ARP (Air Raid Precaution) by Theo

Posted in Writing we do at school, WW2

These instructions will show you how to stay safe in an air raid. Remember to stay calm and go to the nearest shelter (or house if possible). If you are too late, think differently because you can either lie flat on the ground or find the nearest ditch or hole.

If you are in a house remember to make your refuge room as safe as possible by doing things like:

  • Taping up your windows
  • Make barricades to stop your door from flying in
  • Turn off all light sources (also known as a blackout)
  • Wait and listen for the air raid siren
  • Make the location of your refuge room in the basement or facing your garden
  • Take lots of food and drinks as you don’t know how long you will be in there

And remember, as long as you follow these instructions (and the sign) you will survive the Blitz.

War Is Declared by Theo

Posted in Writing we do at school, WW2

The coals had nearly burnt their last spark when suddenly, the wireless crackled to life.

It was Neville Chamberlain “I am broadcasting from 10 Downing St…”

Mum definitely knew what was coming but the main thing she was worried about was Jimmy “what if he was to go to war “.

…Hitler has refused to withdraw his troops so we had no other choice but to declare war with Germany”. That was the moment they had all been dreading, the moment that they had been hoping would never come but at least they knew that they were prepared for what was coming. That day world peace was broken and nearly all hope was lost and the last spark in the fireplace had gone out. As the National anthem played, (also known as God saved the Queen) they all stood up. No one wanted another world war mostly because of the last war and all of the millions of men that had lost their lives while fighting for their country, but there was no turning back now.

The Blitz by Theo

Posted in Poetry, Writing we do at school, WW2

London falls silent,

Waiting for the hell of Hitler’s making.

Waiting for the death and destruction

Of the city.

Families wait for what could be their final days.

The bombers arrive at the crack of dawn,

Ready to destroy city after city.

Searchlights light up the blood lit dawn,

While the barrage balloons get ready to snag And rake at the Germans

To salute our glorious victory.

Hanging over the heart of Britain

The city screams for someone to stop it,

Someone to bring Hitler to his defeat.

  • Steel
  • Ice
  • Water
  • Fire
  • Leaf
  • Electric
  • Dragon
  • Psychic
  • Fighting
  • Dark
  • Ghost
  • Flying
  • Poison

The magical world of Pokemon also holds many secrets that are always being uncovered.

The main four Pokemon are: Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur.

I love Pokemon and these are some of the basics.
