*Year 6 promise to be peace-makers this Advent*

Today, our Missio Advent Calendar asked us to think about how we can be

We first considered what ‘peace’ meant. Here are some of the children’s responses:

‘safe’ ‘quiet’ ‘calm’ ‘reflection’ ‘focus’ ‘still’ ‘no fighting’ ‘friendship and love’ ‘undisturbed’

We then considered why peace is important:

  • Gives us thinking time
  • Allows us to spend time in prayer with God
  • Good for our mental and spiritual wellbeing 
  • Improves our relationships with each other and God. 
  • Builds tolerance and unity

We took it in turns to read out our peace-making promises before adding each of them to create a class paper chain.
