Ant ~ By Bob


A forest squashed by heavy feet.
Terrified and amazed at the towering sky scraper.
Gripping tightly to the tree as the "friendly" giant waves.
Alarmed, scurrying back to safety.

Fly ~ By Isabella


Not causing any trouble
Only trying to escape
Surprised by the attack
Chased, caged, stunned

Eyes ~ By Bob

Did you know:

  • Eyes are a bit like cameras.
  • The iris lets in different amounts of light - when you are in the dark, your pupil gets bigger. When you are in bright light, your pupil gets smaller.
  • If your lens isn't working properly, you should get glasses. Glasses help the light to travel in the right way for the lens in your eye to see. 
  • If you have blue eyes, your skin is pale and you don't have much melanin to protect you from the sun. 
  • If you have brown eyes, your skin is darker and you have more melanin.
