Today's work is based on a poem by John Mbiti called The Snake Song.


Read the poem with a grown up and discuss the structure and patterns in the poem.


Try writing a poem in the same style as The Snake Song but about a different creature. The instructions for how to write this are below the blank page after the writing frame. If this is too difficult, you could try writing a word string as described in the 'fun things to do' section.
