Well done Erin!

Our winning poem was from Lillie M in Year 1 at Waterthorpe Nursery Infant School:


Pick up your dog’s pooh,

Or it will go on my shoe.

I will walk it through the door,

or the carpet,

or the floor.

Mum will get very mad,

For a new carpet we’ve just had!


2nd prize went to Sophie in Year 2 at Waterthorpe NI School:


When you take your dog for a pooh,

Always take a bag with you.

Put the bag on your hand,

Otherwise, in it you will land.

Never leave it on the floor,

Or I will walk it through the door.


3rd prize went to the School Council at Waterthorpe NI School:

When you put your dog on a lead,

Don’t forget there’s something else you need.

Before you leave your own front door,

Collect your poo bags; don’t leave it on the floor!

Bag it, tie it, look for a bin,

When you see one put it in.

Dog poo, dog poo, put it in the bin.

Dog poo, dog poo, keep it off my skin!
