Year 5 - Poets
During the past two weeks in English, Year 5 have been looking at poetry by Pie Corbett. The class were set the task of writing a poem in the style of Pie and what a fantastic job they did!
Here is part of Owen Lawrence's work:
a tree elegantly dancing with the wind,
if you peer through the gaps in the leaves you might be able to catch a glimpse of the 100 year old squirrel dancing in the trees,
a tree swaying side to side like it is cheering someone on in a race.
collecting up a cloud
and drinking it like some fizzy pop,
wrapping up the moon and eating it for lunch,
riding a meteor drifting into outer space.
Here is part of Brodie Storer's work:
a gleam of the sun tightly trapped in a box,
a rainbow's colour being sucked away,
an angry ant growing as big as a tree,
a daisy being used as an umbrella as you see.
a tree slowly dancing in the wind and doing ballet,
the ocean pretending to call his friends to play,
a bouncy castle shouting "please don't bounce on me"
and a penguin being told he can fly.
Year 5 definitely have some poets in the making!'
