Our Poems
The fairy godmother
asked Cinderella
To get her a pumpkin
Because she wanted to make it into a carriage
For Cinderella to go to the palace so she could dance with the prince
On Saturday night.
(Written by: Sara-Jane, Vuyakazi, Rosemary M, Madeleine and Natalie

Ate pumpkin fritters with sugar and cinnamon
Because it tastes delicious
In a big, smart restaurant
At Saturday lunchtime.
(Written by: Melissa C, Melissa H, Emma, Georgia, Jessica S,  Nomahlubi and Jaime)
Farmer Macdonald
grows pumpkins
Because he likes to eat them
When they are ripe, for his dinner.
His wife makes pumpkin pie
In the big farm kitchen.

Is growing
Up into the sky
Because Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater was going to eat him
On Monday morning.
