Registration

Age Range: 7 - 11
By: A Visitor

I recently did some poetry work with my class (Y3/4) on the subject of school. We took the poem 'Registration' by Allan Ahlberg and changed it to suit our modern life. For example...

James Bond?
Kissing the girls, Miss!
Spice Girls?
Girl Power, Miss!
George of the jungle?
Mind the tree, Miss! etc,

The children chose the characters as a class, and then went away in twos to come up with the responses. We then chose the funniest, put it together as a whole class and performed it for assembly.

Here is the original:

Emma Hackett?
Here, Miss!
Billy McBone?
Here, Miss!
Derek Drew?
Here, Miss!
Margaret Thatcher?
Still here, Miss! (We changed this to Tony Blair)

Long John Silver?
Buccaneer, Miss!
Al Capone?
Racketeer, Miss!
Isambard Kingdom Brunel?
Engineer, Miss!
David Crockett?
Wild Frontier, Miss!
Frank Bruno?
Cauliflower ear, Miss!

The White Rabbit?
Late, Miss!
Billy the Kid?
Infants, Miss!
Simple Simon?
Here, Sir!
Father Christmas?
Present (for you), Miss!
Count Dracula?
1, 2, 3, 4, Miss!
Necks door, Miss!
Dentist's!

The Invisible Man?
Nowhere, Miss!
Almighty God?
Everywhere, Miss!
Tarzan?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Miss.
Sleeping Beauty? Zzz, Miss!
