4O

Our team name for this year is the Performing Poets!

 

Instead of having one class song, we aim to learn one poem every half term.

 

This half term we will be learning From a Railway Carriage by Robert Louis Stevenson. Your challenge is to learn this off by heart. MEGA table points available for the first group to do so!!!

 

 

Here it is....

 

Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All through the meadows the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by.

 

Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,
All by himself and gathering brambles;
Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;
And there is the green for stringing the daisies!
Here is a cart run away in the road
Lumping along with man and load;
And here is a mill and there is a river:
Each a glimpse and gone for ever!

From a Railway Carriage by Robert Louis Stevenson

Here is Michael Rosen reading the classic poem
