The Tale of Custard the Dragon.
By Ogden Nash
Belinda lived in a little white house, With a little black kitten and a little grey mouse, And a little yellow dog and a little red wagon, And a realio, trulio, little pet dragon.
Now the name of the little black kitten was Ink, And the little grey mouse, she called her Blink, And the little yellow dog was sharp as Mustard, But the dragon was a coward, and she called him Custard.
Custard the dragon had big sharp teeth, And spikes on top of him and scales underneath, Mouth like a fireplace, chimney for a nose, And realio, trulio, daggers on his toes.
Belinda was as brave as a barrel full of bears, And Ink and Blink chased lions down the stairs, Mustard was as brave as a tiger in a rage, But Custard cried for a nice safe cage.
This is only the start of the poem as the whole poem is very long. If you want to read the whole poem, have a look online.
Think of something that you and other people could do to make your community better.
It might be a litter-pick or a fund-raising event, or helping people who can’t go out much.
Choose one idea and present your idea in a way that could be displayed outdoors in your area.
You could make a poster or a leaflet or maybe you have a better idea.
Make your item and be sure to include details of the activity and how people can get involved.
This is only an imaginary activity for the Eisteddfod – don’t try to organise real events in your neighbourhood.
When you have finished you item, take a photo and upload it to the Community Champion folder for your year group. If you can’t access the Hwb folders, email your picture to your teacher.
