The Little Guys


These little guys are going to take the green key and lock all their good stuff up. There's a tiger and an elephant in a cupboard and they are going to take them out and put them in their space ship.

The Little Guys

These little guys are aliens. They stole the green key. Inside a cupboard there is a cat skeleton. It has been there for ever. When somebody opens the door to steal their stuff the cat skeleton goes boo! The little aliens are going to lock the cat skeleton up in a cage with the green key because he is too old to look after their stuff. The aliens will get all their stuff and put it in a bag and keep it in their space ship. They will live happily alienly ever after!

If I was a snail

If I was a snail I would like to eat cabbage. I would let the slug eat leaves and radishes. I would go for a walk to the trees to see the birds. I would hide in my shell because the birds would reckon I am meat! If the birds did eat me they would say 'Yuk' because I would taste like cabbage and I would be slimy. If I was a snail I would have a rest in a leaf. If I saw a Snail Zombie I would say 'go away' because I don't want garden snails to turn into snail Zombies because they are scary. I would come out when it is raining because I like it and I will come back in when the sun comes back out. I would like to come out at night too.

What have you been reading ?


I read a book called 'The Tree House' by Gordon Winch and illustrated by Greg Gaul. I like this book because it was funny when they fell on the trampoline.


I read a story called 'The Land of Many Colours'. The story is about, blue people, green people and purple people. They had a war. All the houses got broken and all the toys got ruined. A little dusty kid came and told the people to stop. The people listened to him. They fixed the houses and grew some plants and fixed the toys. They stopped the war and then everyone was friends. I didn't like the story because it was too boring!


I read 'Grandma's Project' written Patrica Almada, illustrated by Becky Radtke. It was about a grandma who did some clay making for a secret birthday surprise. She was making clay people, clay birds and things to put on a cake for the Mama's birthday. I like the story because it was a pretty birthday cake.


We read a story called 'The Land of Many Colours' . The story was about blue people, green people, and purple people. They had food, animals, toys and houses of their favourite colour. They had a fight because they didn't share. I liked it because a little child came and helped them become friends.

What did you do over the weekend?

Hi Everyone,
I asked the children about what they did over the weekend and this is what they said:
Hi, I went to the movies and it was fun. I watched 'Wall-E'. It was about a little box that sweeps up stuff and scrunches them into a box. I had my face painted like Spider Man.
I went to the circus. I saw monkeys walking and sitting on people's shoulders. I saw lions and the man told themto 'stay' and then they hopped up. I went with Meaghan and Tim , Eleanor, Ben and Lauren.


On Friday I went to the respite house. I had fun. For two nights I got sad because I missed my mummy. On Saturday I went to the circus. On Sunday afternoon I went home.

Sue Says

Eleanor, when I was little I used to miss my mum and dad when I had a sleep over. But just like you, I didn't let home sickness stop me from having a good time. I know that you had a fantastic time at respite!


On the weekend I went to Target and I got a truck and a car and a digger and T-shirt. My little cousin Mia got shoes and then I went to my Nan's house. Then I played with my truck and I went home on Sunday morning. I went to the pool in the afternoon for swimming.


I went to the Interchange outing. I was reading my dinosaur books. I had an icy-pole. It was chocolate flavour.

On Saturday I went to John and Jo's house for a barbeque.They have got two dogs named Abby and Lucky. We then went to the airport because Daddy was flying to the Solomon Islands. On Sunday I went to the park with Mummy and my sister.
On Saturday I spent time in my room playing with my toys. My favourite toy is a dinosaur puzzle. On Sunday my Dad bought me and my brothers new watches that had jelly beans and cookies in them.
On Saturday I went to Target with my family. We bought lightening McQueen game. We had to connect it to the TV so that we could play it.
On Sunday I watched Bathurst car racing with my Dad. Jamie and Craig were the winners of the race.They drove a Vodophone Ford Falcon.
On Saturday I went to Gran's farm and I slept there. I watered the plants for Gran and I played with VJ the dog. On Sunday morning I went to Church. I listened to a story and sang some songs.
I went to the Children's Fairand I climbed inside a blown up whale and did some exercises. I saw a fire truck and a police car and was given a balloon. I learnt that if you are caught in a fire you STOP,DROP and ROLL.

I asked the children 'What are you doing this weekend?' This is what they wrote:
On Saturday I'm going shopping with my family. We will go to the news agency to get the next issue of Bugs and Insects Magazine, issue No:3. It's called "Giant Scorpion'.


I don't know what we are doing this weekend. Sometimes I ride my bike and I ride my scooter.

Magic, Paint, Puzzles and Rock Wallabies!

Hi Everyone,

Last Tuesday I went to the magic show in town. I liked the magician who clipped animals to his hat and spun around until he got dizzy. I ate lots of lollies at the magic show.
