Year 4 have been writing poetry this week, focusing on poems by Irene Rawnsley, Richard Brown and Robert Hull.
As a class, we have rewritten Robert Hull’s poem – Please do not feed the animals.
Its the summer holidays and we’re at the zoo.
‘Please do not feed the animals…’
Please do not feed the bats – kebabs
Never give a pig – a fig
Remember gorillas – are not allowed fritters
Do not feed an ape – tiny squidgy grape
Don’t feed the raccoons – macaroons
Don’t give the bears – pears
Please do not feed the seals – meals
Or the fleas – peas.
Please do not feed the zebras – peppers
Or the prawns – sweetcorns.
Do not give the donkey – celery.
Never give a lamb – ham
And don’t feed the cats – big macs.
Please don’t give the rattlesnakes – jaffacakes.
Don’t feed the unicorn – corn
Don’t feed the cat – kitkat.
Or the snake – a cupcake
Please do not give the bee – any tea.
Or the orcas – porkers
Please don’t feed the babboons – from spoons.
