Harry's Poem

On Monday 14 September Harry brought home the Writer's Award trophy for writing the following sensory poem. Writing is Harry's least favourite time of the day and this is the first time he's ever actually sat down and written his own poem!

I see grey rocks hidden in the dirt
I hear screaming children playing on the playground
I feel green grass on the field tickling me
I smell flowers sweet and swell
I taste the sweet air on my tongue.

We have a new trampoline!

Harry's Speech

Birthdays Are Fun
By Harry

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you

Do you like people singing to you? I do!

I believe everyone should have birthday parties. I have three reasons.

You can have lots of fun by doing special things like going to Rainbow's End. Also, you can go to the movies, go swimming or ice skating.

You can have lots of food like cake. I like chips and nuggets and giving goodie bags with treats to give to my friends to take home.

You can invite friends that don't usually come to your home. You also get lots of presents.

For these reasons - having fun, going to special places, having lots of yummy food and spending time with your friends - I believe that everybody should have birthday parties.
