A Surprise Visitor - April 2021

 

Year 3 had a visitor in the classroom, a tiny field mouse crept in, so we rescued it then used the visit to inspire us to write a class poem!

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Hiding everywhere,

Behind a cushion, under a chair.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Scurrying around,

Trying hard, not to be found.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

As black as soot,

Ah! He’s now, under my foot.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Oh what a fuss,

He’s running around as fast as a bus.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Oh what a to-do,

Three teachers and thirty children too.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Oh what shall we do?

It really is a hullabaloo.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Finally set free,

Now he can go home for his tea.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Oh no, he’s come back,

And poor Miss Lane can’t bend her back.

 

Mouse in the classroom,

Mrs Powley can’t see,

That leaves Mrs Masterson and Mrs Cameron to set him free.

 

Written by Class 3L

 

Based on the poem ‘Dog in the Playground’ by Allan Ahlberg

Inspired by a mouse in the classroom yesterday morning.

Year Three were very lucky to listen to a talk about 'Rocks and Crystals' as part of their science work. Mr Secker brought in a selection of rocks and crystals and we found out where they come from in the world and learnt all of their names.
