THE JOURNEY

There I was in the train,
Far away from the rain,
I’m looking out my window pane,
Then I realised my face was stained

I’m now far away from my home,
I felt like my heart has turned to stone,
On the train I was unknown,
Then I gave a silent moan.

I felt like a trapped cocoon,
As I glance up to the moon,
I hope that very soon,
It would be close to afternoon.

I stepped off the train to the ground,
Then I went to look around,
It was unusual there wasn’t a sound,
I really wanted to scream aloud.

Now I’m here in England forever free,
I can now truly see,
Everything I wanted to be
Right in front of me.

The Journey

There I was standing and staring at the sky
As I heard someone shouting goodbye,

It was mum and dad,
I felt a feeling that I never had.
I tried to smile but they looked so sad.

They told me this might be the last time we’ll meet each other,
But I’ll always remember them forever.

My mum hugged me as she gave me my bag,
I told her that I don’t want to leave as I started to nag.

I don’t want to go away,
I just really want to stay.

I got on the train,
And I felt my pain.

I took one last wave,
As I felt like I was going to a dark cave.

I never wanted to leave my home,
And I never wanted to be alone.

HOME

Running away,
From my home,
Which is getting darker by the moment,
The huge trains,
Carrying us away from war.

The clouds darkened by the minute,
Thunderstorms awoke.
They shook the ground in terror,
However they stopped and slept in the rising clouds,
Then we arrived at our new home.

Dear diary,
I am writing to you because year 5 has visited the Holocaust centre. I loved the Holocaust centre and all the class loved it. The first room we went to was Leo’s living roam. Leo’s living room was spotless and the next room we went to was the classroom. Leo was in this class teacher was cruel to Leo because he was Jewish but he was a polite boy. When he went home he was really upset so his mum made him some soap with bread. Leo loves his mum’s soap because she puts loads of salt on it. The next day at school the teacher gave Leo an D because the teacher hates Jewish people and Leo is Jewish. Because Leo got a D he ran back home and told his mum that the teacher was being rude to him. So Leo’s mum rang the school saying why are you being rude to my son? This better stop or I’ll be rude to you and see how it feels.

Dear Diary,
A few weeks ago, Year 5 went to the Holocaust Centre. We went there to investigate a little further about Leo’s (and some other Jews) lifestyle in the Holocaust. When we arrived (by coach obviously) we were greeted with one unfamiliar adult : Hannah. All of us (maybe not all) were excited about the new features implemented to the Holocaust Centre that we can adventure through as a team.

Report

Dear Diary,
The day started when we got off the coach and arrived at the Holocaust Centre. We went to the Holocaust Centre to investigate more about Leo’s and other survivor’s lives. Firstly, we walked past the path filled with flowers, which were gleaming in the sunlight. We then met our tour guide.

Report

Dear Diary,
On Tuesday 8th June I and my class went on a trip to the National Holocaust Centre. The first thing we did was put are coats and bags in a room so we don’t have to stay holding them wherever we go. We met a woman that reminded us of the story of The Journey and said what the activities we had to do are. Then we went to watch a video about The Journeys around the world. Now my favourite part of the day had started. The teacher put us in different groups of five. In my group I had Kadie, Sara, Ayesha and Layla.

Report

The words on the stone shows the negative effects that we thought could hurt someone verbally. The words on the roses/flowers show all the positive effects that we thought could warm someone's heart. Also the stone represents how Jewish people commemorate those who died in the Holocaust. The roses/flowers represents how non-Jewish people commemorated the deaths in the Holocaust.
