Spellings Week 6

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This month's Global Goal is 'Peace and Justice Month'.

 

We celebrate this goal by looking at significant people around the world in our past and present whom have been role models and have promoted equality. 

 

We were very privileged to have met a motivational speaker named 'Siya Twani' who came in and took our school assembly at the start of the month. He spoke to the children about the meaning of equality and the importance of acceptance and respect to others. He shared events from history which shows why Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King are role models.

  

Here are two stories you can share with your child/children to help their understanding of peace and equality; to start discussions on fairness;

  • https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=martin+luther+king+for+kids&&view=detail&list=xcN0DsMXaQ9OJA&FORM=VRPPLA

 

Ask the following questions;

How can you bring love and peace to your circle of friends and family? 

How can we promote peace and respect in our school and local community? 

 

Kind regards
