Our Magic Box

Last Week we worked on the poem The Magic Box by Kit Wright in our Teams meetings, we came up with our own version, I think it is as good as the original.

The Magic Box

I Will Put In The Box,
The First Great White Shark,
A Great Green Tree,
The Last Light Seen On Earth.

I Will Put In The Box,
The first life of a man
The joy of god
The light of god

I will put in the box:
A dog with a head for a tail,
a cat who had a hat,
and stegosaurus with no toe,

I will put in the box:
The first laugh of a baby,
The last ray of sunshine,
The wind blowing in the trees.

I will put in the box:
The sight of the Queen
A duck flying free
To see the first petals on the trees

I will put on the box…
A new clear crystal,
My dogs first loud howl,
My baby brother’s first word.

I will put in my box
A flame from a dying sun,
A fallen star dropped by the night sky,
Life from another planet.

I will put in my box…
The colour of the sky,
The stars in the night,
The work that warmth of the sun.

I will put in the box:
My puppies first bark,
A memory of a sunny day in the park,
The smell of a flower,
And a sweet that is sour.

Our box is made of unicorn fluff, wood and Redstone,
It has tractors and dens on the top.
The body is made of barriers,
Invisible if it is not in your hand,
I shall ride my unicorn box into tomorrow,
The end of lockdown and McDonalds.

Verses by Aaron, Josh, Ben , Hannah, Alice, Skye, Heather, Jessica, Caelan. The whole class worked on the last two verses.
