We are back to school this week. We have learned a lot of new poems and songs. Ms Burke is our teacher. We are really excited about starting second class.
The poems we have learned this week are:
Seachain an Crogall!
Tá crogall san uisce,
Nach gránna é!
Itheann sé páistí,
Le haghaidh an tae.
Dia duit, a chrogaill,
Ná maraigh mé!
An ligfidh tú trasna na habhann mé?
by Roald Dahl
"No animal is half as vile
As Crocky–Wock, the crocodile.
On Saturdays he likes to crunch
Six juicy children for his lunch
And he especially enjoys
Just three of each, three girls, three boys.
He smears the boys (to make them hot)
With mustard from the mustard pot.
But mustard doesn't go with girls,
It tastes all wrong with plaits and curls.
With them, what goes extremely well
Is butterscotch and caramel.
It's such a super marvelous treat
When boys are hot and girls are sweet.
At least that's Crocky's point of view
He ought to know. He's had a few.
That's all for now. It's time for bed.
Lie down and rest your sleepy head.
Ssh. Listen. What is that I hear,
Galumphing softly up the stair?
Go lock the door and fetch my gun!
Go on child, hurry! Quickly run!
No stop! Stand back! He's coming in!
Oh, look, that greasy greenish skin!
The shining teeth, the greedy smile!
It's Crocky–Wock, the Crocodile!"
