The Artists and Poets:
I have a dog called Mark
and her dad is a shark
The cat it’s my pet
The dog is a fluffy pug
Silver roses smell like mint
It feels soft like it is real
All the flowers
Go to the playground
They are Alina’s roses.
Coco the cat was too fat to get up from the mat.
He wanted to get up from the mat so he could chase the
Coco could not get on his feet but he managed to
bum-shuffle across the street.
It was raining sleet.
The lion something human princess superhero peacock
normal person human”
by Sadhbh and Emily
He lives in the museum
The history museum
There’s a big event
Everyone’s taking big photos of him
Because it’s his first year in the museum
And it’s his 100th birthday.
But it turns out that he’s camera shy
And he gets so scared he almost bites someone’s head off.
He shakes his Peacock feathers
and he shakes his booty to the zookeeper
Who wants to buy him for his zoo.
Rosemary Jim wanted to stay in the museum.
All his friends were there.
His friends were liberty the Statue
and Humpty Dumpty the broken egg,
And Saint Patrick’s staff
Upheld by no one.
But then the zoo keeper bought him
For a healthy sum of 2 million euro
Rosemary Jim was crying and whining his head off
And then his head exploded
But he had magic powers that let him grow his head back.
He was so angry at the zookeeper
Smoke came out of his ears.
The zookeeper doesn’t care
He uses the smoke from his ears to boil kettle
And to cook Rosemary Jim for his lunch.
But Rosemary Jim had magic powers that brought him
back to life.
He lived a happy life and made even more friends.

Когда мы летели на самолёте, мне было 7 лет.
Мою собаку чику породы смесь чихуахуа и шпица
посадили к остальным питомца и сели в самолёт.
Поскольку мы летели Японию на 1 месяц, мы взяли
8 чемоданов с собою. Пока я кушала, я слишала
как Чика разговаривает с остальнимі. Чика
сказала: привіт, как вас звати? Фламінго сказав:я
холлін, попугаіха сказала: я Поллі,а чорний пудів
огризнулся: как ти смеешь! Чика сказала:шо таке? А
тот самий пудів сказав: ха-ха-ха! Ти менше всіх нас
и ти нічого не знаешь? Чика била в шоке.
When we flew on a plane, I was 7 years old. My dog, Chica,
a mixture of Chihuahua and Spitz, was put with the
rest of the pet and boarded the plane. Since we were flying
to Japan for 1 month, we took 8 suitcases with us.
While I was eating, I heard how Chika was talking to the
Chika said: “Hello, what’s your name?”
The flamingo said: “I am Hollin.”
The parrot said: “I am Polly.”
The black poodle snarled: “How dare you!”
Chica said: “what is it?”
That poodle himself said: “ha-ha-ha! You know less than
all of us and you know nothing?” Chica was shocked.

One dog who
Loves me and I
Love her too
Yes it’s true
And dog I love her
Night and day
Now I am going to play,
Everyday I am so excited to play
Like chocolate no
In A Dog’s Head
Happy I’ll be
Run I’ll do
Fun I’ll have
What about you?
Yes I’m a dog and I love you
I just hope you love me too
The sky, the flower, the leaves that fall
A squirrel in a tree
I hope it doesn’t fall
The velvety petals of the flower
The lovely smell
The sound of them blowing in the wind
The lovely colours in the spring

the bog. Then the cat got a hat the cat played with the
hat.the dog came back and barked till dark. Then the
cat saw a rat cat. And the dog went on a walk to the bog.

My Strange Day
There was a cat who was chasing a rat a very fat rat,
It ran into a bat and it went splat,
I sat on it then it was flat and that was that.
Then I ran into a dog who was eating a frog,
Oh Jesus I was only out for a jog.
So I ran inside and then I cried,
I am really happy, Oh No I just lied,
I am really sad, I’m going to bed,
This day was all a dread.
And then I had a dream that I was eating whipped cream,
and then I fell off and was licking a shoe,
When I woke up I found out that it was true.
I was feeling blue so I went to my friend who was just
This day was exhausting,
I’m gonna do writing because I really really really,
really feel like fighting.
I’m going to Fighting Words!!

Bob was streaming he was opening pokemon cards. He
had spent all his money on them so on the next day he
started streaming he was playing with subscribers he
was so good that he said “you guys suck” everyone unsubscribed
and no one was watching that means that he
couldn’t buy food and and pay for house that meant that
he needed to leave and he left, but wait he can buy a piece
of paper but how can he use it? He can draw something
but he doesn’t have enough money for the pencil so he’s
gonna draw with the rock. The next day he drew. He did
his drawing and someone immediately bought it yay now
he can buy the pencil and now more people will buy the
drawings and now he can pay for house and buy food and
from that moment he made his own drawing company.
Колись в мене був пес і кіт. І щоранку вони за щось
боролися і коли я одного ранку встав раніше то
побачив що собака забирає їжу в кота. І зрозумів
чому вони боролися.
I once had a dog and a cat. And every morning they
fought for something, and when I got up early one morning,
I saw that the dog was taking food from the cat. And
I understood why they were fighting.
The cat was driving and he heard a splat.
He got out and his tyre was flat.
“Oh Zat! How bad is that,”said the cat
Then he saw a dog. “My name is Mog,” said the dog
“Can you help me Mog?”
But the dog ignored him and went for a jog.
Along came a frog he jumped out of a bog. He helped the
cat. Thanks for that said the cat.
Це історія про мою собаку.
Колись у мене було цуценя і воно було білосніжне
і я його назвав Білячок. Я із ним гуляв бігав і
стрибав і ми були найкращими друзями і на цьому
закінчилась ця історія.
This is a story about my dog.
I once had a puppy and it was snow white and I named
it Squirrel. I walked, ran and jumped with him and we
were the best of friends and that was the end of this
Small, Medium, Big or Tall
Dogs can be anything at all
Mine is small,
And very furry
And when he sees me
He runs to me in hurry
So that’s my dog and this is my poem
Everyday I see you with her bright blue colour
And when I touch you, you feel like butter
I also hear your petals rustling in fear of the mowers
You’d taste like cherry, the beautiful berry
(but of course I’d never eat you)
Ted woke up to the sound of Timmy crying. He sighed
and stepped out of his room, down the hall and into Timmy’s
room. Timmy was sitting up in his cot bawling and
pointing at his teddy bear, Squishy. Ted didn’t know why
Timmy called the bear Squishy and didn’t care. To be fair,
Timmy was about…1 year? Maybe less…
“What’s it now, Timmy?” Ted asked knowingly.
Timmy paused his crying and stared at Ted in fear. Still
pointing at Squishy, Timmy said: “So- Squishy…moved!”
he blubbered. Ted stared at him. And it was at that moment
that he…burst out laughing. Tiny started bawling
“I’m telling the truth! He did move! He did! He did! He
Ted stopped laughing and wiped the tears out of his eyes.
“Okay, okay, okay. You did see him move!” Ted muttered
sarcastically. “Just don’t wake me up again!”
And he stepped out of the room. Bak in his cot, Timmy
focused his eyes on Squishy, on the other side of his cot.
And Squishy took a step closer to him.
Flower Tree Squirrel Sky Fall
The squirrel in a tree
Saw a fly going by
So he jumped but then it bumped him hit him,
He would fall.
He heard the sky’s call.
He landed on a flower and sat there on a flower.
