As Headteacher I am very fortunate to be able to visit our classrooms almost every day. Last week I read this fantastic piece of poetry, part of the poetry slam event. I was hoping you will enjoy it too, now open wide…

At the dentist

“Come sit in my chair,” the dentist said,

Then he shone a bright light on my head,

And he said, “Open wide.”

Then he peered inside,

What would he say next?-was my dread.


Extractions here are what we need,

“Oh no, oh no, please don’t” I plead.

I’m afraid so, Miss,

With all of that fizz,

From now on, on healthy food feed.
