Private Peaceful

We will be completing a novel study based on the Michael Morpurgo title – Private Peaceful.  We will be investigating the lives of soldiers and their families who lived through World War 1 and the historical period of the time.  We will explore the use of persuasion in the recruitment of soldiers, listening to poetry of the time, studying the geographical locations of the conflict in Europe, making Cross Stitch cards and singing songs from the time of World War 1. This unit relates well to Remembrance Day in November.
