There was no technology,

Just playing old games.

Time to jump and cheer hooray,

It’s family time.

The grey cloudy sky,

Clashed with the warm sunny day,

Then rainbows emerge.


Home – by Coby

Together we stand,

Although we are all at home,

Still friends forever.

School is closed but we still learn,

Busy in lockdown.

The teachers have helped so much;

Sunshine follows heavy rain.

World in isolation,

Stay safe and apart.

It was so much fun

Huge smiles everywhere,

A community of friends,

Together again.
