My grandparents

My grandparents show lots of the fruits and gifts of the holy spirit and the one that I think they shoe the most is love because they always come to our place to celebrate or just to have dinner. Another one is probably wisdom because they tell me about what it was like when they were children and these are the main two gifts that they show.

Start and Stop Poems

During The Summer

During the summer

the hotness creeps in

under the doors and through the windows

no need for the heater

just lots of air conditioning bills

I drink slurpees on the beach

while swimming in the salty air

during the summer.



After the storm

After the storm

you can still hear the windy breeze

creeping up your spine

you wonder how the storm even came

the electricity has gone

and it is dark and cold

after the storm


If I knew better

If I new Better

I would not have been naughty

my friends might like me

I would not have put my Mum’s Lip Stick all over my face

and I might be on the good list

If I knew better



Through the sums

we use our brains

to get more marks

with the answers

our teacher helps us with our learning

so we know how

to do Division

through the sums



In the spelling test

after 20 or so words

I can’t think anymore

the teacher still has

another 40 words

my brain is clogged

I think why do we

have to do this it’s torcha

In the spelling test


Big idea

Before it explodes

we must take cover

with our blankets

we must wait

as long as it takes we must

be patient

Before it explodes


school reflection

Week 1

the thing that I did well was when I started a really good story because it had lots of describing words and the thing that I need to in prove on is my times tables.

Week 2

I have in proved on my times tables and I got 17/18 in the test and the bad thing was me doing old school in subtraction

Week 3

 in maths I learnt a new way to do division and I need to improve on being on time because I am always late

Week 4

What I learnt was that I can get all of my home work done at the right time and I need to improve on is managing my time better
