Friends at School

This is a friends at school poem

Let's read another poem on friends in English. 

I can talk with a friend

and walk with a friend

and share my umbrella

in the rain.

I can play with a friend

and stay with a friend

and learn with a friend

and explain.

I can eat with a friend

and compete with a friend

and even sometimes


I can ride with a friend

and take pride with a friend.

A friend can mean

so much to me!

The poem 'with a friend is written by Vivian Gould. 

I have to be at this place called the school,

5 days a week, yes! It’s really cruel.

I’ve got to learn new things, like –



Remembering letters,

And sometimes we have to watch this huge projector.

It’s kind of tough when I’m wearing my homemade – knitted sweater.

Sometimes, we have to sit on the carpet

And listen to a story by our teacher called Mrs Parson.

I know all the children’s names, please! Don’t get me started.

Joshua is the special one, he wears trousers on his head because he wants to be Super Ted.

Emily is always in the Wendy house, she likes to pick her nose and rub it – on her pink and white blouse.

Oliver likes to make a lot of noise – he’s always shouting at the top of his voice.

Lewis has some serious problems, he likes to fart and tell everyone it’s awesome.

Brontë is bossy, yet delightful, and always wants to play the games which are really frightful.

Sarah has to have time out, I think she’s actually learning to meditate – and her mum’s face looks like a trout.

Ben tends to do it wrong and cries in the morning after his mummy sings him a song.

Peaches is the drama queen, I think her dad is famous, or so that it seems.

David can never, ever be wrong, even if the facts are banged off a gong.

Steven is a perfectionist and can never finish his work, he thinks he’s flying a spaceship and calls himself Captain Kirk.

Fran is really clever and wears the biggest pair of specs. She’s always got her hand up and is definitely the teacher’s pet.

Last but least –

It’s me! William,

I can’t wait to get home.

I like to put my cosy slippers on

And then I play candy crush on my dad’s phone.
