Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mother's Day

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you pack my favourite snack
and I knew you cared.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you make the yummiest fried rice
and I knew little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you hang out my laundry
and I thought I can help others too.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you wash the dishes
and I learnt that you are hard working.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you skip breakfast so I can get to school on time  
And I learnt that education is important.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you wake up extra early to take me to piano
And I learnt that love means sacrifice.  

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw you make my bed when I forgot to
And I knew you will always be there for me.

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I looked…
And I wanted to tell you thanks for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking

Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing

I looked up the wall of doom. Frightened. Sick to my stomach. Strapped in, I reluctantly walked up to the wall. My hands dripped of sweat. I trembled. Mum and Dad, proudly cheered me on. Clutching the plastic peculiar shaped rocks, I placed my foot on the lowest stone. Motionless and stiff. 10 centimeters never looked so obscure. I reached for the next rock, slowly I clambered to the pinnacle of Mount Everest. I proudly waved to my family. The drop was daunting. There's only one way down. I jumped down, closed my eyes, hoping I'll survive. Next thing I noticed I’m lying on my back. My family crowded around me and celebrated my achievement and bravery.

I have created a recount about my first experience rock climbing.

ANZAC Art

ANZAC Letters Home

ANZAC Letters Home
Dear Family,
Cold, scared, hungry. It’s dark. My feet are wet. Hard, old biscuits and canned meals are the norm. Bombs, cries and gunshots, one after another. Hours go by. Cartilages lay rotting in the trench. Duties like repairing trenches, guard duty and clean weapons are not my preference. After all I am still fighting and hoping one day we'll be together. “Over the top in ten seconds” called Captain
Just know that I will always love you.


In our classroom we have been learning about ANZAC day. ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand army corps.
