The war is over!

This term, the children in year 6 have loved learning all about World War 2. As a year group we have learnt many things about the war: those involved, those affected and how it all began and much more! We were even lucky enough to go and visit the Coventry Cathedral where we learnt lots about the people in our own town. A highlight for many of us was the Peace Evening. It was so lovely to see so many children and their families come and reflect on the importance of peace in our communities.

Today marked the last day of our topic and although we will be sad to move on, there are exciting times ahead. Can you guess what our next topic might be?

Peace Evening 2018

Last night, we held our annual Holbrook Primary Peace Evening for the children and families of Year 6. It was lovely to see so many members of our community come and remember those who died in World War One and Two with us. To celebrate the peace that we enjoy in this country today, we created a circle of light and took part in a minute silence to reflect.

Thank you to everyone who came and made it a very special night.

RISK

Today we played RISK. We were separated into different country teams, and were given scenarios to discuss and decide the best action to take to defend or benefit our country.
What did you learn it today’s lesson? How might it have been difficult for world leaders, leading up to the outbreak of WW2?

Peace

Last month, Year 6 had a peace evening in school. As part of the evening we created peace doves, bunting and stones to share messages of peace in different languages. Today we hung the doves and bunting up around the school grounds and left the peace stones in the woods for children to find.

See if you can spot our peace messages around school.
