Remembrance Day Poetry

Remembrance Day Poetry

In honour of Remembrance Day a few weeks ago, our students have written some beautiful poems.

During the week leading up to Remembrance Day, the history department delivered assemblies on the significance of wearing the poppy and the contribution of soldiers from the Commonwealth in both World Wars.

Pupils were asked to write poems about Remembrance and it was very hard to judge a winner from all the entries. Our winner and all runners up received gift vouchers.

Runners up:

Callum Osborne Year 7

Tybah Noor Year 7

Jovany Djedje Year 7

Jannaat Mazhar Year 8

Huzaifah Wadee Year 8

Our winner was Zain Iqbal in Year 10 with the below poem.

 

Remembrance Day, Remembrance Day

When we will remember

The soldiers who paved the way

So that we can live our lives today

 

They died for our protection

They did it in perfection

 

Them Germans learnt their lesson

A lot of people lost their lives

Strong men who could not be revived

 

With no fear in their heart

Given everything they had

It was their time to depart

Goodbye soldiers, thank you for everything

Now a two minute silence when we hear that bell ring
