  3. My reception class love it.

    Humpty Dumpty sat on the chair
    While the barber cut his hair
    He cut it long, he cut it short
    He cut it with a knife and fork

    Hope this helps!

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
    All the King's horses and all the King's men
    said
    "OH NO! not scrambled eggs for dinner again."

  10. Thanks all. Just put all these on a smartnotebook file and upload to resources, but it won't let me so if you want a copy then let me know (it's only very simple)x

    Humpty Dumpty rolled on his back.
    Humpty Dumpty got a big crack.
    All the King?s glue and the best Royal Vet
    Haven?t been able to patch him up yet.

    Humpty Dumpty fell off his bike.
    Humpty Dumpty started to hike.
    But both of his boots and laces as well
    Got in a tangle so over he fell.

    Humpty Dumpty got in his car.
    Humpty Dumpty didn?t get far.
    The engine went vroooom and the horn gave a cough.
    Then all of the wheels came tumbling off.

    Humpty Dumpty sat down to tea.
    Humpty Dumpty didn?t ask me.
    He licked at his lips and he nodded his head.
    Then Humpty Dumpty ate all the jam and the bread.

    Humpty Dumpty started to dance
    Over the channel and off into France.
    He slipped on a stone and his brittle shell broke.
    Then Humpty?s clothes were covered in yolk.



    I saw Humpty Dumpty
    On a supermarket shelf
    He was sitting on an egg box
    Looking sorry for himself.

    I tried to cheer him up a bit
    By giving him a pat.
    But then he rolled right off the shelf?
    Help! No! Splat!

    Sorry Humpty Dumpty egg.
    I really didn?t know
    That if I tried to pat you,
    That?s the way you?d go.



    Send for the sellotape.
    Go and get the glue.
    Silly old Humpty,
    What a thing to do.
    Fancy climbing up there
    And sitting on the wall.
    Didn?t someone tell you,
    You were bound to fall?


     
  14. Hello.

    Have you read 'Little Lumpty' by Miko Imai? It's not really a funny version of the rhyme, but a story about an egg who lives in the same town and is warned not to go up the wall because he heard what happened to Humpty. Might fit into your planning.

  15. All sent.

    Snuggly, I do know about 'Little Lumpty' we had it in our last school. However I have tried to buy in past it's out of print, in fact your link was only to used books, not from amazon and starting from £24.95 and I'm not that rich! Shame as it's a lovely book - maybe we should start a campaign to bring it back!
     
  16. Sorry, I didn't even look at the price! What a shame it is out of print!

    Snuggly x
