The children were taught how to write a limerick and then proceeded to write their own in pairs.  We clapped out the rhythm of a limerick using examples.  


There was a thief who had a plan

His plan was to rob an old man

They caught him at Spar

Buying a Mars bar

And they put him in a large van

There once was a mouse named Mare

Who lived in Jenny’s blonde hair

It was in a bad mood

It wanted some food

So bit her hard and didn’t care
