Welcome to Year 6!
I hope you had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to starting a new year at Holbrook. Our RoK topic unit for the autumn term is called the 'World at War'. In the first half of the term we will be studying WW1, mainly how the war started, joining up, trench warfare, censorship, technology and rememberance. We will study WWII in the second half of the autumn term.
Told in the voice of Private Tommo Peaceful, the story follows twenty-four hours at the front, and captures his memories of his family and his village life – by no means as tranquil as it appeared.
Full of vivid detail and engrossing atmosphere, leading to a dramatic and moving conclusion, Private Peaceful is both a compelling love story and a deeply moving account of the First World War.
