Limericks

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

By:  Zac and Patrick

 

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

COLOUR POEMS

What is blue?

Blue is the colour of the sea

with waves crashing with glee.

Blue is the colour of the sky

with the clouds rushing by.

Blue is the colour of sapphire

which many people admire.

Blue is the colour of Neptune

that’s higher than a hot air balloon.

Blue is the water that we drink

with many other delicious things.

(by Thomas Sinclair 10 years old)

What is red?

Red is the fire

burning oh so bright.

Red is the rose

growing in the garden.

Red is an apple

oh so sweet.

Red is a fire truck

passing by.

Red is your blood

flowing through your veins.

Red is a heart

beating oh so loud.

(by Paige Potgieter – 10 years old)

What is blue?

Blue is the colour of the sea

with people swimming in it.

Blue is the colour of crystal clear water.

Blue is the colour of the sky up high.

Blue is the colour of Neptune in  the Solar System.

Blue is the colour of a sapphire under the ground.

(by Dylan Redding – 10 years old)
