Eloise on the Microphone

The other day Eloise's class was up on stage during Assembly (or Parade as they call it) to do a presentation on poetry. They know the ins and outs of Rhyming Couplets, they say, but mention Iambic Pentameter and their eyes would glaze over.

I have reduced the ten minute presentation to a culturally significant rendition of Five Little Owls, that well-known poetic epic, plus Eloise's turn on the mike, for your viewing pleasure.

They went on to recite Five Little Ducks Went Out One Day and Did Martial Arts, but it suffered from a timing breakdown and was incomprehensible. Maybe I'll post that later.

They were all terribly nervous beforehand - they were performing in front of hundreds of kids. But they did very well.
