Hi everybody I hope you are all having a nice week.
At school I am studying World War 2 and this week we have been learning about
the children who were evacuated to the country side. Three of us in my class got chosen
to enter a poem competition. I tried to imagine what it would feel like being an evacuee. Here is
When I was evacuated
I was just a little girl in a strange new place.
Everywhere I looked I saw a strange new face
Where am I? Who are they? What can I see?
I saw they were scared Just like me.
No bombs, no sirens, just beautiful birdsong,
I wondered if I'd be there long?
I heard cows, I heard sheep, a buzzing bee,
I wondered if they were scared, just like me.
I felt so scared, I felt so glum,
I really really really, missed my mum.
I wanted to go home yet wanted to stay here,
During the war in the country, I felt less fear.
Thanks for reading my poem see you tomorrow
Love From Rebecca
