'Together Everyone Achieves More'

Key Stage 1


How good to lie a little while
And look up through the tree!
The Sky is like a kind big smile
Bent sweetly over me.

The Sunshine flickers through the lace
Of leaves above my head,
And kisses me upon the face
Like Mother, before bed.

The Wind comes stealing o'er the grass
To whisper pretty things;
And though I cannot see him pass,
I feel his careful wings.

So many gentle Friends are near
Whom one can scarcely see,
A child should never feel a fear,
Wherever he may be.

The Snowky Pokey

(To the tune of Hokey Pokey)


You put your right mitten in

Your right mitten out

Your right mitten in

And you shake it all about


You do the snowky pokey

And you turn around

That’s what it’s all about



Trick or Treat?

Haunted houses,
Curdling screams,
Freezing bats, torn at the seams!

Full white moon,
Dripping candles,
Roaming forgetful zombie vandals!

Gnarled old trees,
Tossed in the breeze.
Cold ghosts shivering, knocking their knees!

Trick and treating,
From door to door,
Not enough sweets, I must have more!!!


The green leaves are turning
To yellow, red and brown
And when the wind comes
Whistling by, they'll



Rainbow Colours 


Red for tomatoes,

Red for a rose,

Red for my socks

Pulled on my toes.

Orange for a mango,

Orange for a peach,

Orange for an orange

That is out of reach.

Yellow for melons,

Yellow for sun,

Yellow for buttercups

Picked one by one.*

Green for a meadow,

Green for the grass,

Green for a hedge

Where I must pass.

Blue for a bluebell,

Blue for the sea,

Blue for the sky                     

All around me.

Indigo for a grape,

Indigo for blueberry too,

Not quite violet,

Not quite blue.

Violet for heather,

Violet for a flower,

You’ll only get a rainbow

With sun and a shower.

World Book Day


Should I be a princess
for our school book day?
Or the wicked witch?
A thief from a play?

I could be a werewolf
or a shy mermaid.
Or maybe even
a night from the crusade.

I wore a furry suit
with flippers, wand and shall.
I simply couldn’t choose…
so I dressed as them all.


Crossing the street


Stop, look, and listen
before you cross the street.
Use your eyes and use your ears
before you use your feet.

Look to your left
then look to your right
and to your left once more.
You must be really careful.
That’s what rules are for!
