Our U14 girls football team really enjoyed playing in the English Schools FA Competition. It was a close match decided on penalties (nail biting!) with HAB girls through to the next round. Well done everyone! Full report https://t.co/3iNc45tlOV https://t.co/J57VUV20lB

The Harris Peckham Nursery Hub is possibly the most amazing innovation I’ve heard of. Free nursery care for disadvantaged families, 51 weeks a year, all day, meals included. What a wonderful thing!

Highlight of the day; being given an amazing sheet of biology key words/concepts. I was off task and used this sheet to highlight schema connections between biology and physics... https://t.co/nbLapR0F8Y

World War II Documents Inspire Poetry

Year 8 and 9 students recently toured London Metropolitan Archives and explored key records from World War II, before writing some outstanding poetry inspired by the maps, letters and government documents which they'd seen.

London Met Archives (1)

We're really #ProudToBeHAB of our students' poems so here are a few for you to enjoy too.


Lives shattered again.

Empty feelings, empty homes,

Nothing is the same.

 

School are deserted,

Cannot heal the broken wounds,

Tears are now falling.

 

Bells are ringing out,

Debris is covering land,

Smoke is everywhere.

 

Train hooting away,

Children climbing up aboard,

Hope is evident.

 

Tiffany


Children’s screams and cries

Rather face bombs than this pain

Rations can’t fill voids

 

London in chaos

Hope is but a fantasy

Rubble the man’s grave

 

States of constant fear

Gas masks an accessory

Faces stained with tears

 

Zahra


London in Pieces

Bang. Bombs drop on our city

Everything is lost!

 

Evacuation,

Children escape to safety

Alone and confused.


Amy


Choking for air,

Yet it’s not the smoke which chokes me.

Pain erupts inside me,

Yet it’s not no longer the bomb which pains me.

The sun rising above,

Is but a mockery, another day without you.

The child-sized void inside me,

No matter how many rations still starves me.

This gas mask, my only accessory.

 

Although I miss you, I won’t let you back.

Despite my pain, you cannot get hurt

And I love you so much that I won’t let you be with me.

 

Zahra

 


The coast is clear now,

My lights away from me.

Can I get them back?

Every depressing breath that escapes my abysmal figure,

Is a reminder of my tedious existence, without them.

 

My flag stands upright.

We have not succumbed,

Yet our world is now wilting,

Our flag stands upright.

Through our rationing,

Through our fog,

Through our forlorn suffocation,

Our flag stands upright.

 

The gas condenses my anger.

My friends have lift, I stay.

I yearn for my past,

Though it may be tainted

But my flag miraculously remains.

My orders are clear, my actions intent.

A large, sinister force rips from

The control of my plane,

Ashes. Flames. Screams.

The soundtrack of my journey,

I plan to destroy the flag that still manages to stand upright,

To usurp it of its production of moral.
