International Day of Peace – Thursday 21st September 2017

Today Year 5 have been learning all about peace. We have been exploring peace around this year’s theme: Together for Peace – Respect, Safety & Dignity for all.

Within this we have learnt about the story of Yusra and Ishak who managed to overcome diversity and war to achieve and further their quality of life through the help of the United Nations.

We completed spider diagrams to show what peace was to us, as well as creating our own posters to celebrate the day.

We got to sit in a Lecture Room at the Scott Polar Research Institute.. just like university students!
