Hinky Pinkies!

Recently 4th, 5th and 6th class have been learning about Hinky Pinkies in English. A hinky pinky is a clue and the answer to this clue will rhyme, e.g. A bitter bloom = sour flower. We have been solving a few riddles at the beginning of English lessons for the past few weeks and on Monday made up some of our own. Here are a few of the hinky pinkies we made, see how many you can solve! (You can leave suggestions in the comments section if you like)

    Is it fake drake for not real duck?

    I’ve thought of a few hinky pinkies: bad rubbish, bashful boy, a small creature’s track and very warm hit! Let me know how you get on!

    Ms Wilson we think we know your Hinky Pinkies!! Is bashful boy shy guy? from Timmy and Abbey. Is very warm hit hot shot? from Rebecca. Is a small creatures track toad road? from Aaron. We’re not sure is bad rubbish either bold mould or bitter litter? from Abbey and Timmy.

    Can you get this one?! A strong swan.

      Timmy & Abbey & Rebecca are right. Aaron is close but maybe think of a more common garden creature! Your guesses for bad rubbish
      are really good but not what I had thought up originally so keep thinking and get back to me with your answers! Is a strong swan a sturdy birdy?

    Oh, you guys are good. Maybe I’m reading this too late at night but my brain is blank! Sounds like you all had good fun exercising those little grey cells 🙂
