This is a very popular poem, and especially with my granddaughter. Aged just 6 years of age, when my books were published, she pounced on this poem, learned it off by heart and when the teacher asked if they'd had a nice weekend on the following Monday, she recited it, to the astonishment of the class. I was very proud of her when I heard the story. Perhaps this story will encourage children in your class to do the same. Josie
Yes, I certainly have . . .
For I flew to the moon, then I kissed a baboon
And had coffee at Buckingham Palace.
And then, on a whim, I went off for a swim
And had lunch with a cowboy in Dallas.
Then, just for a lark, I swam with a shark -
Though the sea was a little bit chilly.
So, to warm up my knees, I climbed a few trees.
Well perhaps you might think this was silly.
So I climbed down again, took a plane out to Spain.
It was here that I surfed on a swell.
And so what about you? Tell me what did you do?
I do hope you've been busy as well!
