Do you know what a shed is? A cow shed, a tool shed, a wood shed, for example. It’s a small room, away from the main house, for storing or keeping things, animals, tools, vehicles, etc. Ask your partner if she/he has ever seen a shed. Let her/ him describe it to the class. 

Now read the poem……… 

There’s a shed at the bottom of our garden 

With a spider’s web hanging across the door, 

The hinges are rusty and creak in the wind. 

When I’m in bed I lie and I listen, 

I’ll open that door one day. 

There’s a dusty old window around at the side 

With three cracked panes of glass, 

I often think there’s someone staring at me 

Each time that I pass, 

I’ll peep through that window one day. 

My brother says there’s a ghost in the shed 

Who hides under the rotten floorboards, 

And if I ever dare to set foot inside 

He’ll jump out and chop off my head, 

But I’ll take a peek one day. 

I know that there isn’t really a ghost, 

My brother tells lies to keep the shed for his den; 

There isn’t anyone staring or making strange noises 

And the spider has been gone from his web 

since I don’t know when, 

I’ll go into that shed one day soon, But not just yet......
