Year 6 are studying 'Peace' as part of their PSHEE curriculum, and have made posters inspired by the Japanese story of Sadako Sasaki .

“Sadako Sasaki (January 7, 1943 – October 25, 1955) was a Japanese girl who was 2 years old when an American atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, near her home next to the Misasa Bridge. Sasaki became one of the most widely known hibakusha – a Japanese term meaning "bomb-affected person". She is remembered through the story of the one thousand origami cranes she folded before her death, and is to this day a symbol of the innocent victims of nuclear warfare.” wikipedia
