Remembrance Day in 5JS

We have been looking at Remembrance in our literacy work this week.

Today we read the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae and then added our own verses. Here are some of our stanzas.

in-flanders-fieldsRemember us, who fought for you,

Through rain and rain, loud gunshots blew,

As poppies grow, they mark our place,

While we rest in a dusty case,

Next to each other, two by two.

 

In Flanders fields we bravely died,

We saw big fields lay side by side,

We saw sunsets fade, now we lie

In Flanders Fields.

By Aniqah, Umar, Lachey and Armaan

 

Remember us who fought for you, Maybe think what you now could do,

Help us or the poppies won’t grow,

Remember us who die for you,

We die for love so you can live

In Flanders Fields.

By Charley, Younas, Hamse and Aisha

 

Remember us who fought for you,

Now I think you should do it too.

Our army fought as a crew,

After we died, poppies grew,

After the war, the sky turned blue

In Flanders Fields.

By Mahnoor, Raheel, Zakariya, Zareen, Balraj and Zain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gangsta granny book review Sarah & Shahjea

Gangsta Granny

The book is about a young boy called Ben that thinks his granny is really boring however he learns about her past and is stunned. All granny likes to do is play scrabble and eat cabbage soup.As well as that Bens parents want him to be a ballroom dancer although he wants to be a plumber.While the story progresses the bond between the elderly lady and the 11 year old boy grows stronger.At first Ben thinks his Granny is boring but then he realises that Granny is the best in the world. David Walliams has allowed children to feel the feelings of the characters in this magical story.

Funny moments

The funny moments was when Granny did naked yoga and that she is always blowing a raspberry and she does not know that she is doing it. Their are a range of sad parts as well as funny like when bens parents are upset as they think he has ran away.

In literacy we have been reading an e-book ‘The Museum of Fun’. The museum wasn’t attracting sufficient visitors so we were asked to create adverts to persuade more people to visit. Which advert do you think is the most persuasive? Please add comments to help us improve our performances.

Farwa and Iqra pizza rap

Come on everybody, let’s hear you clap,
Cos we’re gonna do the pizza rap.

Making a pizza is really fun ,
Pop the peppers until they mush,
Cut the tomatoes until they’re hush,
Chop the onions until they crush.

Grate the big cheese in the grater,
It’ll be done sooner or later.

Come on everybody,let’s hear you clap,
Cos we’re gonna do the pizza rap.

After that, put it in the oven,
Make that it’s already shoven,
Tidy away because you are done!

Awais Amira rap

Come on everyone, let’s hear you clap,
We’re gonna do the animal rap.

Bears eat honey,but they get runny
Bunnies eat carrots, before it’s sunny

Dogs bark,lions roar, chicks sing before it’s dawn
Sheeps baa, cheaters cheat, hippos snoor until they yawn

Come on everyone, let’s hear you clap ,
We’re gonna do the animal rap.

Monkeys eat bananas but there odd,
Ducks flap until they nod.
