Our Visit to Roslin War Memorial

On Wednesday 13th of October the class went to Roslin War Memorial. I have written a report to tell you a bit about the Memorial.

How far it is from Roslin School

If you walk through the park out of the school, keep walking till you get to a passage way with a big bush. Then at the end of the passage way youwill be at the Main Road. If you cross the road as if you are going to Rosslyn chapel. You will arrive at the War Memorial. The street it is on is called penicuik Road.

What it looks likes

The Memorial is made of little grey stones. The cross at the top is made up of celtic patterns. The memorial is a trianglar spaced wall. The cross sits on top of the trianglar spaced Wall. On the front of the trianglar wall is loads of men’s names, who died in the (1914-1918) War. Their names are carved on the top part of the memorial. On the bottom of the memorial there are men’s names that died in the second World War (1939- 1945). There were paths beside the memorial and really well looked after flowers. There is a really tall hedge behind the memorial.
 
Number of men that fought for us
 
When I counted there were 55 men that fought in the first world war and from the second there were 29 names. I don’t think anyone was related to me. But someone had the same name as my nana and grandad.
 
How I felt
 
It was an emotional feeling reading all these names and thinking that they came from the same place as me. They didn’t even have a chance to live their lives.
 
Thank You
 
I hope you enjoyed my report and that you will go and see the War Memorial for yourself.

Over the last few months I have built up confidence and I have had fun. Lewis

I have become louder and clearer and I can perform in front of an audience. Aaron

Now I am a lot more confident in front of an audience. Dean

I am sure that next year the P7s will love it as much as we did. Dylan

I have learnt all my lines but I though I could never learn all of them! Lewis

I have learnt all my lines and I couldn’t wait until the Launch Day! Cameron

The poppy fields of France

This is a picture to represent what the soldiers saw each day when they were at war in 1914 – 1918 and it made them think of home. It was also the first flower that grew after the war ended.

Our school CD

On Monday we went into the hall and the school sang a song  for the cd.  I enjoyed it because I like singing.

We did ‘I can sing a rainbow’, ‘I  know an old lady’, ‘How  much is that doggy in that window’.  It was fun.

Fireworks

We painted bonfire pictures and made rockets for bonfire night. We also wrote a poem.

 

     FIREWORKS

Flames from the fire are crackling

I wrap up warm on bonfire night

Rockets fly into the air

Exploding fireworks sparkle in the dark

We all have hot chocolate

OOOOOh says everyone

Red fireworks explode in the sky

Keep pets indoors

                                                                                                         Sparklers are the best
