I am sad, I am afraid
Will I die or will I stay?
People die and cry out loud…
Them poppies started to grow
Blood gone without a trace.
The war is over yippy yippy yay!
Now we remember the soldiers who died,
But don’t you cry.
Daniel – year 5
Amongst the muddy stone cold trench walls,
The gun shots fire away.
Bloody murder bones and gore, noise throughout the nights and days,
4 years of absolute torture.
I still quiver at the thought.
Of going back into the war.
It left me distraught.
Abbie – year 6
I have no future,
No hope for life,
I will never see my children or wife again,
This tunnel is endless,
With no light at the end
For my country I have to kill and defend and with sin on my shoulders,
I have to confess.
I really have got myself in a deep deep mess.
I won’t come back, not in one piece.
Tell everyone….even my niece.
Barnaby – year 6
The soldiers fought a battle what made use today.
The soldiers fought every day for four years.
The soldiers drove tanks to win the war.
The soldiers used the guns in the trenches to defend the ones they loved.
Now today we thank he soldiers for the world today.
So thank you soldiers for today.
Josh year 6
I sit here weeping, waiting for you,
To come back to me
I miss you so badly, I can barely breathe.
We are living safe compared to you.
Your sisters are worried just like me
When you come home, as I know you will.
I’ll give you a hug and some chocolate.
When your loving hands touch mine.
I will be feeling full of glee.
The family loves you keep that in mind.
Your adventure continues with those you will find.
I feel so bad I can’t help you much.
I also miss your gentle touch…..
Max – year 6
The guns stopped and the tanks stopped driving That was 100 years ago.
We remember the soldiers that fought for us the solider that fought for our country.
The poppies bloomed in the battle field and that is why we wear that flower.
The 11th hour of the 11th month was when the guns fell silent.
That was 100 years ago.
It’s been two years since I’ve last seen your face.
I long for this war to end….
I hope a bullet doesn’t hit you in the head.
My life is dull and scary with you not here.
When you come back please don’t be killed or injured.
I miss you beyond anything you know…
Alfie- year 6
Today is 100 years of peace in our home land;
Today is 100 years of not a single gunshot in our home land!
100 years ago today we made peace with our enemy, by 100 years ago today I lost part of my family and also part of me…
Caroline year 4
During the first world war, soldiers kepy fighting while pigeons were flying.
The soldiers moaned
As others groaned
While horses whined
No Germans with kind
The awful guns kept firing until they were stopped.
Today we remember the poppies that grew and the soldiers that died.
Jack year 5
Dear friend my life has taken a horrible bend.
All my friends I made at war,
Let’s just say I don’t know no more.
All I want is for you and me,
To be as happy as can be.
We could be so happy,
To finally have more family.
I wanted to say I love you.
And to the war I say shoo
Hope you live a happy life,
Because mine will end tonight.
