Activity Sheet No 10

This week we are looking at the way the sights and sounds of a steam railway have inspired people to write poetry.

Bailey likes to write poems and somehow he seems to find time when he is supposed to be busy looking after the railway! This one gives us an idea of how hard he is working at the moment with no one to check up on him!

The stationís all quiet,

thatís perfect for me.

A sleep in the office

and then time for tea.

Perhaps Bailey should be joining Joe Wicks for some excersise otherwise he is going to end up like the bear in AA Milneís poem!

A bear, however hard he tries,
Grows tubby without exercise.
Our Teddy Bear is short and fat,
Which is not to be wondered at.
But do you think it worries him
To know that he is far from slim?
No, just the other way about -
He's proud of being short and stout.
