Wearing odd socks for Anti-Bullying Week #AllDifferentAllEqual

Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality and uniqueness! Schools across the country are holding Odd Socks Days as part of Anti-Bullying Week (13th-17th November). I’m looking forward to going to one of my Patron of Reading schools, Summerville Primary School in Salford, tomorrow, where we will be reading and writing poems on an anti-bullying theme.

If you are looking for ideas on how to use poetry for anti-bullying lessons, I listed some resources in a previous post here.

While we are on socks, here’s one of my poems that is from Brilliant and will also be in my new children’s poetry book due to be published soon.

Orange Socks

Orange socks
Orange socks
I’ve seen a girl wearing orange socks

Not blue not black
Not violet not pink

Orange socks
They make me think

of red hot days
the sun up above
when you don’t need your scarf
you don’t need your gloves

Orange socks
Orange socks
Who’s that girl wearing orange socks?

Not brown not grey
Not yellow not green

But the orangiest orange
that I’ve ever seen

Orange socks
I like the style
Orange socks
They make me smile

Orange socks
Orange socks
Glad I saw that girl in those orange socks
