POEMES ET COMPTINES PAR THEMES (ANGLAIS)

1) THE WEATHER

Quatre exemples ( deux comptines et deux poèmes) illustrant le rôle dominant joué par la pluie dans les îles britanniques.

IT’S RAINING, IT’S POURING

It’s raining, it’s pouring,

The old man is snoring

He went to bed and bumped his head

And couldn’t get up in the morning.

( source : Super songs Oxford university press – cassette)

Rain, rain, go away !

Come again another day !

Rain, rain, go away !

Little Johnny wants to play.

( source : « Les comptines des petits cousins »-Didier jeunesse – cassette)

RAIN, RAIN

Rain, rain, go away

Come again another day.

Rain, rain, go away

Don’t come back till Christmas day.

Rain, rain, pour down,

But not a drop on our town.

Anon ( source : Poems for the very young – Kingfisher)

« SPLASH »

« Splash », said a raindrop

As it fell upon my hat;

« Splash » said another

As it trickled down my back.

You are very rude, I said

As I looked up to the sky;

Then another raindrop splashed

Right into my eye!

Anon ( source : Poems for the very young – Kingfisher)

Mais il ne pleut pas toujours

WEATHER RHYME

It’s snowing, it’s snowing

(Baisser doucement les mains en remuant les doigts)

Brr, brr,, brr

(Serrer ses bras autour de soi en frissonnant de façon exagérée)

It’s raining, it’s raining

(Baisser rapidement les mains en remuant les doigts)

Pit, pat, pit, pat

(tapoter ses doigts sur sa tête)

It’s sunny, it’s sunny

(Ecarter ses doigts et faire un grand cercle au dessus de sa tête)

Phew ! Phew !

(Faire semblant d’essuyer la sueur de son front)

It’s windy, it’s windy,

Whoosh! Whoosh!

( Gonfler ses joues et expulser l’air en sifflant)

V.Reilly and S.M Ward

2) ANIMALS

Il existe de très nombreuses chansons traditionnelles faisant référence aux animaux, par exemple « Old Mac Donald had a farm », « The animals went in two by two », « Baa baa black sheep », que l’on peut trouver sur la cassette « Jingle Bells ».

Voici deux poèmes que l’on peut mettre en relation avec les verbes d’action pour le premier, avec la localisation spatiale pour le second.

Le troisième est à mimer…

JUMP OR JIGGLE

Frogs jump

Caterpillars hump

Worms wiggle

Bugs jiggle

Rabbits hop

Horses clop

Snakes slide

Seagulls glide

Mice creep

Dear leap

Puppies bounce

Kittens pounce

Lions stalk –

But-

I walk !

Evelyn Beyer

CATS

Cats sleep

Anywhere,

Any table,

Any chair,

Top of the piano,

Window-ledge,

In the middle,

On the edge,

Open drawer,

Empty shoe,

Anybody’s

Lap will do,

Fitted in a

Cardboard box,

In the cupboard

With your frocks

Anywhere !

They don’t care!

Cats sleep

Anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon

THE ELEPHANT

The elephant goes

like this, like that

He’s terribly big

and he’s terribly fat.

He has no fingers,

he has no toes

but goodness gracious, what a nose !

3) NUMBERS

Des chansons ou comptines pour apprendre à compter.

( Il en exite bien d’autres : Ten Green Bottles…)

1,2 BUCKLE MY SHOE

One, two,

Buckle my shoe,

Three, four,

Open the door,

Five, six,

Pick up sticks,

Seven,eight,

Lay them staight,

Nine, ten,

A big fat hen.
