1/2F Poetry

After our visit from the amazing author Andy Seed, the children couldn't wait to read more of his fantastically silly poems! The children recited their favourite poem "Cheeky Pete" from Andy's workshop and have also learnt and innovated "Big Foot" and "Mum, I saw an Alien!"

Have a read of 1/2F's poems below!

Mum, I saw a whale.

 

Mum, I saw a whale,

Its swimming in a dish!

With a big body and sharp fins,

And skin as blue as a fish!

 

By Vinny, Year 1

Mum, I saw a moose.

 

Mum, I saw a moose,

It's out there on the cat!

With horrifying horns and a cute big nose,

It's on the vicious mat!

 

It's snoozing behind your back - watch out!

Those hairy armpits look mean,

Them horrifying toes have muck in them,

And it's skin has disappeared!

 

By Tilly, Year 2

Mum, I saw a penguin.

 

Mum, I saw a penguin,

It's out there in the pool!

With a soft body,

And acting like a fool!

 

By John-James, Year 1

Mum, I saw a Snake.

 

Mum, I saw a snake,

It's out there on the path!

With huge teeth and gigantic eyes,

And it's coming to have a bath!

 

By Courtney, Year 2

Mum, I saw a spider.

 

Mum, I saw a spider,

It's out there on the path!

With black hair and long legs,

Now it's having a bath!

 

It's crawling closer mum - watch out!

These big teeth look mean,

It's making funny noises,

And it's hair is black and green!

 

By Charley, Year 2

Mum, I saw a spider.

 

Mum, I saw a spider,

It's somewhere in our house!

With glowing orange eyes,

It's chasing our mouse!

 

It's coming closer mum - watch out!

Those black teeth look nasty,

That great black and brown belly scares me,

It's munching on my pasty!

 

By Charlotte, Year 2

Mum, I saw a butterfly,

It's out there in the sky!

With yellow wings and purple stripes,

It's making apple pie!

 

By Ruby, Year 2

Mum, I saw a giraffe.

 

Mum, I saw a giraffe,

It's eating at the zoo!

With big brown spots and a long yellow neck,

It's  gobbling up my shoe!

Mum, I saw an elephant.

 

Mum, I saw an elephant,

It's out there in the mud!

With grey skin and a long trunk,

It's eating my chocolate pud!

Mum, I saw a dolphin.

 

Mum, I saw a dolphin,

It's out there in the sea!

With smelly flippers,

It's drinking a cup of tea!

Mum, I saw a tiger.

 

Mum, I saw a tiger,

It's sat on the road!

With  big ears and terrible fur,

It's typing in my passcode!
