Good Morning everyone!
I hope you are all keeping safe and well during this time.
We hope you enjoyed last week’s activities on peace. I enjoyed seeing your projects that you sent me. All those who have sent me photos of your great work, I have sent you a certificate for your hard work. Well done! You can see some of the great work on our school website www.wetns.ie . If anyone else would like to send me any photos of drawings, projects or work they’ve completed on our ethical education themes please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I can share them with our school community.
I wanted to share some links with you about the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. Malala has campaigned tirelessly for equality in education in her country. I have attached a power point below of her story to read together. You can also find information on this link https://kids.kiddle.co/Malala_Yousafzai
You can find her UN speech here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TxT6-uvJKQ
Malala also wrote a beautiful picture book with a lovely message called “Malala’s magic pencil”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSrC-GNbjQg
Chat together and discuss if you had a magic pencil what would you draw? Maybe you could draw a picture of what you would draw to make a better world. I would love to see your drawings or writing, please email them to me to share with everyone.
Over the last few weeks we have been learning lots about peace – finding peace with ourselves through meditation and mindfulness and also learning about people in our world who have worked hard for peace. What do you see when you think about peace? Many people think of special symbols like a dove, holding hands or a candle. Draw a picture of your peace symbol or do a piece of writing. I have attached a template for this if you wish to use it.
