Please see the left hand links for further details of each year group.

 

The following poem was written by one of our inspiring Year 6 pupils.

Peace

As I lay on the grass

Engulfed by the sun

Another child flees

Their mind racing, their head to a towering gun

 

As I scrutinize my plate and rapaciously devour

Another child shrieks in a perturbed cower

 

I look at my sky vacant of mistake

Yet next to me a world of malice awakes

The streets laden with terror and strife

Explosions fill the air

The screams, the cries, the smell of death

There is nobody to care

 

Why can't we all be together

Galvanised as one

Like the beautiful warmth that you feel

From the rays of a morning sun

 

Let us soothe all the pain

And put out every fire

With the embrace of peace

The world shall soar higher

 

Let our rivers calm the land

Our doves sing in peace

Let war be forgotten for ever

Drowned in our deepest seas.
