Year 6 RE - The Christmas Truce

Published

Football in the snow

No matter where we find ourselves, at home, at school or with friends there are always opportunities to build harmony and peace.  Year 6 have been learning about how British and German soldiers at war with each other found opportunities to make peace and celebrate the birth of Jesus. The children in 6RP imagined they were soldiers in the trenches during the Christmas period.  They role-played and then wrote letters home to their families. The children produced some thoughtful and reflective pieces. Some even made Miss Jones cry! See one of the letters below.
