April Showers

                          Welly Boots

P.2 made pictures of Wellies in the rain.

They used chalk, pencil and pen for the puddles and the rain.

They used brightly coloured felt tips to design cheery wellies.


Welly Boots

Welly boots, smelly boots,

Fill them up with jelly boots.

Welly boots, smelly boots,

See them on the telly boots.

Welly boots, smelly boots,

Now they are in my belly boots.

Listening to the Trees

And the birch says                                                                                                                 it’s about dancing and colour

and the rowan says                                                                                                               it’s about berries and buds

and the willow says                                                                                                                it’s about shape and shelter

and the hazel says                                                                                                                  it’s about love and lichen

and the aspen says                                                                                                                 it’s about growth and wind

and I say it’s about listening to trees

The Heart of the Tree

What does he plant who plants a tree?                                                                    He plants the friend of sun and sky;                                                                          He plants the flag of breezes free,                                                                              The shaft of beauty, towers high…                                                                               … These things he plants who plants a tree.

Woodman Spare that Tree

Woodman spare that tree!                                                                                              Touch not a single bough!                                                                                                 In youth it sheltered me,                                                                                                   And I’ll protect it now…

Spring is Springing!

Spring Is Springing

Spring is springing,

Birds are singing,

The sun is shining,

Spring is springing!


Spring is springing,

Birds are singing,

Buds are swelling,

Spring is springing!


Spring is springing,

Birds are singing,

Flowers are opening,

Spring is springing!


Spring is Springing,

Birds are singing-

My heart is singing-

Spring is SPRINGING!



by P.2 Children

Lots of tricky cutting and sticking, using bright green & yellow      crepe paper, for these beautiful Daffodils.


She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,

She wore her greenest gown;

She turned to the south wind

And curtsied up and down.

She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbour:

“Winter is dead,”

A.A. Milne
