How to make a poem really boring. Surely you'd read it all to begin with and then explain anything they didn't understand. Children who have never seen frost? Maybe it was intended for children in another country.
I couldn't listen to the whole thing. Tedious in the extreme.
Poetry for old fogeys:
Each to their own
OP, is this supposed to be a punitive experience for students in detention, or an after school presentation for staff?
(Well done Mrs Bharti for your measured and erudite YouTube comment-may I please borrow it?)
Over here we pronounce it 'specter'
She sounded bored herself.
It reminded me why I hated English literature as a child.
p.s. I lasted to 1.35, anyone manage more?
"This is a thrush. It's a kind of bird."
I used to have to explain what an Elm was ("Porphyria's Lover") but there are none of them left.
And the lady's delivery is beyond dull.
I would be too ashamed to put this on youtube.
Maybe Ofsted or SLT like it. Maybe she is SLT? Yes, that makes sense...
Was the script copied from this book?
I was expecting more..........
Jack and Dhil went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water,
Jack fell down and grazed his hand,
And immediately got sent to first aid.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a 3ft fall,
All the claims guys and the lawyer men,
Ensured Janice never did lunch duty again
(And I dare not even attempt Baa Baa Black Sheep!)
My version of Miss Polly that I sang to my children when they were young and they thought they were the proper words until they started school (What a b* stard I am!)
Miss Polly had a dolly who was not very well
So she called for the doctor to come immediately
The doctor came with his bag and his cap
And he knocked at the door with a bang, bang, bang, bang
He looked at the dolly and he shook her hand
And said Miss Polly put her straight in her cot
He wrote on a pad for a prescription
I'll be back in the morning to collect your payment.
