A swimmer, a cat, or an alien?

Creative five and six-year-old pupils from Reay Primary School in Kennington, South London, wrote these fantastic rhymes - and drew some wonderful pictures to go with them. 

They were taking part in a Gifted & Talented workshop with seven other primary schools in the Kennington area.  We pretended to be characters from my book I Could Be, You Could Be - after all, everyone should be an alien at least once in their lives! 

Then they used the structure in my book to understand how rhymes work and then to write their own.  No-one cared if it didn't make sense.  That was part of the fun.
