A new concept in the 1930's was to build houses a few miles outside London this became known as Metroland.

Metroland 1930’s A new life.

Outside of London the semi-detached house market begins to boom,
And in these houses are little boys each have a little box room,
Metroland a new housing complex many have bought into this plan,
Some have just started school all is new everything spic and span
Asleep small hands outside covers dreaming of Wind in the Willows,
On the bed lays a book with a frog and a toad under nice pillows,
Neatly in a pile by the beside lay three brand new exercise books,
Titled their first day at school and proudly a silent father looks,
These are the first tiny scratchings the hard surface their youth,
It's touching important and somehow pathetic to you tell the truth,

I've just been given a Christmas card from one of my grandchildren with the funniest snowman ever, and the scratchy writing you mention. It is sooo cute.
