On the Ning Nang Nong

Today I have been searching through my old teaching files and found these poems written by children in Year 2.  They will be in Year 6 now!  The poems are based, quite obviously, on Spike Milligan’s On the Ning Nang Nong.  I remember this being a wonderful, fun lesson and if I can find the planning that went with it then I will post that too.  In the meantime please enjoy the poems.

On the Zig Zag Zog by Daniel and Luke

On the zig zag zog

Where the owls go wog!

And the dolphins all say shoo!

There’s a zag zog zig

Where the rats go big!

And gorillas liver laver loo!

On the zog zig zag

All the mice go clag!

And you just can’t catch ‘em when they do.

So it’s zig zag zog

Owls go wog!

Zag zog zig

Rats go big!

Zog zig zag

Mice go clag!

What a noisy place to have a sob!

Is the zig zag zig zag zog!

On the Bip Bap Bop by Darby and Francesca

On the bip bap bop

Where the chicks go clop!

And the piglets all go wooo!

There’s a bip bap bop

Where the rabbits go plop!

And the dogs go rapper rapper roop!

On the bip bap bop

All the horses say hop

And you just can’t catch ‘em when they do!
