Reception - Year 6 Assembly

On Friday 21st September it is the International Day of Peace. This morning in assembly we discussed what `peace` means, we thought about how we as individuals can make a difference. 

This special day began on the 21st September 1981and was organised by the United Nations General Assembly. 

What is the United Nations (UN)?

The United Nations organisation was formed after the Second World War ended. Neighbouring countries could no longer trust one another, and there was no peace. In 1945, representatives from 51 countries met in San Francisco, USA. The representatives signed an important document which agreed to keep peace around the World. Membership to the UN is open to all peace-loving states, there are currently 193 nations that are members. One of the main UN offices is found in Geneva, here in Switzerland.
We enjoyed reading the book, `Five Minutes` Peace`. We talked about what peace looks like, feels like, smells like and sounds like to different people, and we thought about how we can help create a culture of peace in our own environments. 
The children in Year 1 - Year 6 then worked in groups to write an acrostic poem about peace.
Promises mean peace
Everyone is quiet
An act of kindness creates a new, more peaceful planet for everyone
Come together to make World Peace
End war
