My Mum

If she was a tree she would be a blossom tree because

she makes a grey sky blue.

If she was a flower, she would be a daisy, because she is so pretty.

If she was an ice cream she would be an ice cream sundae.

If she was a sweet she would be candy floss

because she is so soft and kind.

She would be a sunny Summer’s day all year round. (Saibh)

My Hero – Lee – My Dad

If he was a tree he would be birch because he’s bright.

If he was an ice cream he would be strawberry because he has good taste.

He is sunny all year round because he is fun to play with. (Dax)
