Our Focus Poem for Autumn 2
A bone thief,
Entered my home,
Came to my room,
And stole my arm’s bone...
“Give me my bone back!”
I screamed at the thief,
"I need my arm's bone,
Like a branch,
Needs a leaf!
I use all my bones,
To keep me alive!
I need 206!
Give me my bone,
It’s calcium rich,
When I've got a big ball game,
I need bones to pitch!
Supporting my body,
Where heart, kidneys, lungs,
Where organs reside!
Give me my bone back!"
I yelled at the thief,
And finally he gave it,
What a relief…
He gave me my bone back,
And left without harm,
Now all the right bones,
Are in my right arm...
Our focus book for Autumn 1 is 'The Way Back Home'
