Year 6 Kestrel Class Poem

11 March 2021

To celebrate the end of lockdown and the return to school, the Kestrel class have clubbed their heads together and create a poem in the form of a rap(ish)!

Check out the video and our lyrics below!



It was the end of the holidays, the final days of yule

We were pumped to pack our bags and head back to school

Then Boris popped on TV: ‘You’re gonna stay home’

But here, have this: it’s a Google Chrome(book)


On the first day at home, we gathered up on Zoom

Then better than that: Google Classroom!

Miss Sokoni had her mic, Mrs Smith had her cam

Mr Cook dreamed of parallelograms


At first we couldn’t do it, we got stuck on the screen

Some even messed around on cam: “stop it Nasiim!”

But Carlo wrote his story, Hussein did his maths

And the teachers frozen camera faces gave us lots of laughs


While most of us worked at home, some worked in school

By the end of the eight weeks here, all were standing tall

Osman learned division, Phablo’s English grew

Zakeriye got to gold and Yonis wowed us too


We’re so glad to be back though, we all missed our friends

We’re determined to make this count, still four months till the end!

    We loved your poem so much Kestrel! After watching yours we fancy writing our own rap!

    Hi Kestrel, we liked how you turned the words into a rap and how you spoke with good rhythm.
