Please.”
The children were asked to think of other words to use as synonyms for peace. They suggested; love, Christian Values, hope, joy, calm.
We discussed how all those words can be used as synonyms for peace and over the course of the term we will be looking at how we can help to ensure we live in a peaceful place, be that the school, town, country, continent or world. Given that we are all earthlings ( this was debated) we must seek to recognise and understand our similarlites, whilst also recognising, tolerating and celebrating our differences.
Our assembly theme for this term is;
“Pass on the Peace”
In assembly we will be thinking about how we can promote peace in our school, our local area, our country and our world.
We will be posting our thoughts here each day.
Each week our 5p Friday scheme is used to raise money towards our sponsored child – Arjuma Mondol – through the World Vision scheme.
