Our Christian value this half term is 'peace'.
1. A situation or a period of time in which there is no war or violence in a country or an area.
2. The state of being calm or quiet.
3. The state of living in friendship with somebody without arguing.
(Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary)
Can you think of a time when you have felt peaceful?
Can you think of a time when you have resolved a conflict peacefully?
Can you imagine a world without war, violence or arguing? What do you think it would be like?
In the Bible, Jesus tells us to be peacemakers.
Remembrance Day (Armistice Day)
Our Christian value of peace is a befitting value to consider when we observe Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month (November), in 1918.
Each year, a two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.
People wear poppies to remember all those whose have fought and died or been injured in all wars in the past and recent times.

The rainbow: A symbol of hope.
If we persevere through difficult times like the current lock down, we will eventually see better times and be able to see our friends and families again.
This is why the rainbow is seen as a symbol of hope - after or during the rain when the sunshine appears sometimes we see a beautiful rainbow reminding us that there is hope in every difficult situation we face.
Rainbows to show how grateful we are to our wonderful NHS...
Rainbows painted by the children of key workers in school!
And some created at home!
Showing our support for those who work for the NHS and sharing hope and happiness within our community...
'God puts rainbows in the clouds
so that each of us - in the dreariest
and most dreaded moments - can
see a possibility of hope.'
Mary Angelou (American poet)
