We made up this story, after finding an old old book, and imagining......
Many years ago, in a hot country miles away, there lived a kind old man, with a long black beard.
At first, he lived in a town, but he had no money, no clothes, no water and food and no shoes, and the people of the town were horrible to him. So he walked from the town, up the hills, and he found a dark, rock, scary, whispering cave where he could live. Still he had nothing to eat and drink. He had no friends.
Tinkerbell was a beautiful fluffy furry cat; a roary, rat-catching cat; a greedy cat who loved to eat other people’s food. One day Tinkerbell was walking in the hills outside the town, and she walked into the cave. There in the cave was some fish. The man had been to the sea to fish for food, and had caught a few fish. He was looking forward to eating it. Tinkerbell saw the pile of fish and snatched it, eating every last bit. The old man chased her round and round but he could not catch her, and he sat sadly in his cave, crying. He was as hungry and lonely as ever. The cat had gone, and so had all his fish.
But, Tinkerbell felt sorry for the man, and she had gone all the way to the sea herself. When she had caught even more fish than the man, she brought it back to his cave. She gave the man the fish, and helped him, by cutting it up with her claws.
As they sat and ate the fish, a tall hairy, scary bear from the nearby cave stomped in. They were frightened of the bear, but he meant no harm, and soon all three of them were friends, sharing their food, and laughing and playing together in the caves. The old man wrote all about how they met, and their adventures together, into a big old diary, and that is how we know about it now.
and this is a poem we made up together...
Rainbow-coloured happiness skips into the room,
Ten smiling heads
With flowing golden hair,
Purring, miaowing and hooting,
As it hugs
With its three warm arms.
Colourful and colourless together,
Lifting us all to the ceiling.
I LOOKED AT THE TOWN AND I SAW…
I LOOKED AT THE TOWN AND I SAW…
ONE WICKED WIDE WONDERFUL WHEEL TWIRLING
TWO RED LEAFY BEAUTIFUL TREES BLOWING
THREE BUSY BIG BRILLIANT SHOPS SELLING
FOUR TALL TOWER CUBOID FLATS STANDING
FIVE BUMPING FAST SHINY CARS BEEPING…..
and some written by individual Year 2 pupils......
I looked at Ireland and I saw…
One yellow little Mercedes car driving
Two tall wide enormous hotels opening and closing
Three big gigantic huge cinemas showing films
Four black, brown and white cows munching hay
Five good male fat horses galloping
I went to Jamaica and I looked at
One big fierce shark biting
Two terrible dolphins eating
Three wild little fish swimming
Four lovely red seagulls flying
Five beautiful small turtles sleeping
Six tall scary starfish sticking
Seven pretty baby whales diving.
I went to the zoo and I saw
One stripy black and white zebra running
Two spotty giraffes munching the juicy leaves
Three green frogs jumping in the water
Four colourful children looking at the woolly sheep
Five soft bunnies eating orange carrots
Six playful cats eating grey mice
Seven brown and white dogs biting yummy bugs
Eight happy birds singing to the lovely people
Nine skinny hens laying white eggs
Ten scary sharks biting yummy yummy fish.
