Revolting Rhymes - Jack and The Bean Stalk

Jack and his Mum did not have any money, so his Mum sent him off to sell the cow for £100.
Jack goes off with the cow but trades her in for just a useless bean, or that's what his Mum thought, and she throws it out of the window onto the rubbish dump. After that she smacks his bottom with the handle of the vacuum cleaner. She was really cruel to Jack and calls him a lunatic.

But suddenly overnight the bean became a giant beanstalk, and in the morning Jack shows it to his Mum, and at the top there are solid gold leaves. When she sees the leaves, she yells at Jack to go and get the golden leaves, because she suddenly realises they will have lots of money if they get them.

Jack climbs up, but he hears a giant thunderous sound saying ' Fee Fy Fo Fum I smell the blood of an Englishman '

Jack rushes down in half a tick and tells his mum that the giant can smell him and that he had a clever nose. His Mum tells him he stinks and needs a bath, but Jack says 'if you are so clean why don't you climb up the beanstalk ?' So she does. Then she gets eaten up straight away by the giant !! Jack doesn't cry when the giant eats his Mum.

Jack then goes and has a bath, brushes his teeth, washes his hair, blows his nose, and comes out smelling like a rose. Jack climbs the beanstalk again, and takes lots of golden leaves. He reckons he will have a bath every day as it seems to pay off.

What I think about this Poem ...

I like this poem because it always rhymes at the end of the lines. There are lots of versions of this story, but this one has rhymes in it and it's funny. Jack's Mum is really cruel, even after the beanstalk grows and she sees the golden leaves, and Jack is only so stinky because his mum makes Jack do almost all the work.

This kind of poem is fun, but a bit cruel and naughty with a few nasty words. I suppose that is why it's in a book called Revoltnig Rhymes'!

Jelly Bean Haiku

Yummy and squishy
Full of wonderful colours
Just like it should be!

Christmas Haiku

A time when Santa
Comes on a mysterious night
And leaves lots of gifts.

Swimming Haiku

Swimming in water,
Arms and legs moving quickly. 
Look under water.

Pet Haiku

Cat Haiku
Mysterious cats,
With very odd eye colors 
Sleeping all day long.
=^● ⋏ ●^=

Dog Haiku
Man's best companian
They have big innocent eyes
Eager to play games.

Bird Haiku
Twittering and small
Cheeping for more food to eat
Clawing out pink worms.

Bunny Haiku
Chubby and so cute
Hopping and fluffy tails shake
Peacefully eating grass.

Haiku of Roald Dahl

                                I like Roald Dahl.
                                His books are of adventures
                                And of real laughter.

Fire rises up
Beautifully lit on candles
Flashing hot fire.

Earth Haiku

Earth, our own planet
Earth, in our wide galaxy
We love planet Earth!

Air Haiku

Feel the gentle breeze
That flows you away in air
Gentle air swirls by.

Water Haiku

See the wonderful
Water swirls round in wet mouths
Feel the fresh water!

Autumn Haiku

Here are some more Haiku poems written about Autumn.  Some of us were inspired to write more than one!  We hope you enjoy reading them.
               The silent brown trees,                                             It’s Autumn, leaves fall,
                           Insects crawling up the trees,                              The leaves change their colour green,
Beautiful Autumn.                                                   Frogs jump in a pond

                      By Aksh and Advait                                                                By Miguel and Vega

        Temperature gets cold,              Some trees change colours,           Fires are burning strong,
   Some animals hibernate,           Winter coming very soon,              Trees coloured orange and red,
We know it’s Autumn.                We start wearing coats.                  Leaves are falling down.

                                                        By Jesse and Irene

The trees leaves fall down,                                        Places are different
     The ground gets covered in leaves,                          People change clothes in Autumn,
         Colours change the floor.                                           Gardens are messy.

                                                                    By Sara and Luis

             Trees blow in the wind,                                  The leaves change to brown,
       Lots of trees die in Autumn,                           People make a huge bonfire,
The rain makes it cold.                                        Fog is very thick.

                                                        By Niamh and Matias

The wind blows quickly,                                             The sheep change fleeces,
     And the leaves fall down the trees,                         And the fireworks shoot up,
          And the rains fall down.                                             You wear your jumper.

                             The leaves change colour,
                                    And the night comes more quickly,
                                              You clean your garden.

                                                                                                             By Maria and David

       The leaves fall on the
            Floor and hit the ground with a
                  Sudden thud, waiting.

                             Brown leaves get blown by
                                    The wind and then they get burnt
                                      And turn to black ash.

                                                       In the misty wind,
                                                        Orange, yellow and brown leaves,
                                                               Swirl all around us.

                                                                                                                                        By Sanika and Tino

It tickles my hand
It’s like a small ladybird.
Go back to your tree.


Red spotty firebug,
You look like a ladybird,
You have lovely spots.


Sleepy praying priest,
Wish good luck to the firebug:
Fly baby firebug!


It smells like cherry,
Lavender feels soft like fur,
It has flowers on.


On the lavender
There is one last small flower
Which is dying now.


Olive tree, cold, freeze,
Rosemary, maple tree burns,
Lavender curls up.


Bushes that smell nice:
Lavender and Rosemary;
Not those spiky balls.


Old olive tree curled,
Enjoying the gentle breeze, 
Sprouting fresh olives.


 Light sings through the trees.
Leaves fall with a crunch of bugs.
The bugs are pretty crazy.


When the red leaves fall,
The red firebugs fall as well,
And caterpillars.


When the leaves fall down
They turn red and yellow up down
There are also fruit.


The maple is big,
Leaves have only six sides.
See, a spiky ball!


Green spikes everywhere,
Maple tree hung with stink bombs:
I gave one to Jacques.


Red maple tree leaf,
Falling on the short green grass,
I take you back home.


The outline is white.
It looks like it is cracking:
A baby bird’s egg.

Lies about the sky

We wrote some poems about the sky, following a certain pattern. Here's one of them:

In the chalk sky,
The green pterodactyl flew.
A diamond dropped,
Clouds ran,
The air froze,
The green sun grew flowers.
I ran to get the diamonds.
