This week we have begun our class debate about graffiti - Is it Art? Some people feel quite strongly about this and there are a number of the class who think it is not!  During topic we have also learnt a little about the Berlin wall which linked very nicely to Friday and 'Holocaust Remembrance Day' For which we wrote some beautiful poems based on the poem 'Auschwitz by Charles N. Whittaker

The semiquaver chugging of the train on the track

And the people on board who will never go back

And the terror in the eyes of the young ones going

As the train comes to slow with no one knowing


Those men at the station as the ramps drop down

Where humanity lost is the only crippled sound

Hope gone for those who stand behind the hard sharp wire

And the smoke in the towers rises just a little higher


And the blue ink stabs a little harder in the skin

Above the veins of despair where murder let it in

And the terror in the eyes of all those about to leave

Another train on the track no last minute reprieve


And the slow, cro..chet  chugging  of  the train on the track;

And the people on board:who will ne..ver  go.




This created some  beautiful and moving poetry.


In English we have carried on with our discussion text and maths has been percentages.
