It was cloudy and stormy and there was no sign of the sun – instead it was pouring rain. Everyone was waiting for the sun to come out and brighten up the dark, stormy day. It was like that for the last few days but the next day when everyone had given up the sun peeked through the clouds, it was still raining at the same time and then an amazing burst of colours appeared in the sky and everyone rushed to their windows to see all the amazing colours in the sky. They all knew that the sun would come again every rainy day.

The colourful painting looks like a rainbow with all types of colours you could imagine. It reminds me of a bright amazing rainbow.
The second painting looks like a bright sunny day with fresh new green grass and a big patch of purple flowers all bunched up together and it reminds me of something happy and warm.

Some people lived in piano music lines. There names were Do re Mi fa sol. One day they went down to the drum line and tried to play drums but they couldn’t play so they went to another string instrument – guitars and because they were similar the piano succeeded at playing the guitar and said we’d better leave  so they travelled home.
