The lighthouse


Ruma Tui have been learning about life in New Zealand in the 1800’s and finished off reading and writing about a lighthouse incident.  Layla decided she was going to make hers a poem! She has done really well creating a sense of urgency.



The Lighthouse


Shining bright over the town over the sea                                                                                                                                                    all while my owner is drinking tea.                                                                                                                                                           When I put my light upon the town                                                                                                                                                                no one ever has a frown.                                                                                                                                                                               Until one day I was feeling quite down.

Oh no my power I´m empty help!!                                                                                                                                                           Without my light                                                                                                                                                                                              The ships will never survive the night.

NO!! My bulb has shattered                                                                                                                                                                            the Ship is too close to the rock´s                                                                                                                                                                  and my owner´s out of his sock´s.

Huh                                                                                                                                                                                                                          the lightIs flashing before my eye´s                                                                                                                                                                   wait what? that´s not the light flashing before my eye´s                                                                                                                              it´s the villagers with light in the night.

The light stand´s around me and makes me happy.                                                                                                                                The Ship is away from the rock´s                                                                                                                                                                     and my owner is back in his socks.

My light shines bright again.
