Josephine at the swimming pool

I like swimming pool.

It’s better than the bath.

We can make waves.

No, it’s not possible! Josephiiiiiinnnne, you flooded water everywhere !


It’s impossible to moove in this bath!

In the swimming pool, I can play with my things! My rubber ring, my two piece swimsuit, my armbands, my swimming glasses.


Great, bathing caps !

We all have strange heads.

Eurg ! Lices ! Beurk ! Luky, I have bathing cap! Lucky

We are all the same.


Nobody notices that I am bald.

Nobody laughs at me because of my tan marks.

Nobody sees my hairy legs.

Nobody sees that I am wellrounded.


It takes me everywhere. Except in water‌

We are all the same and all different, above all me and my wheelchair.

This poem of Sándor Weöres is very special because of the metrum. You can read it in two metrums: metrical verse and rate emphatic verse (the metrical verse is found only in three languages: italian, greek and hungarian). Regretfully the translation doesn’t illustrate the metrical verse but if you try to read the original you can try to play with the metrum. The theme is very simple, actually it is a play with the verse. It is very typical in his poems. Many people thinks that he wrote child poems but it is not true because you can perform the theme in two ways: one for the children and one for the others. After all the structure makes you wonder.

Elly, Michael and Peggy overcame great dangers to survive in famine-torn Ireland. Now the country is again in turmoil, with evictions, burnings and secret meetings. Michael’s job in the Big House is under threat and Elly worries for her family as the fight for land continues. What will the future hold for her daughter, Mary-Bridgid? In America, Peggy risks everything in hope of a better life. Will the Children of the Famine ever find a home they can call their own? From the book blurb


The great famine of Ireland claimed millions of lives. Entire families were wiped out. This is a story about one family and how they survived. We read about how each child grew up to be an adult and how they made their way in the world. We learn about Peggy and how she immigrated to America. She had to work very hard as a chamber maid in a big house, yet she still managed to stay cheerful. We find out about Eily and how she lived with the fear of the landlord putting up the rent or evicting them. Last but certainly not least we find out about how Michael worked in The Big House and survived the fire. These three characters show us how people can survive tragedy and go on to live full lives.


Peggy woke up. She wondered where she was and why her bed was so hard. Then she remembered. She was in the wagon with John, James and Sarah and they were heading for the Wild West. “The others must have been up long ago” thought Peggy. “I think I’ll just stay in bed for another”... and before she could finish her sentence she fell asleep again. It was two o’clock before Peggy got up again. When she went to the front of the wagon there was no one there. She saw a note stuck to the fridge. It said: Back in Ireland Eily, John, Mary Brigid, Nano, Michael and Jodie were busy rebuilding the dd,, house. They had been working on it for three a e a h e y h p y e p e e l d e s l n llkk aand a H weeks but they were still only half way w Heelllloo s a w a a r o r f o f e onne through.

It was seven am when oouurr.. h h uupp.. n a n a n i n Mary Brigid woke up.

She was looking forward to another day s e s e m a m JJa with her family. It was ten am before they started on the bedroom. At half past twelve they stopped for a break. They had biscuits and orange juice. They had a long day ahead of them.

The The Fisherman Fisherman from from Cefalù Cefalù

Adapted Adapted from from Favole Favole al al Telefono Telefono by Gianni Rodari by Gianni Rodari

by Gianni Rodari

- Andiamo a pescare? - disse la mattina dopo il bambino di mare con la sua vocetta sottile sottile. Andarono, e il bambino di mare disse: - Rema diritto fin che te lo dico io. Ecco, siamo arrivati. Butta la rete qua sotto. Il pescatore ubbidì, e quando ritirò la rete la vide piena come non l'aveva mai vista, ed era tutto pesce di prima qualità. Il bambino di mare battè le mani: - Te l'avevo detto, io so dove stanno i pesci. In breve tempo il pescatore arricchì, comprò una seconda barca, poi una terza, poi tante, e tutte andavano in mare a buttare le reti per lui, e le reti si riempivano di pesce fino, e il pescatore guadagnava tanti soldi che dovette far studiare da ragioniere uno dei suoi figli per contarli. Diventando ricco, però, il pescatore dimenticò quel che aveva sofferto quando era povero. Trattava male i suoi marinai, li pagava poco, e se protestavano li licenziava. - Come faremo a sfamare i nostri bambini? essi si lamentavano. - Dategli dei sassi, - egli rispondeva, - vedrete che li digeriranno. Il bambino di mare, che vedeva tutto e sentiva tutto, una sera gli disse: - Bada che quel che è stato fatto si può disfare. Ma il pescatore rise e non gli diede retta. Anzi, prese il bambino di mare, lo rinchiuse in una grossa conchiglia e lo gettò in acqua. E chissà quanto tempo dovrà passare prima che il bambino di mare possa liberarsi. Voi cosa fareste al suo posto?

