The Hard Life of a Conker


It's hard to be a conker

Picked up from the ground in autumn

Hole drilled through your middle

String knotted so you hang,


Until you split -

The end of it.

by Ivan Jones.

Here is the class performance poem. The classteacher will work on this with you during September.


Years 1 & 2 Class Poem

Pirate Pete
had a ship on the sea
had a fish for his tea
had a peg for a knee
and a tiny little parrot called…Polly

Pirate Pete
had a book with a map
had a skull on his cap
had a cat on his lap
and another little parrot called…Dolly

Pirate Pete
had a trunk full of treasure
had a belt made of leather
had a cap with a feather
and another little parrot called…Jolly

Pirate Pete
had a patch on his eye
had a flag he would fly
had a plank way up high
and another little parrot called…Molly

So, Pirate Pete
and the parrots four
they sailed the world
from shore to shore –
collecting gold
and gifts galore.
And that’s their tale –
there is no more!
