This week in Creative Writing we have been thinking about Remembrance.
Children were asked to think about those who have been affected by war and write about how they might be feeling. Below are some extracts from their writing.
“People say you will get over it in a few weeks but it has been months and still going. When I’m sad, he’s never there to help me. When people talk about their dads, I can’t. When I want to talk to my dad, I can’t. It’s not fair but someday I know I will meet him again.” Aimee (Year 4).
“As I was asleep in my soft bed, I began talking to my husband but no answer came. I woke up and realised that he wasn’t here anymore but was fighting in the war. I began to get dressed and eat my breakfast when the phone began to ring but no answer came…” Liba (Year 6).
“The girl’s heart filled with sorrow. She was so upset because her friend was not there, he was fighting in the war. Suddenly she saw him but when she tried to touch him she couldn’t, he was just a memory” Abigail (Year 4).
