To celebrate International Peace day the children in the Butterflies room were involved in a group time where they were asked the questions ‘What is Peace?’ and ‘How can we spread Peace?’
The questions were then open for discussion as the children all had a turn of giving their suggestions and opinions.
Some of the children’s responses:
Chloe: ‘Peace is being nice’.
Valerie: ‘When I’m nice to my friends’.
Isaac: ‘When I share’.
Finn: ‘When I don’t shout and when I listen’.
Once all of the children had a chance to share what they thought peace was the Educators in the room also voiced their opinions.
Linking to the framework:
L/O 1 .1.1: Children feel safe secure and supported.
L/O 1. 1.4: Children learn to interact in relation to others with care, empathy
L/O 2. 2.3 Children become aware of fairness.
L/O 4. 4.1: Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence,
creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity.
