Dear Father

I hope you are good father.  I have been very good for mother.  It is hard to know that I can’t see you. I Remember when you told me stories before I went to bed.  In the morning you always made me really happy.  When I was upset or sick you always made me feel better.  I hope you will come home this week or next week.  I really miss you and so does mother and Amy. We love you a lot.

Love

My Great Grandad

Jake wrote this piece to remember his Great Grandad, John Donnelly, who came from Balrothery. Jake also very kindly brought in his Great Grandad’s medals, including a  World War I medal.  The medals were in a lovely box, engraved with a date of December 1914. John had also scratched his initials and his soldier number onto the box.  We are very grateful to Jake’s family for bringing the medals into our class. We remember him and all those who fought in Word War I.

It was as July 1914. My Great Grandad John Donnelly left his family and went to fight for his country.  He was in the British Navy. He was only 17 when he joined. 250,000 young soldiers served in the British army  during WW1. They had to learn how to use the guns and weapons and be ready for battle when they needed to be.  Some young boys lied about their age because they were too young to join.  We must remember all these young boys who were killed in those wars.  I always remember my great grandad and how lucky he was to come home,when others didn’t.

Science Week – Bouncy Egg

On Monday we put an egg into a jar of vinegar. Today, when we took it out, the shell had been eroded away! Vinegar is an acid and the egg shell is made of calcium. The egg’s membrane remained and this made the egg feel rubbery! We were able to bounce the egg on the table!                                                                                DSC_0340 DSC_0341

The Explosion

I was blown back. I couldn’t hear for a minute. I tilted my head to the side. I couldn’t believe what I saw.  My fellow comrades were on the ground, possibly bleeding out. I tried to crawl towards them,but I couldn’t move. I glanced at my leg.It was bleeding heavily. I lay down on the ground, knowing I was going to bleed out soon. I started thinking about my past memories. Back home I remember how I used to go to football matches with my mom and brother. They would be supporting me throughout the match. I was slowly fading away…..

Remember by Rachel B

We walked along the muddy trench hand in hand the sun shining above us.  “You know Joe someday I hope people will remember us as heroes as believers”, I looked at her not surprised at what she had just said because I knew even with her disguise on she had not changed one bit. “I do too” I whispered as I grabbed my gun and started climbing the ladder.  We took our places but a brave face on and lifted our guns.  Suddenly a scream erupted, a girl’s scream. I ran over to her. “Remember me” she said “Remember me”……………

My Great Grandad
MY Great Grandad was in the war. He was a soldier and then he became a captain. My Nana likes to remember him in his uniform, she said he was very handsome. I have seen pictures, he is holding a big gun and has medals on his jacket. He looks very serious but my Nana says he was a great father and was a very kind man. He lost his best friend called Paddy, he got shot in the head, my Great Grandad was very sad about this. I think all wars should be banned because lots of innocent people die.

Remember by Sophie (100 Word Challenge)

I said goodbye to family. “Don’t worry this war won’t last 6 months.” I said, as I left. My mother hugged me, her tear stained face pressed against mine.

I sat in the army bus filled to the brim with young men like me. Some were crying and others singing “Its a long way to Tipperary.” I knew when we reached English soil it truely would be long way from Tipperary.

When we reached England, I stepped out the stuffy boat we were in, and breathed in the fresh air. “Remember,” I thought, ” only 6 months”.

We set off to Flander’s field.
