Mr. Jelly went to the welly shop
He had a smelly welly too.
He went to the well too.
He had a telly it was smelly too.
His head was a telly
He had a big belly too.
And his belly was jelly.
It was a smelly belly.

In the spring time birds sing
They fly around and flap their wings
In the spring time flowers grow
We cut the grass to keep it short
So we can run and play on swings.
SANDRA BYRNE AGED 7 TIMAHOE N.S
Plough in the sun,
Reap in the rain,
Mix soil and seed into one,
And bring forth autumn again.
The word millennium means a span of 1000 years. With the year 2000 we end the second
millennium and begin the third millennium. Why did our calendar start then? According to
tradition Jesus was born about 2000 years ago. Many centuries ago in England at the Synod
of Whitby (A.D. 663) people decided to start their calendar with the birth of Jesus. At
that time the acronym A.D. was used (from the Latin words Anno Domini, meaning in the year
of the Lord) A.D 2000 bears witness to the birth of Jesus Christ-though probably not the
exact date of birth.
Before this, time in the Roman Empire had been computed from either the
foundation of the city of Rome, Lunar calendars, or the date of the last consul.
It is also interesting to note that the decision to celebrate Christmas on the 25th
of December was decreed by the Emperor Constantine ( the first Christian Emperor) and Pope
Sylvester in the year 336 to replace the Roman pagan festival of Sol Invietus and the
MY TRIP TO ENGLAND
During Easter my friend Becky, my sister Stacey and I went to
England with the scouts. We travelled by boat and bus. When we got there we stayed at a
hostel. The first day we went to Alton Towers.
I went on the runaway train and my favourites were the tea cup rides and the frog
hopper. The next day I went into Alton Towers again and I went into Toyland and the
hippopotamus was really funny.
After that we went back to the hostel and we were playing in the pool room. The next
day we went to the chocolate factory and we got loads of Cadburys chocolate bars. We also
got on a car ride around the factory and the camera took photo of us. Then we went to see
our photograph and Becky bought the photograph and Barry looked really funny in it.
We bought our own lunch in the café. I got some sandwiches. Next we went to WaterWorld
and we were not able to swim but we had great fun in the water.We also went to
Manchesters Old Trafford football ground. On the last day we went on the bus to the ferry and when we got back my Mother was there
waiting for Stacey and I. We had a lovely time and Im looking forward to next
years trip to Euro Disney.
