Author/Illustrators

This term, we have been finding out about several authors who are also illustrators.
The main people we have looked at are Dr Seuss, Lynley Dodd and Bill Peet.
We have both written and drawn in  their styles while thoroughly enjoying their books.

Included here are three pieces of writing about Mr Pete, our caretaker. We shared these with him as we wanted Pete to know how much we value him at HNP.



I saw Pete
in the morning
controlling
the big rush
in the drop off,
talking to people
and children
getting cold
and wet,
waiting
for the bell
to ring.
He opens
the door
and talks
to Percy.

This morning,
Peti-i-te-Rangi
spied Pete
standing
in the rain,
holding
a
big
umbrella
when she
arrived
at school.
Peti
climbed
out
of the
car,
she said
bye
to her
Mum,
as Pete
gave her
a smile,
a wave
and a
wish
for a
good
day.
I saw
Pete
holding
an umbrella,
helping at the
drop off zone.
He was
wearing
a hat
under
the umbrella.
He was
alone
in
the
rain.
