Our group of Room 6 students
had a really great holiday
they went places, did things
and all have lots to say:

Mrs Veary stood
ankle deep in the water
and handfed a dolphin
called Piccolo,
Charlie felt like a real cook
roasting marshmellows golden-brown
on the campfire near the shed,
Meg was terrified zooming around those tilting tracks
on Big Thunder Mountain Rollercoaster
in Disneyland Paris –
with her hair sticking out on end,
Jay celebrated
with his whole entire soccer team
playing hide-and-seek chasey
at the Colonial,
Cassidy was ecstatic
with the dancing and music
in the live show “Alladin”
at the Casino in Perth,
Ivy ate the Biggest Pink French Macaroon
she had ever set her eyes on
under the Eiffel Tower
with a French sun
shining over her,
Heidi very nervously
fed Rex the horse a carrot treat
out in the far paddock,
Felix toasted marshmallows
till they burnt black
at a friend’s fire on Saturday night,
Sid was so excited
with his red soccerball from his stepdad
for coming seventeeth
in the Cross-Country,
Tilly saw the red dirt and felt the dry heat
of the Pilbara
when she explored
her Dad’s worksite,
Jai cooked
big fluffy pancakes
with his dad,
Ayla collected shells and a dried out starfish
along a beach up North
to create a beautiful picture frame,
Jenna caught seven blue swimmer crabs
while living right on the beach
at Mandurah,
Dominic curled up inside
his green and red dinosaur sleeping bag
when he went camping
with his dad,
Nicholas excitedly bought
a new Nintendo 3dx XL
and set it up ready to go
as soon as his Mum got home,
Kye L. couldn’t even lift up his head
when he went on the Graviton
at Waroona Show
because it felt like a powerful magnet,
Charli went crabbing with a long smelly net
which she had to pull up so quickly
while hanging over
the side of the big jetty, and
Oscar surfed spectacularly
down a steep sand dune
at the Rivermouth.
