Remembrance Day Letter


Posted by dannyt1415 | Posted in Language Arts | Posted on November 28, 2014

tankDear Veteran,

Thank you for keeping countries safe and fighting for peace and freedom.  I wear a poppy to remember the soldiers that died in war. Thank you for saving us from dying in war.  Thank you for saving Canada and other countries.Thank you for fighting other soldiers.

The Peace Tower found in Ottawa has fifty-three bells that arplanee rung on Remembrance Day. The Book of Remembrance and the Memorial Chamber are found in the Peace Tower.  The National War Memorial in Ottawa has twenty-five soldiers standing on top of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and two figures stand above the twenty-five soldiers.

We also read the book A Poppy Is to Remember.  The book discussed soldiers fighting in World War One, which was called the Great War.  We also listened to Reville, which is played at the beginning of a Remembrance Day Assembly.  The Last Post is played at the end of the assembly.

We made clay poppies.  It was very enjoyable.   We sang, “Just One Candle,’’ for the Remembrance Day Assembly. I enjoyed the song, ‘’In Flanders Fields,’’and I enjoyed when the Grade Seven’s used the drums. We listened to ‘’A Pittance of  Time.”  It was  about a girl that puts her head down in a store with her dad to remember the soliders.  We bowed our head in two minutes of silence. I enjoyed when the trumpet was played over the speakers.  It sounded wonderful.  We listened to a Bryan Adams song about remembering the soldiers.  Thank you for serving our country.


Yours Truly,

Nice work, Danny! Your letter shows your understanding of the importance of Remembrance Day. You included some interesting facts about Remembrance Day. Keep working on expanding your ideas. This will make your writing more interesting and sound less choppy. I also enjoyed the Grade Seven’s performance playing the drums also. Keep working hard, Danny!
