Thanks to Years 5, 6 and 7 who observed a minute’s silence in this afternoon’s assembly hosted by Mounts in memory of everyone who has ever taken part in a war. The assembly featured much of the work on World War One that is already published on this blog.
We move on from World War One to study Recount texts next. If you have any comments about Michael Foreman’s The War Game do feel free to write something in the Book Talk section of the blog. I think the ending surprised and shocked many of us. You can read more about Michael Foreman on this Puffin Books page: http://www.puffin.co.uk/nf/Author/AuthorPage/0,,1000010989,00.html#BIO
