Year 5 have been inspired by the poem Superheroes I Could Have Been by Roger Stevens to invent their own superheroes. These have included Cheese Woman (whose catchphrase is, ‘It’ll Brie alright!’), The Reverse Burglar (who sneaks into your house by night to clean it!), Gaming Girl (who holds the key to every door in every realm) and, perhaps the most useful superhero at the current time, Quarantina Girl, who sends everyone home and keeps us safe!
This is Amelie’s poem.
Superheroes I Could Have Been
After accidentally rescuing planet Earth
I was offered the chance
To become a superhero
Unfortunately all the best positions had gone.
This is what was left:
(Knows her weeds from her seeds.)
(Always there for some needy deeds.)
(He reads loads of books but can’t keep awake.)
Super Cake Woman
(Delivers cakes when you haven’t got time to bake.)
The Bird Man
(Whose favourite bird is a crow.)
(Who puts on a great show.)
Captain Tom (The oldest superhero of all.)
Mrs Chatter Box
(When you are lonely she gives you a nice friendly call.)
I could have been Cheese Woman
The greatest superhero of all time.
I could have been Captain Poetry
But I couldn’t think of a rhyme.
I could have been Dr Citrus
But I didn’t like squeezing lime.
I could have been Captain Adventurous
But I wouldn’t go down a mine.
