Year 6 Blue - Limericks
27 Sep 2018
Limericks have been the focus for reading and writing in Year 6 Blue. Students were given many opportunities to share and read the poetry genre of limericks.
They were then able to identify the criteria for writing a limerick. To be successful at writing limericks, the poet uses a specific rhyming pattern [a - a -b - b - a], the poem is humorous and tends to make sense from nonsense, often through the use of different figures of speech.
Have they been successful? Yes!
Read and enjoy these limericks written by 6 Blue ‘jest for fun’!
Soccer is never that boring
Passing until you give the ball a wack
If you don’t score your coach might even give you a smack
Come on give it a go soccer is not a sport you should be ignoring
She liked to drink lemonade
She let out a burp
She had her last slurp
And decided to drink Gatorade
I feel like a fool.
I so want to cry
I want to deny.
This is so uncool.
Named Mr Blizzard
That lived in a shoe
And would always say moo
Oh! that lizard named Mr Blizzard
I couldn’t think of one, which made me panic and shudder.
It was my homework, I didn’t want a hit from the cane,
The pain from it was incredibly insane
In fact, it was more of a murder!
Who skipped right into a wall.
He bumped his head,
And ate some bread
Then got hit with a bowling ball.
Really liked to play ping pong
She hit the ball
It hit the wall
And it made a big bong

Where lived a mouse
The mouse could eat cheese all day
But he was on a strict diet so he said ‘No way’
This house housed a very strange mouse
Went outside when it was chilly
Well that’s what I chose
I did something silly.
Because soccer is my drug.
Running, Kicking, Scoring goals,
It’s so much more fun than playing Lawn Bowls.
Soccer is the Best, if someone asks you to play don’t give them a shrug.
Who thought he’d found a magical potion.
He took a big drink,
and started to think
it tasted like suntan lotion.
Jinkins heard someone at the door
He thought it was quite odd
So, he went and told his mate Todd
All on a morning at four
What is that at the door
Just a bit
Now close it and count to four
In all these sports people get cocky
Sport is great for exercise
Luckily in these sports no one dies
There is a boxer in a movie and his name is rocky
His very best friends name was Timmy
And His pants fell down
And then he went strolling down town
When he went down town he did the shimmy
All the kids thought he was scary,
Dad starts to crack up and laugh,
And Mum starts to feel shivers down her calf,
And let me tell you now he does not look like a fairy.
She always rode in great concourses.
She was rather wild,
But not very reviled,
And she couldn't resist the workhorses.
Could make "copy" from any old thing.
But the copy he wrote,
Of a five-dollar note,
Was so good he is now wears so much bling.
Who went to the moon in a rocket
The rocket went BANG!
His braces went TWANG!
And his false teeth fell in his pocket
Interrupted two girls and their kitten
He said with a sigh
That wooden bench - well I
Just painted it right where you’re sitt’n
He owned a fancy old coat
He looked after it nice
And ate pudding and rice
A fancy goat with a coat

Supporting this great cause is making so much important work possible. Through funding life-saving research, prevention programs and support services, we're helping to make a real difference to people affected by cancer. That's a wonderful thing.

AFL Congratulations to the Boys and Girls AFL teams who played in the Paul Kelly Cup last week 🤩🏈 With only 4 out of the 30 students with any playing experience it was fantastic to see the massive amount of growth and development in a very short space of time. Both teams won 3 out of their 4 pool games and finished 2nd in their pool managing to shake off the Mr Kovelis losing curse. The boys' team lost their semi final by a single point to the eventual winners of the competition Kellyville PS. They then went on to beat Kings Langley PS (who had beaten St Michael's earlier in the day) convincingly in the 3rd vs 4th playoff 👏 The girls team also played Kellyville PS in the semi finals but were able to come through with the win. In the final they played Schofield PS who they had played earlier in the day and won 4-1. In a tough physical game they really showed their dominance, running away with it in the end 29-1 🤩👏 Scarlett Barakat was named 'best on ground' for the final. Notable mention to Halle Fleming who found her favourite position at full forward with a bag full of goals in the second half and to the players who realised by their last game that the field they were playing on all day was Oval shaped ! The girls now progress to the Greaters Western Sydney Regional Final early next term 🥳🤩 Well done to both teams & good luck girls in the regional final. Thank you also to the parents who were able to help out with teams during the day. Maybe a few future AFL coaches in the mix.
