NOW that the school holidays are over, Mrs Williams in Gr 4 at Malhurst Primary set her children the traditional task of writing about their holiday. Belinda Tamsen snatched up her pen and Mrs Williams knew that more secrets of the Tamsen family were about to be revealed. My Crismus Holliday By Belinda Tamsen (Gr 4) We went to the Cavinberg in the Drakinsberg mowntins again becors my mummy lieks to go on warks in the mowntins all-tho my daddy dussint. He liek to go owt on his mowntin biek but he dussint go in the mowntins he just go on the tar rode.

The gide say he better rest an we orl wait for him to stop panting then we set off but he keep stopping and panting. Then he say we must orl go on and leev him to die by hisself. Mie mummy say this is a sensibul sud-jeston becors uther wize we never get to the cave. Nest day he hobbel arown groning.
