Friday the 13th

Last week it was Friday the 13th! It is a bad luck for people who don't know. So think about before you do it. Every foot step every wink. And if you see any black cats run away don't forget open your crisps the right way up. And on your way home from school mind the footpath and the steps you might just fall !

Halloween is here ,
Come on lets cheer,
w'ell go trick or treating,
oh w'ell do some eating
dressing up in mum's old clothes
from head our to our toe's
w'ell go scaring,
while we are wearing,
all are scary clothes
w'ell wear a mask and a hat and some false teeth,
and then we greet our neighbours while they
quiver with fear
hip hip hoer Halloween is here,
and w'ell go home with a bag full of treats
after along night of trick or treats.
