What's happening in the Middle School?

Poems, poems, poems.....Mrs Mac thought she'd have a go at writing some poems too. Let her know what you think!!!

Haikus for Writing
Amazing from the kids
Fun to write and read

There once was a group of kids called Middle,
Who liked to solve all kinds of riddles.
They worked them out
And gave a shout
Then got up and sang 'Hey Diddle Diddle'
