Today it is display day so we have been doing lots of artwork for our displays! Our first activities were, drawing charcoal pictures of Auschwitz this was fun, writing poems about Auschwitz, writing a diary of a Jews life and making paper flowers.
Our second activities were, drawing reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and fish and creating microbes out out of plastacine.
Our third activities were, write ups of sections from Rose Blanche, for example a diary of a little boy who was almost shot, Rose following a truck and the town evacuating. And also picture frames of the town, wood, camp. And also build up cards of WW2.
Throughout the day we have been painting pop art pictures of WW2 leaders.

La Fille Mal Gardee,
Year 6 went to the Royal Opera House to watch a ballet performance to help us with our music. It was about a young girl who wanted to marry a normal farm boy but her mother wanted her to marry the son of a rich man. All ended happy of course, as she married the normal farm boy.
After the performance we focused on the chicken dance, which was a part of the performance. We had a competition; we put our chicken dances to the test....
Take a look at the music blog for further information.
We wrote poems about Anne Frank and other Jewish people.
family crowded in the room like a swarm of piranhas
snapping with their sharp canines trying to get the first bite of prey.
If i had,committed a crime i would fully understand,
but i have done nothing wrong except being my own self.
I feel imprisoned here because of this tiny room.
I dreamed of a new world before the war
but that didn't happen for me.
