I endorse Ivy B about her Y6 lyricist. The rhyming couplets and the way the scanning breaks down matches the work of our Y6 children. I have also found some quite sophisticated puns from Y4 (8-9 yr-olds), very often when they apply a common phrase in an unusual but appropriate place. If they come from a family where the adults use words creatively, they may well be capable of doing so themselves.
