Funny Fred


I dreamt I had
a special pet
His name was Funny Fred
With a camel's hump
an elephant's trunk
and feathers on his head
Wings like a dragon
and feet like mine
in brightly coloured socks
A fish's tail
And yellow fur
All covered in colourful spots
His eyes were starts
And like a giraffe
He had a neck so tall
He was the strangest, weirdest
most unusual
funniest pet of all!




I Like Me


I like me, Yes, I like me
Being what only I can be,
I sometimes laugh;
I sometimes cry,
Sometimes sing, sometimes sigh.
I'm sometimes gentle;
I'm sometimes tough,
Sometimes soft
and sometimes rough,
I like me, yes I like me,
Being what only I can be




Only one Me


There's more than one bird,
There's more than one bee,
But there's only one sun,
One moon
And one ME.

There's more than one valley,
There's more than one tree,
But there's only one sun,
One moon
And one ME.

There's more than one mountain,
There's more than one sea,
But there's only one sun,
One moon
And one ME.



The Mirror



I looked into the mirror
To see what I could see,
And there I saw a funny face
Staring back at me.
So I puffed out my chest
And this is what I did.
I smiled at the mirror
And said...
"Hi, good-looking kid!"



I can


"I can't,"
said the sleepyhead.
"Not I."

"I can't,"
said the slowcoach.
"Not I."

"I can't,"
said the lazybones
"Not I."

But me?
I can, if I try.



Capitals


When starting a sentence
Or a line of verse,
A capital letter
Must always come first.

In the days of the week
Or the months of the year,
A capital letter
Must always appear.

For titles and names
Of particular things,
Particular places
And countries and Kings.

Remember this capital
Rule to apply
And speak to yourself
With a capital I.



Numbers


One is the number of legs when you hop,
Two is the ice-cream with two scoops on top,
Three is the traffic lights,
green-orange-red,
Four is the number of walls on a shed,
Five is the fingers on only one hand,
Six is the highest a dice can land.
We need seven players when netball time comes
And eight is your fingers without counting thumbs.
Nine is both hands with one thumb folded down
And ten is them all,
Come on, wave them around.



The Pinehill Way


A new kid came to school one day
Who did not know the Pinehill Way

We set out on a classroom quest
To teach them that the Pinehill Way is best!

We saw them kick...
We saw them hit...
An I message would do the trick!

"I fell sad when you hit, you hurt my feelings quite a bit!"

"It makes me angry when you kick, we need to teach you really quick!"

"when you say mean things to me, I feel sad and very lonely!"

"Please don't snatch that pen away, that is not the pInehill Way!"

With your friends you need to share,
That is how you show you care!

"Walk the talk" says Mr LeSeueur,
"YES" we say, we will for sure!

A new kid came to school one day
Who did not know the Pinehill Way

We helped them out,
We tought them well,
Now they love our school as well!

We hope you've learnt from this today,
And always use the Pinehill Way!
