As part of Poetry Week pupils were asked to produce their own poems.
In Chemistry Mr England asked Years 7 & 8 to produce poems linked to their lessons:
CHEMISTRY by Mattie Heathcote (year 7)
I walk into the lab,
The smell of chemicals floods the air
Like water puring through a dam to escape from its clutches.
Flames from a Bunsen burner
Dance in the air
Light footed, bright and freely
As if all of its worries had blown
Out of sight and vanished away
As if it had never been.
Liquids mix together to find a new
And better form,
Like magic their colours change
Its new adventure will take its form.
Gas pours from a tap into
Its jail unable to escape to
The starting mission
That waits outside.
CHEMISTRY POEM by Laura Wells (Year 8)
Here’s the rules, so listen good,
To get it right you really should,
Wear your goggles and be wary,
Some experiments get quite scary.
Mix some water with some salt,
It’s a soluble, that’s no fault.
If it’s corrosive do not spill,
Or your lab. coat will get a thrill.
Take your time and do not rush,
And you should never, ever push.
Roaring, high, medium flame,
Wear a lab coat it’s no game.
Gas to solid, or solid to gas,
It’s called subliming that’s a fact.
Chemicals are near, so don’t drink water,
There’s a thing you never oughta!
If flames break out that are not manageable,
Then we call this highly flammable.
These are the things it’s good to mention,
Or you’ll end up in detention!
Form 10 CH were challenged to use every letter of the alphabet:
ABC Poem by Aaron Howard
Every single lazy fish
Will end up in a yummy dish
The fishermen amuse themselves by playing a xylophone
They quarrel over the phone to ring their home phone
Jack is the owner of the boat so conducts the vote
About who deserves the warm coat
Akhmenrah started the world by Joe Knight
Akhmenrah started the world
Bananas love being hurled
Cats like eating post
Dogs love eating toast
Elephants jump on trampolines
Frogs favourite dish is baked beans
Giraffes eat radioactive cabbage
Hippos hate a savage cabbage
Iguanas live in mouldy bins
Jake loves to eat sharp pins
Kangaroos like bouncing up and down
Llamas always have a grumpy frown
Monkeys faces are not very nice
Nanny Macfee likes sugar and spice
Octopusses have suckery tentacles
Peter parrot’s friend is Johnny the sentinel
Quackidoo goes the duck on toast
Rooney’s no good at football, so delivers the post
Sunny days are always nice
Timmy turtle likes a slice
Underpass is a terrible map
Videos are old they set up traps
Windows smell of grumpy crumpets
X-rays can see rusty trumpets
Yankies smell of New York
Zebras favourite meat is pork!
