Farmer Duck

Farmer Duck!

For the talk for writing actions to the Farmer Duck story please have a look at our video on tapestry.

 

Once upon a time there was a duck who lived with a lazy old farmer.

The duck did the work, the lazy old farmer stayed in bed all day.

 

The duck fetched the cow from the field,

The lazy old farmer said “How goes the work?” and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

 

The duck fetched the sheep from the hill,

The lazy old farmer said “How goes the work?” and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

 

The duck put the hens in their house,

The lazy old farmer said “How goes the work?” and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

 

The lazy old farmer got bigger and bigger and bigger through staying in bed all day.

The duck was sad with working all day.

 

“How goes the work?” said the lazy old farmer and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

“How goes the work?” said the lazy old farmer and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

“How goes the work?” said the lazy old farmer and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

“How goes the work?” said the lazy old farmer and the duck said “Qu- Qu- quack!”

The sad duck was sleepy, weepy and tired.

 

The cow, sheep and hens were very sad because they loved the duck.

They held a meeting under the moon and had an idea for the morning.

MOO! Said the cow

BAA! Said the sheep.

CLUCK! Said the hens

And that was the idea.

 

The next day, just before dawn, the farmyard was as quiet as a mouse.

The cow and the sheep and the hens tiptoed through the backdoor,

up the stairs and under the bed of the lazy old farmer.

The bed started to rock, it got faster and faster and faster until the lazy old farmer…. WOKE UP!

“How goes the work?” and…..

 

MOOOOOOOO!

BAAAAAAAAA!

CLUCCCCCKKK!

 

They lifted his bed and he started to shout, they banged and they bounced the lazy old farmer about and about and about right out of his bed.

 

He fled with the cow and sheep and hens mooing, baaing and clucking after him!

Down the lane “Moo!”

Through the fields “Baa!”

Over the hill “Cluck!”

And he never came back again!

 

All the animals set off to work on the farm and lived happily ever after.

The End.
