Amber's amazing rollercoaster poem


The Beast

We clamber aboard and strap our - selves in,

When will it begin?

A loud ROAR! From the creature.

Then …





We wait at the top,

The suspense in the air.

The beast has given us a right old scare!




SHRIEKING, Wind in hair!


Then it slows,

Like it knows it is the end-

It needs to get ready for bed!

By Amber.


Lacie has designed her own rollercoaster.

Shannon has been baking up a storm!  Those cakes look delicious.

Brodie has created his own pasta bake recipe using a rnage of vegetables which could be grown on an allotment.
