Reciprocal reading

We love reading different types of books and then talking about them.

It’s great to share the events of the story, particularly the exciting bits. We’ve been ‘clarifying’ our reading understanding in Reciprocal Reading groups. We sit around and talk to our group about what words and phrases mean and clear up sections we didn’t understand.

Happy Mother’s Day to our mums


by Anya 34K


Love is a miraculous thing

Made of lovely golden rings.


From  mothers to fathers,

From sisters to brothers.


Love is a gift that you can’t force

If you do it will only make it worse.


Love is something you can take,

Only if it’s worth the wait.


Love gives you a fuzzy feeling

It’s almost like your heart escaped the ceiling.

Writing – it’s time to prepare for Open Night at HWPS

Australian Pied Piper

By Leo 34K


Where children played in merry days,

Where happiness was contagious,

The aboriginal children played all day,

Until the Australian Pied Pipers.


Australian Pied Pipers were cruel men,

They stole and killed for fun,

The children didn’t find this nice,

and tried to stop the Pipers,

but they guns and hurt the little ones,

that tried to take over.


Native Australians were soon scattered,

And no one knew their own mums and dads,

Except for some lucky ones,

That we call the survivors…


The legendary horseman


A man rode his horse down the barky road.

The man at the paddock said, “Oh, who’s that driver Green John?”

The old man went to find his specs in the hay.

Driver Green John saw the man, “Wow, he’s fast!

That’s the legendary horseman alright!”

The old man came back.

“Did I miss him?” said the old man,

tilting his specs into place.
