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, kissed a baboon
And had coffee at Buckingham Palace.
Then on a whim, I went for a swim
And had lunch with a cowboy in Dallas.
Then, 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.
Perhaps you might think this was silly.
So I climbed down again, took a plane out to Spain
And it was here that I surfed on a swell.
And what about you? Well what did you do?
Was your weekend quite busy as well?
