Mother's Day: It was great having the mothers in today and for them seeing the great work that the Saola Class produce. Today they wrote repetition poems for their mothers. The mothers also joined in and wrote about what it is like being a mother. Here are some anonymous examples: 

Happy Mother's Day

Everyone said it would change your life

Me, a mother! What does it mean?

I'd got a husband and had become a wife

Me, a mother! What does it mean?

A baby so small, needing all my time

Me, a mother! What does it mean?

But I soon worked it out, and knew it was fine

Me, a mother! What does it mean?

Soon you've grown big and my help you need less

But my job as a mother is still the best!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is once a year

Mother's Day Makes you remember why you are there

Mother's Day is breakfast in bed

Mother's Day is cards made with love

But remember

Mothers will love you everyday

Not just on Mother's Day
