Peace Week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

The Writing Process

I am learning to
  • write a report
  • I will know that I am successful when I have
  • helped my audience to know a lot about something (how to keep safe in the sun).
  • Included many important topic words.



We were writing about sun safety. To help us develop our ideas we made a sun safety collage: we had to protect the stick figure from the sun. This helped us with our ideas for our writing.
