Eithne's is a girls' school you see
It also has a nursery
The girls they shout and smile with glee
When it's time to learn their history
principal's name is Miss Corboy
She likes to see us girls enjoy
Our teacher's name is Ms. Curry
She is very nice and can be funny
school we have so much fun
but when it's time we've to knuckle down and get things done
built a pond and shrubs and seeds and have little tadpoles swimming
It's nice to do things for the planet
It makes us proud and very happy

it the words, the rhythm or is it the rhyming
a verse there has to be good timing
good poem does not have to rhyme
I write them like that all the time!
we write poems in school I get really excited
because I do it all the time it's not that hard to write it!
HC, 5th class
Poem by ASC, 3rd class
is very keen to keep our school green and clean
up we don't mean to nag
Follow our green rules and we can keep our green flag
Think of this as something new to do
At home and in school it is green
It is clean
Don't set pollution
Set a solution
Trip to the Playground
my family and I went to the playground because it was sunny. First
I got ready and had breakfast. I wore jeans and a t-shirt. They
had flowers on them. They were so cosy and warm. Next I got into
the car. My car was very dark purple, almost black. It was very
clean. We went to get petrol.
and I were so hungry so we got an ice-cream. It was vanilla. It
was nice and cold. My mum got a cone and chocolate. Later we went
to the park. It was huge. There were loads of children there.
I went on the big slide. Then I went on the swings.
nana came in her car and we went home. My nana brought sandwiches
with ham on them. It was a nice sunny day. I had great fun.

the 13th of December my family had a surprise party for me in
Energy. First my dad said he had to get money from a man. We arrived
outside a place called Energy. We parked the car and then I saw
my cousin Aoife. I told my mam that I saw her and we went in to
say hi. Next I walked in and all my cousins jumped out and shouted
SURPRISE. I got a big fright and then my mam said this is your
birthday party. So we took off our shoes and jackets off and then
we got vests. Mine said It's my birthday on it. After a while
Gemma arrived. Gemma gave me a present. We went around to where
my mam and family were sitting. We gave it to her to mind so off
we went to play. Later my name got called out and we went into
a room. Everyone sang Happy Birthday to me. It was a great birthday.

up in my head,
from all the writing,
of them in bed.
When I dream,
I dream of this,
So if you
ever need me,
In my imaginary
No one ever
I call it mine,
it for ages,
are cooks so cruel?
Because they batter the fish, beat the eggs, and whip the icecream.
What's another name for Dracula?
A pain in the neck
doctor my husband just swallowed a fountain pen. What shall I
Use a pencil till I get there.
was a fence put around a graveyard?
Because people were dying to get in.
is a skunk different to a rabbit?
A It uses a cheaper
Why are Leopards
not good at hide and seek?
Because they're always spotted !
What do you
get if you cross a man-eating shark with a helicopter?
A helichopper !
If a buttercup
is yellow what colour is a hiccup?
A Burple !
What is an
An Eskimo's house without a loo.
Why are sausages
so bad mannered?
Because they spit in the frying pan !

HALLOWE'EN POEM- by SC 5TH CLASS
is so scary,
might dress up as a princess fairy,
should keep your dogs in at night,
they will get a big fright.
put up decorations
make it look like a celebration
ghosts like to say boo
sometimes they say how do you do?
can't wait for Hallowe'en
like a big scary dream
have my costumes all picked out
think there are witches creeping about.

everyone who's out will get a big

CLASS - a poem by K.S. 6TH CLASS
like the children in my class
are so good, not bold as brass
They take their time and do their work
They have some fun and jobs are perks
They never fiddle or make a mess
They learn and learn for their test
They are never silly, they are very smart
They listen carefully while doing art
They do their best in everything
And sit quietly when they hear the bell ring.
- by KS 6TH CLASS
all go to the same school,
no walk in the park,
no dip in the pool
have to work really hard and do our best,
like it's all work, no play and never any rest.
in sixth class now and we have to make our Confirmation,
should be glad that we're one of God's creations.
least we have our friends to get us through each year,
we still have to go to secondary school and college to get a good

POEM BY ES, CO'T & LMCD - 5th CLASS
