Activity 1

For your final 3 activities we couldn't resist revisiting one of our favourite poetry books; Allan Ahlberg's Please Mrs Butler.


We are going to be using the poem the collection is named after - Please Mrs Butler. I know most of you already know the poem quite well so today's task is a missing word task!


I want you to have a go at filling in the blanks from the poem below by choosing suitable words. If you already know the words from the poem this is your chance to mix it up and reinvent the poem by changing them to your own! It can be as silly as you like but please don't make it too rude! 


If you want an extra challenge try and make sure the poem still rhymes!


Have fun and send your new versions of the poem to me in an email on Purple Mash. I will love reading them!
