Week 6

National Limerick Day!


Tuesday is National Limerick Day.


A limerick is a poem with five lines that is silly or funny or doesn't make sense.


Limericks were made famous by the poet and author Edward Lear, who wrote 'The Book of Nonsense' in the 1800s - nearly 200 years ago!


Here are some of his most famous: 

Limericks usually follow a pattern (clap the syllables to help):


Line 1)    There was a …… (8 or 9 syllables)

Line 2)    Who ……. (8 syllables)

Line 3)    When ......... (6 syllables)

Line 4)    ................. (5 syllables)

Line 5)    That ..... from ..... (8 syllables)




  • Have a go at writing your own limerick!
