This week’s text comes from Faust in 3B:
When I was little, we went in north of France during the holidays.
We slept in a little house, it was yellow and white. Often the weather was bad, it rained a lot but sometimes the sun shone. Next to the sea, there are a lot of wind and very often I went with my father on the beach with our kite, it was a red bird. One day we were on the beach and it was a kite competition.
My father said: « Look up, can you see the dragons, the monsters and the blue one, can you see them ? »
We had to be careful to not touch the others kites.
Today the anglophone class are writing haiku to celebrate Poetry Day,

She’s a good teacher
She has a good writing
This is Mrs Harris
The scary and cold
forest which I went in was
Life is difficult
You need to trust in yourself
and stay who you are.
I was speaking in
class so I got detention.
It was horrible.
I avoided a
branch while skiing and got hurt
’cause I am clumsy.
Friends are really nice
but sometimes they let you down
but they are still your friends.
It’s Easter today
get some eggs in the garden
Now, go and get them!
When you go to school
You should always have your books
and to concentrate.
School is worth our time
It may not seem so, at times
but mum says it is.
Which is your favourite?
