Binoculars in hand, the man gleefully, yet depressingly waved his tattered handkerchief round and around to catch the eyes of his son. Body shaking, hands shaking and mouth dry. Trying so hard the man was to see his son for the first time since 1961. Hope was losing his body. Eventually after rapid waving a frown came to the poor man’s face as he realised that his son had forgot. Forgot all about him.
Tears fell down his face as his hands felt like they were in a trance of fear.
I woke up this morning to find a wire that separated me from my friends, my family. I woke up my friend, Sabrina, remembering that I had slept the night at hers. Mama…would I see her again? I knew there was something wrong.
After we had breakfast I asked Mrs. Forman if I could go home I wanted to talk to my mum, and like always she said that I could BUT I had to go with Sabrina. We left the house at exactly 10.00 am. Outside a sight came to my eyes that changed my life forever.
I’m writing here in 1961 Saturday at 10:00am looking at a great wall sitting in the middle of quiet, street causing a massive fuss as the guards push the people away I’m writing here hoping nothing will affect me. As I hear bangs from about 6 miles away to stop them climbing the blood full wall. I am scared. I don’t know what to do people taking metal objects out of my garden my whole family up stairs protecting themselves from the gun shots nearby while I’m writhing here on my ripped seat staring at the people trying to cross the life taking wall .
In Year 5 we have been exploring rivers in our ‘Water’ topic and we thought it would be nice to have the opportunity to challenge our visitors on their knowledge of this area when they visit us for our memorable event. We decided to create some interactive quizzes to showcase what we know using Quizlet and Educaplay. Please follow the links to our work so you can get some practice in before the big day!
