Passionate, Playful Poetry!
The Year 4’s spent the past few weeks learning about a wonderful new topic in English: Poetry.
They looked at some examples of poems, answered some poetry comprehensions and discussed different poetic features such as alliteration, similes, onomatopoeia, descriptive words and rhyme. Last week they got the chance to apply their knowledge by writing their own poems. They wrote some marvelous acrostic poems about fireworks and also wrote some extremely creative poems about their favourite colour.
Take a look at some of our amazing poems – we hope you enjoy reading the poems as much as we enjoyed writing it!
