KEY STAGE 1

HALFWAY DOWN

(by AA Milne)

Halfway down the stairs

is a stair

where I sit.

There isn’t any

other stair

quite like it.

I’m not at the bottom,

I’m not at the top;

so this is the stair

where

I always

Stop

KEY STAGE 2

THE LAUGHTER FORECAST

(by Sue Cowling)

Today will be humorous

With some giggly patches,

Scattered outbreaks of chuckling in the south

And smiles spreading from the east later,

Widespread chortling

Increasing to gale-force guffaws towards evening.

The outlook for tomorrow

Is hysterical.
