The Old Man Of Peru

 There was an old man of Peru,

Who dreamt he was eating his shoe.

He woke in the night

In a terrible fright,

And found it was perfectly true.

No Harm Done

 As I went out

The other day,

My head fell off

And rolled away.

 

But when I noticed

It was gone,

I picked it up

And put it on.

Danger Game

 Jessica was playing

On the escalator.

When suddenly she tripped

And the escalator ate her!

 John Walsh

 

Good luck!

Who likes Tom and Jerry?

Hello everyone.
What to do today.
Watch the cartoon and answer these questions? Email them to me at constance.reilly@westlothian.org.uk or leave a reply here in the blog.

What are Tom and Jerry pretending to be?
What is the stick that Tom and Jerry use?
Can you names 4 instruments, or more if you can, in the cartoon?
What is your favourite instrument?

Why don’t you use a pencil or a chopstick and be the conductor during this piece of music. Can you stay in time?


Time to relax.

Good morning everyone,

This week we are exploring poetry!

Today’s topic is food.

Activities to choose from:

Enjoy the following poems about food (they may also give you some ideas for your own poems):

The Pancake

 Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan.

Fry the pancake,

Toss the pancake,

Catch it you can.

Christina Rossetti

 

Sounds Good!

 Sausage sizzles,

crispbreads crack;

hot dogs hiss

and flapjacks snap!

Bacon boils

and fritters fry;

apples squelch

in apple pie.

 

Baked beans bubble,

gravy grumbles;

popcorn pops,

and stomach rumbles …

 

I’m Hungry!

Judith Nicholls

 

Peas

 I eat my peas with honey,

I’ve done it all my life,

They do taste kind of funny,

But it keeps them on the knife.

Good luck!
