ST PATRICK'S DAY - 17/03/20


Today is St Patrick's day!  He is the patron saint of Ireland so to celebrate I thought I would share with you one of my favourite animal poems that was written by Spike Milligan, an Irish/English poet, author, actor and comedian.  He wrote silly verse for children and as he had 6 children of his own, he knew exactly what they would find funny!  Here is one of my favourites.....

Did you enjoy reading it?  I like it so much that I decided to use it as a template to write my own – 

Can a spider
Be a rider
Sitting on a horse?
What a silly thought that is
I’m bored at home of course.

Why not try writing your own funny poem about animals?  Use some rhyming words and read it through carefully to check for spelling mistakes.  Use the links on this page to find some unusual animals.  When you have finished please send it to me at lucybl@canterburyschool.com 

Stay safe and be good!
