Welcome to Year 6
Roald Dahl Day
Wednesday 13th September was Roald Dahl Day and the Children in Year 6 really enjoyed re-enacting his Revolting Rhymes!
They had a go at writing their own!
Rapunzel the lettuce girl wasn’t so glad,
When a tug on her hair revealed a fat lad,
Prince Plip of Flop A Lot, dribbling chin,
yelled, Hey you, lettuce me in!
As he ascended up her locks,
Spreading the smell of rotten old socks,
She felt her hair ripping,
as princie's chin was a dripping,
“I’m bald!” Cried poor old blondie locks,
As Plip fell two feet off of the ground,
Immersed in hair, possibly drowned.
“Will you still marry me? Here and here?”
“Unzel, that wasn’t my intention dear.
I am sure you will be in despair,
for all I wanted was your hair.
I need a silky coat for my son
and you had just the hair do hun!”
And so he left without a trace,
and blondie vanished in disgrace,
Apperaing not so shortly after,
in the freak show in Poncafter!
The laughing stock for the crowd,
Miss Bauldy Locks, harrow, harrow!
