Evan and Amy’s Christmas tree

This week we made Christmas trees.  We made them out  of toilet rolls. We each needed fourteen toilet rolls. We painted four of them brown and the rest of them green.

Then we stuck  four together for the base, three and two for the middle and one for the top. We decorated it with pom-poms and pipe cleaners. We stuck the pom-poms in the toilet rolls and the pipe cleaners around the tree. You could use other things to decorate it as well. We waited for it to dry, then we had a Christmas tree! 🙂

The Halloween Game

Posted by Jamie On October - 25 - 2013

From each end of the globe they came,
Ghosts and vampires of every name.
“She won’t be here” they all exclaim,
All afraid she’d play a good game.

“Start it up” said the ghosts in a terrible rush
“before she comes on that top-speed brush”.
No sooner than said they heard the loud whoosh
She flew over a pumpkin and turned it to mush.

“Ye started without me” she said with a cackle
“were ye hoping I wouldn’t be here for the tackle?”
Straight away she started to play
“that nasty old witch” you could hear them all say.

With a dip and a dive she gave the ref a high five
“It’s funny playing a game and not one player alive”,
“Just as well” said the ref
“They’d never survive”.

The witch took a kick; they thought it was wide
but according to squawkeye it was just inside.
The vampires took revenge and sent it in quick
and over the bar it went with a flick.

With a whoosh of the broom she lifted the ball
“not fair” said the ghosts “that was our call”
but the witch pretended not to see him at all
“don’t worry” said the ref “the score is one all”.

With a sprinkle of magic from that terrible stick
“Over the bar “said the witch and not even a kick.
The ghosts were all pale, “not another fail”
but the witch sent them spinning “I’m here for the winning”,
”off the post” said the ref, “it’s not over the line,”
“ok” said the witch but “the next one is mine”.

Once again that stick she pulled from her pocket,
“I dare any of you to try and block it”.
“He he” said the witch “that’s three to me”,
The ghosts just gave in and said “you’re so mean”,
said she “same time and place next year and I promise to play clean…..he he he”.

Halloween Dinner

Posted by Joseph On October - 25 - 2013

Once I went to a dinner party,
the host was a ghost,
but I only discovered that when he started to float.

I ran for the door, but it had disappeared, then a super sharp knife flew past my ear.
I ran and ran for my life,
then I discovered a witch was the ghost’s wife.

I ran again and started fallin’,
then I landed in a cauldron.
I got out, covered in gloop, then I turned into a bowl of soup.

I tottered away not knowing that,
I was being enjoyed by a cat!
