This week, we celebrated Remembrance in our classroom by visiting the war memorial at Wicklewood Church. We researched each of the 14 men and women who died during both WW1 and WW2. We then made a poignant poppy for each of the fallen and a poppy wreath, which we laid on behalf of the school. For further photos, see our class gallery.
During this week, we also finished writing our own collaborative Remembrance sonnets. After reading Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare and a modern sonnet, we realised sonnets were and are often written about strong feelings and themes. So we decided writing a sonnet about remembering the war dead as this would fit well. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing in iambic pentameter using a rhyming pattern of abab, cdcd, efef, gg. Please read some of our sonnets below:
