Two holiday challenges from Gemma and Daniel

Gemma  and Daniel invented these fun challenges. Have a go yourself and send to with your details. I have lots of favourite lines in Daniel’s poem and I like the pattern in Gemma’s poem and the way it really takes you on a journey. Both are good to read out loud! Bravo! I would like to have a go myself today … watch this space.
