- Think about how the men on the boat would have been feeling as they huddled on the boat on their way to their impending doom.
- Think about words to describe the battleground, what you see, smell, taste, hear. Try to use words that create the mood.
- Now…..Write a first person narrative through the eyes of one of the children or one of the soldiers..

Before you start writing think about the setting and imagine you are there.
The opening sequence of this film swoops across the Normandy landing beaches.
It is to here that we are taken, first we see the eye of a scared soldier and then a group of soldiers huddled together on transport vessels ready for battle. Once discharged they race up the beach – it is at this point that we realise that something isn’t quite right.
Two young boys are caught up in the battle surrounded by pale, paper-faced soldiers.
WALT write a narrative through the eyes of one of the children or one of the soldiers.
Go to this padlet Beyond the LInes and start writing your ideas, words feelings adjectives similies and metaphors.
Once this is completed you can publish it on your personal blog.
Beyond the Lines
28 July 1914, I hop on a boat and we are all crowded in it. We go on a trip for 4 days and then finally we get there. The boat ramp goes down bang, bang, bang, goes the gun. People are getting killed as soon as they come out. BOOM a bomb drops and we all run and hide behind barbed wire.
There were two little kids and they were so scared they came behind me. Then my friend got killed. I run bang , bomb,drop, bang, bang, guns fire but they miss me. I was scared I shot people and they charge at me. I get my knife and kill them. Bang my best buddy goes down and I run. Then bang I get shot, I get transported back home and I go to hospital.
