My Dream

My DreamLast night I had a funny dream,I blew up my balloon,Then held on tight, jumped into space,And landed on the moon.The people there looked very strange,Three eyes and one green nose.They had six legs and walked like crabs,With corks instead of toes.They showed me all around the place,Then gave me things to eat,A nasty drink that looked like ink,And funny tasting meat.They said,"Now come and see our king,He's grand- his nose is red."I said, "No thanks," and shut my eyes,And woke up home in bed.Jeanette Lingard.

My Other Jandal

Here we are on another school year at Appleby School. We are concentrating on making our voices the best that we can. To do that we record ourselves, play it back and discuss how we might improve and then re-record.Here is our first attempt for 2010. It is based on a poem, My Other Jandal' by Don Franks. My Other Jandal by Don FanksHave you seen my other jandal?I had it just before.It shouldn’t be too hard to find-It’s somewhere on the shore.It disappeared all by itselfWhen I was in the waves,And that’s the way my other jandalUsually behaves.The jandal photo was taken by Michael Fawcett
