Our poetry

What? Two posts in ONE day? Well, it IS National Poetry Day after all so we need to celebrate it!

Today, our year 6 children had a go at a difficult task. I printed off random images from the internet, popped them into a bag, and asked them to choose one. The selected picture would be their visual prompt for a poem they had to write in ten minutes.

You should have heard the groans of despair. The ‘I can’t do this, Miss!’ and the ‘Do I have to?s’. But THEY DID! And these are some of the results. I am dead impressed and hope you are too.

The Shining Ball, by Alfie

The sun

Glistening

Off the delicate

Glass ball

The feathers

Are burning

Yellows

The wet

Grass

Shining  from

The Sun

 

Charlie Cooper, by Duke

National Galleries of Scotland

Charlie Cooper

Was a skater

But he had to go to tea a bit later.

He was off in a hurry

To get some coffee

Before he was off to the ice rink.

Like an elegant swan he skated

Stopping for a break, he gloated

About how great he was.

 

Pufferfish, by Luke

Pufferfish

Human in the

Ocean

Top of the food chain, they eat

Octopuses, they

Smell like

Overweight

Poo.

Flying

All over the

Internet’s

Locker.
