Bean School Opens
Bean School is open, but it's not the same
New gates, new doors, even my classroom's changed
There are signs outside and tape on the floor
At times I'm tempted to feel forlorn
But wait, who's that, I can see my friend
Jumping and skipping, again and again
With a smile as big as a dinner plate
It's all ok, but oh, I'm late!
-Everything is different-
Everything is different
Going to the shops?
No-one to be seen
Going to school?
Keep social distance
Are you bored at home?
Try playing a game
Everything is different
Should we be worrying?
Our street was once a peaceful place
We played and people could jog
But our quiet life shattered
When we got our new dog
He is very noisy and loud
He wakes up the whole street at 6 am
He is very fun and always wants to play
But no-one wants to do it his way
Everyone in the street hates our dog
But one day I thought about it
All our poor little dog wants is to be loved
I don’t care if the street hates my dog
(They are always quite grumpy anyway)
I love my dog. I love how he likes to play
And I don’t care what the street say
He is being himself and that’s why I am proud to say
I’m glad we got a dog the other day
Noah’s Fishing Adventure
I went fishing with my dad in June
Something tells me we went too soon
Dad bought some rods and reels online
Hoping that all would be fine
We went to a lake on a hot Summer’s day
The wind howled and kept blowing our tent away
The lake was a hive of activity
I managed to cast my line into a tree
We sat on the bank, it was hot like Spain
Which makes a change from cold and rain
But we caught no fish, it was really sad
I can’t help that my dad’s so bad!
By lunchtime we were seriously sweaty
My dad became a scruffy yeti
Weeds were all we managed to catch
My dad said “that’s enough of that!”
We left in a rush, it wasn’t too soon
I was desperately in need of the loo
Whoosh! We were home as quick as can be
I was relieved, I don’t like fishing really
Our house was once a peaceful place,
We used to have some personal space.
But now we have a new kitten,
And almost everyday I get bitten.
Her name is Gucci,
And she was more expensive than Fiorucci.
She is small and sneaky,
Playful and cheeky.
If she's hungry, she will lick me,
And that for sure, is a guarantee.
After I feed her, we play this game,
It's always the same.
I'll get the laser,
(Which isn't a taser).
Then she'll go to sleep,
And I mustn't make a beep.
But if I wake the cat,
She will get her combat.
We woke at 3 in the morning excitement in my eyes
I couldn’t wait!!
When the coach arrived I said “time to go” I cried
Let’s go to the airport to get on the plane
We went through security
Now it time to go to Spain.
Wow were almost there it is so sunny
When we got there it was so hot
So we put our hair in as scrunchy
We had to drive on the left hand side it was NOT easy
It was so hot my feet were cheesy
We got to where we stayed it was like a mansion with our very own pool
The best thing about the pool
Was because it was cool
We played in it ALL day
It was the best 10 days of Spain
Hope I go next year
P.s this was in 2018
"There was once a small village school
Where pupils and staff were very keen
Amongst green fields and trees
You could find it in Bean.
Every day its gates were welcoming
All the happy and smiley children
Who could not wait to be learning and playing there...
Then one day in March it all came to a halt
When an unknown pandemic
Led us all to stop our life with a jolt...
Uncertainty fell upon Bean primary
And its gates and classrooms doors
Closed behind the worry and concerns had by many...
But that was only temporary
As surely soon after that
The brave staff and keen teachers
Returned to their duty implementing
The "wash your hands" song
and the "rule of the 2 metres"
Slowly then gates and classrooms started to reopen
Welcoming back chatter and laughter
The rules were set and clearly spoken
In this new world where the 2 metres rule would open a new chapter..."