Gianni Rodari (1920-1980) is one of the most celebrated Italian writers, known worldwide for his works for children. A former teacher, he was a journalist, and he had the merit of bring the children’s literature a new spirit. In 1970 he won the Premio Andersen, an international award for children’s writers. Here you can watch a video with Rodari reading and talking about children. This story, from «Le Favole al Telefono» (“Fairy Tales Over the Phone”, 1962), is set in Cefalù and show us how wealth often makes you forget thankfulness. Our ending is a rewarding for all those people who worked for the fisherman and were mistreated by him… and for fishes too!

BALD BOY AND OLD MILLER Keloğlan and his poor mother were struggling life with bad straits. They were eating a loaf of bread and a piece of cheese for days. According to their neighbours their land so poor it wouldn't even raise a fuss. Winter time was coming so his mother talked to him at length. “Ah my son, pure son and the bald head son. This year winter came quickly so we have to make provision without loss of time. Go and find a work said his mother.” He thought about that where and how? Finally, he decided to go out and look for a job. Firstly, he looked at the shops but he couldn’t find a work. Then he decided to go windmill. He saw an old man there and he was upset because old man had lots of Works to do. “I could work here without receiving any money” said Keloğlan . Then he came back to home and tells her mother everything. Her mother was angry and she shouted at him and she started crying. Keloğlan went to windmill everyday without receiving any Money. One day winter came; he and her mother were hungry. Keloğlan found a packet front of the door. He opened it and there were plenty of food, drinks and money in it. This packet was coming from miller and he is rewarded for his goodness. This text is translated by Metin SAVURAL


.


Keloğlan is the most famous and the favourite person of the Turkish children’s tale. It has great significance among the Anatolian tales. Keloğlan is a hero who lives with his poor mother and who works in order to earn his living, he is careless and chaste but a ready reply boy. Also he is a hero who finds practical solutions to the problems and who achieves his goal in the end. By playing word games, he achieves his goal sometimes thanks to his cunningness, sometimes thanks to his chastity. Keloğlan is a clever public hero who has big dreams. Sometimes he is coward but at the same time he is brave enough to have a wish of marrying the sultan’s daughter. Keloğlan is hardworking, determined, decisive, active, strong, sworn enemy of injustice and the powerful defender of nature. He can have an optimistic point of view even in the hardest situations. He can smile, he never stops laughing and singing. By his intelligence,his working and efforts, he manages to get rid of the adventure where the tale takes him to. He never forgets about his mother, always helps his friends. He treats the monsters he struggles very well after he defeats them. Keloğlan’s goal is not only to reach the children who know him, but also to reach the whole world’s children and to be a universal hero. You can find 2 tales of keloglan in this link : http://ingilizce.masaldiyari.net/tag/keloglan-masallari-ingilizce or You can find games,videos etc.. in this link: http://www.keloglanmasallari.com/

It all started in Athens, And was set in the woods, When Hermia loved Lysander, And here it was about to get good. Helena loved Demitrius, But Demitrius did not love her, Demitrius loved Hermia, And this caused a bit of a stir. Egeus lived in a castle, And Lysander he thought was a bore, He ordered Hermia to marry Demitrius, But they would have to run away and be poor. Helena told Demitrius , Thinking she would win back his love, But instead he went after her, And the fairies were fluttering above.

The magic herbs juice, Went into Lysander’s eyes, And when he awoke he loved Helena, She did not think it was wise. Meanwhile a play was going on, When Bottom wanted to be every part, Bottom got turned into a Ass, And won Titania’s heart. Bottom got turned into a human, Just in time for the play, When morning awoke in the woods, Egeus did not know what to say.

by Bethan Williams, Year 6, Age 10


Midsummer Nights Dream Act 1 Scene 1 From A Midsummer Night’s Dream film production

Translated into modern English by Harvey Coster and Vinnie Adams, Year 5, Aged 10

“I come full of anger, against my daughter, Hermia“.

“Stand forward Demetrius!”


“Sir this man has my permission to marry my daughter”.

“Stand forward Lysander!”

“Sir this man has cast a spell on my daughter’s heart. You, you Lysander, you have given her poems and exchanged them for love-tokens. He sang songs to her at her window with dying verses and stolen the impression of her fantasy, with bracelets, rings, nick knacks and chocolate”.


“Because she is young, you have stolen her heart”.

“As she is mine, I can do whatever I want with her. She shall marry this man or go to her death!”.
