Visiting Gladstone School … The winning Auckland School

Gladstone School was the Auckland winner of The Third Fabulous Poetry Competition. So I am spending today and tomorrow at the school. Thanks to The Nw Zealand Book Council for supporting this competition and helping me pick the winners.

First up the Year One and Twos. Here are the poems we made up. They sat for a whole hour and were hooked on poems.

My Russian blue cat
scratches all the time
like a tiger,
sleeps and purrs
frisky cat.

My cat likes
to eat tuna
and cheese,
scrumple scrumple.

My cat likes
to sleep in my bed
on the sofa
on the cushions
on the table.

She does a somersault.
She brushes my tail.
