When my parents go abroad on business, I miss them so very much Please, don’t kidnap the children’s game but I know they’ll keep in touch.

For being human world is made. I always loved animals In fact I had a puppy Why in only special cases Its name was Lucky. Someone looks in their faces, I also had three kittens Telling them a simple “sorry”, And a dog so lovely Followed by a warm “don’t worry!”?! They were all so cuddly! Now time passed and For whom are really these words? I wish to stay young forever Are for in need or those in boards? This is my biggest prayer! Careless in an armchair It’s hard to know who can bear. By Julijana Ilic Year 3 Tulips A gentle smile the mountains move, Malta A sincere word kindness can prove; Beauty we can discover now But it’s an art to know it how.

He wears a crown I love my toy Sonia Niţulescu Whose name is Roy! -7C- Romania Shakira Grace Camilleri Year 3 Sunflowers Malta MY CHILDHOOD DON’T LOOSE THE BELIF IN GOD

My brother has a toy Now “crisis” seems to be the word – His toy is a car It tries to plug a harmful sword; He drives it very far But I think it’s not a reason – The car runs around the house Don’t kill the charm of each season. It’s like a little mouse Let’s say no violence in schools, The car is small Obeying strictly all the rules; And not very tall By means of projects let’s have fun The car is red It’s time to dance, to sing, to run. James takes it to bed We have to be good, even if Kimberly Grech Some people have lost the belief Year 3 Sunflowers In God, life principles or love – Malta ‘Cause a grey sky is seen above. And unfortunately there are MY CHILDHOOD Sad, lonely souls which, by far, In vain wait for a sunny day When I was small, And wish a house, a bright ray.

The happiest becomes each heart I like to make shapes When plants are green, people are smart. that are straight with my silver grey clay. An immense tear earth will drop If after work there is no crop; I have a cat and I play with her all the time Adopt a tree or a flower I have a hat, which is red And build from smiles a nice tower. And the cat likes to sleep in my hat. The wind sings a concert for leaves, Shanaia Vella For birds a poet sonnet gives; Year 3 Roses Happy kids their nests care Malta Glad a colt smiles to a mare. Yellow tulips dance a folk reel, On a path runs a little veal; Nice flowerbeds like soldiers stay And greet the people every day. My cat The green gold our health is I have a cat with a hat. Like for a sailor the sea’s breeze; This is my pet So, dear friends, let’s protect it and her name is Pat And we’ll be happy when we meet. She likes to sit on her mat Playing with the bat Carmen Vlăsceanu And looking at the net. -6C- Romania Kaia Vella Year 3 Roses Malta I LIKE TO PLAY JOYFUL SEASONS
  8. 8. When I was a little girl, Oh, look, how joyful seasons are! I used to play They liked the story told by star; With dough and clay. They will always be together, I used to wear a hat To far away they say “never”. And play with the cat On my pink mat. Proud I the old year ‘Cause his daughters are still near; Julia Bonarska Earth feels their separation Year 3 Roses It cannot fight for duration. Malta The spring plays the first in the show, Announced by snowdrops, you know; The summer festival is made MY WISH By tulips and by rain it’s paid. When I was a little boy, A brown carpet autumn shows, I wanted a brother or a sister. So sad are the leaves of a rose; Now my dream came true. The white of snow brings children’s joy My mum and dad are having a baby And sledge is their favourite toy. And we are so happy. I wish it will be a baby boy, But two of seasons seem to be And I will look after the new baby for sure.

A violin begins to play My childhood was tough, fun and exciting A gorgeous ballad every day; My childhood was one where there wasn’t much fighting Its lyrics depict a great past – I can remember all the happiness, Along the ages they will last. This is my childhood That I will never forget. A magic flute remembers us Culture remains when ages pass; Kyle Sciberras And a guitar the taste wakes up Year 3 Roses Each generation stops a gap. Malta A mandolin in a school band Is like a queen of a nice land; WHEN I WAS LITTLE Two crickets try to learn the song And ants’ hunger won’t be too long. When I was little I was a silly girl Well, an amazing concert starts – I was so happy For music tremble all the hearts; About myself. Music knows to make us better More often we’ll write a letter. I loved to play With my toys When we are sad, when we are ill, And I loved to eat The instruments have then a deal: Beans and toast. First they promise to make us strong, I had an animal To stop what in this world is wrong. His name was Hinkey A funny rabbit Sara Militaru Furry and cuddly. -5D- Romania Nicole Fenech Year 3 Roses. Malta MY CHILDHOOD TREES WITHOUT A FOREST

The files of life are wrong sometimes, When I was six I was building with sticks and bricks Cruel they are to tell in rhymes; Now I am seven, not six Without kids, life is so dull, I play with rocks and blocks. Without mums, fate is a tool. I like to play with dolls and balls. Sad is to live in a shelter, I like to eat pizza for my dish and not fish. Waiting in vain to be better; My favourite pets are cats not rats. Like trees without forest are I like to read and grow a seed. The lonely kids whose parents far. I like rules and tools. And every woman, just a nurse, I like apples, oranges, When she takes out from her purse Strawberries and meat to eat A little money or a sweet, I like doing a little bit of For them sun starts to shine a bit. Swimming and fishing. A broken leg or a hurt knee Kirsty Fiott Cared by mum they cannot be; Year 3 Roses And for each tear on the cheek Malta A handkerchief dad doesn’t seek. MY DOLL Later, when they grow up, hardly Children will remember sadly I have a Dolly, Of the first ball, just the first bike Her name is Molly. And other toys they most like. When I go shopping, I put her in the trolley With her best friend Polly. Alexia Popescu -6C- Heline Borg Romania Year 3 Sunflowers Malta MY CHILDHOOD THE WONDERS OF ART
  11. 11. A dreaming landscape we can draw When I was little, I had a cat Where king is the lovely rainbow; I went to a shop with mum and bought a hat. So, we shall talk to the flowers – After, I thought to have a snack. They will choose for us the colours. I laid down on the mat, and then went out to play with my bat. The green leaf smiles to the raindrop, I sat down and did my math The mountain is bright to the top, Besides my math, I had to feed the cat. A lemon and an orange talk After feeding my cat, I went to have a bath And they prepare a short walk. After my bath, I went to bed. To draw means to feel life through art, Kyle Azzopardi To show the beauty in the heart, Year 3 Roses Often with open eyes to dream, Malta From colours we achieve a cream. CHILDHOOD We can cure the hurts with it, The injuries which soul hit; I was born on the 14th April, 2002 That’s why more beautiful life is The time was 5:30 in the afternoon. When art succeeds wonders like this. My parents were very happy I became sister to Peter and Kelsey. More human lives rescued can be – I was a very good baby.

  12. 12. A great flute singer told once I have a puppy, “Don’t worry, if God is with us, He’s so cute and fluffy. Nobody against us will be”; By my father he was found, Let’s keep in mind, both you and me. Cold and lonely on the ground. We decided to take him home, To help many people in need So he’ll never be alone. There are a lot of groups indeed; But our project team will solve Now Nico is his name, The problems in which we’re involve. And he really loves to play. The ball I throw for him to catch, The magic word will be friendship, But he’s too young to fetch. In schools and churches we’ll worship; When faith in our souls there is I love Nico with all my heart, Then birds are angels in the trees. And I pray we never part. Nico is my lovely pet, To orphan houses we shall go Thank you God for the day we met. Then our steps God will follow; We’ll give kids toys, even books Nicole Vella And sweets made by us – little cooks. Year 3 Sunflowers Malta A lot of photos we shall take Presenting actions children make; Friends, charity is very fine, It is from God a special sign.
