asked to draw pictures or write about their experiences. Teachers got together
to compare the results and put together some of the 'better' ones:

a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea because I think they have
to plug themselves in to chargers.

their shiny tails. How do mermaids get pregnant? (Helen age 6)

When I born, I black
When I grow up, I black
When I go in Sun, I
When I scared, I black
When I sick, I black
And when I
die, I still black
And you white fellow
When you born, you pink
When you grow up,
When you go in sun, you red
When you cold, you blue
When you scared, you yellow
When you sick, you green
And when you
die, you gray
And you calling me coloured?
