A fun poem counting all the different objects and activities you might find on a holiday. Check out our Fun Stuff page for great activities to go with this poem.





One warm sea
Where I can splash.

Two huge rocks
Where waves can crash.

Three sand castles
I have made.

Four blue buckets
Near my spade.

Five pretty pebbles
I have found.

Six shiny shells
Lying around.

Seven happy children
Playing with a ball.

Eight big sea-gulls
Screech and call.

Nine little sailing boats
Bobbing in the bay

Ten loud cheers
For our holiday!

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Hold up the correct number of fingers for each verse. Count off the number of "Hurrays" by touching each finger one by one. Draw simple pictures of each verse onto separate A4 size white cards. Number and name each one using the numeral rather than the word. For the "cheers" verse write the word "Hurray" inside each of 10 speech bubbles.
