Very Famous Feet

My very famous feet
Are walking down the street
Goal-scorers
Crowd-pleasers
My very famous feet

My very famous feet
Strangers to defeat
Penalty-takers
Boot-wearers
My very famous feet

My very famous feet
In trainers looking neat
Ball-dribblers
Cup-winners
My very famous feet

My very famous feet
Are rushing through the gate
Playground-pounders
Classroom-visitors
My very famous feet

My very famous
Very famous
My ‘Sorry I’m late, Miss’ feet

 

Trick or Treat? Halloween Poems for Kids

Children love it when the evenings are dark and Halloween is upon us. It’s a great opportunity for creative themed pictures, stories and poems in the classroom.

Here’s one of mine, from Wanted Alive (to buy a copy of this book please look at the books page on this site).

A Witch Must Have a Cat

Friendly Witch DrawingA witch must have a cat

So I cast a spell
But I got a rat
I mixed a potion
Out flew a bat

I wasn’t very happy about that
A witch must have a cat

I went to the pet shop
They locked me out
They said, “You’re the sort of customer
We can do without.”

I wasn’t very happy about that
A witch must have a cat

So I’m knocking on doors
Ratatat-tat
I’m looking for a suitable cat

If you’re the owner
I’ll pay well
But there’ll be trouble
If you won’t sell

I won’t be very happy about that
A witch must have a cat

Yes I’m knocking on doors
Ratatat-tat
I’ll be knocking on yours
Ratatat-tat

Ratatat-tat
Ratatat-tat
A witch must have a cat
