Home Learning Task - What if?

For home learning this week the children of Room 7 were asked to think about the following question:
"What if you could travel back in time?"
They were asked to reflect and comment on this question. The following is an example written by Zeenat Ali:

The answer to this question is due to the book I have been reading, Anne Frank's Story. I have been so sad when I read this story that I felt if only this terrible thing known as the Holocaust had never happened. I hate to think how Adolf Hitler had made the entire German people think that Jews were the cause of their problems. Who knows what those 6 million people could have given back to the world in maybe music, art and inventions. Therefore, I would like to travel back in time when Hitler was trying to get power. He wrote his ideas in his book Mein kampf. If I was there,I would try and stop his book from being published. I would also try to get the world's attention and warn them about what Hitler was going to do. He wanted to get rid of the European Jews and sent them to concentration camps. I would try and get people to protest against Hitler and get United States, Britain and other countries to stop him from killing all the people he did. I think it would been wonderful to be at the concentration camps and give food to the starving and save more people from dying. However my mum tells me history is real, gritty and dirty with highs and lows, real people bleeding and maybe something we can do is make sure that there is never another Holocaust and we all respect life even, if we are different from each other.
