Some More News!

In February I drove over the Pennines and visited Cherry Fold Primary School in Burnley. It’s on Cog Lane and even though I have a Sat Nav I still got lost because I was directed to the wrong school!!! Anyway, they were very polite and told me where the right school was. Cherry Fold Primary has links to Barton Primary, a school I have visited twice before (I got lost the first time I tried to find Barton Primary as well!!!!!) Despite all the confusion, I was made very welcome and I had a really great day working with everyone there and making poems.

This is a poem Y5 and Y6 liked. it was for the  Outer Space book but didn’t quite make it but it’s about eating fried chicken and finding out that sometimes the bits of chicken you get from the take-away place can’t be real chicken because there are too many legs and wings!

It’s Chicken, But Not As We Know It.

 

I bought some chicken pieces

From the fried chicken shop

When I opened up my bucket

My eyes began to pop.

 

Three legs and nine wings

In golden crunchy batter

But I couldn’t eat them up

Something was the matter.

 

A chicken never flies,

A chicken never sings

And a chicken hasn’t got

Three legs and nine wings

A chicken always has

Just two of these things

But this chicken’s got

Three legs and nine wings!

 

So if you buy a bucket

Of chicken that is fried

You might find a space-man

Sitting there inside

 

Saying ‘Don’t eat me please

Stop your lips from licking

I’ve come to find

My nine-legged chicken!’

 

A chicken never flies,

A chicken never sings

And a chicken hasn’t got

Three legs and nine wings

A chicken always has

Just two of these things

But this chicken’s got

Three legs and nine wings!

 

Don’t be tempted

To find an explanation

This is a warning

To the chicken eating nation.

 

 

Sometimes a chicken

Isn’t what it seems

It can bring you nightmares

Instead of tasty dreams.

 

A chicken never flies,

A chicken never sings

And a chicken hasn’t got

Three legs and nine wings

A chicken always has

Just two of these things

But this chicken’s got

Three legs and nine wings!
