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.

Monday, November 26th (the twenty-sixth) 2018
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.
