  • Hello everyone,

     

    Last lesson, we wrote the poem In Flanders fields and then we explained the vocabulary and the poet's intentions. Then you had to memorise the vocabulary.

     

    In Flanders Fields

     

    By John McCrae

     

     

     

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow

     

    Between the crosses, row on row,

     

    That mark our place; and in the sky

     

    The larks, still bravely singing, fly

     

    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

     

     

     

    We are the Dead. Short days ago

     

    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

     

    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

     

    In Flanders fields.

     

     

     

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:

     

    To you from failing hands we throw

     

    The torch; be yours to hold it high.

     

    If ye break faith with us who die

     

    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

     

    In Flanders fields.

     

     

    Today, we started our poster about the poem. We decided how to interpret the different parts of the poem.

    Why do British people wear poppies for remembrance day ?

     

    A poppy is a bright red flower which quickly dies. These flowers grew in battlefields after the first world war : there were thousands in the trenches.

    Now people wear a poppy on their chests/hearts to show their respect to those who died. The red colour symbolizes blood and the uniform of the Royal army.

    People pay about one pound (or they can give a more generous donation) to wear their poppy with pride. (they are proud to wear thier poppies). The money is given to associations for veterans but also women who are widows and orphans.

    Today, you started working on Remembrance day. Your mindmap is in your copybooks and you will need to answer a question for next Monday (26/11) : Why do British people wear a poppy on November 11th?
