What is a true friend?


A true friend says what they think their friends need to hear,

even when they know their friend may get angry.

A true friend doesn’t leave when the fun stops and things get uncomfortable.

They are just a few of the values that real friends hold dear.

In short, a true friend recognises the value of true friendship and holds it sacred.

At the Seaside

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.
My holes were empty like a cup,
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.


By Robert Louis Stevenson




Gliding like a snake,

breathing quieter than a mouse.

Darting in the deep shadows,

trembling in the coldness.

Freedom at last.


By Lauren Merchant




Sun, moon, river, sky

skip, jump,low, high.


Moon, river, sky, sun

eat, munch, biscuit, bun.


River, sun, Sky, moon

read, write, class, room.


Sun, sky, moon river

jog, run, life, giver.
