Year 6 - Creative Kennings

Year 6 - Creative Kennings

Year 6 have been very creative this week in literacy. They have taken on the task of writing a Kenning poem.                            

“A Kenning is a two word phrase describing an object often using a metaphor. A Kennings poem is a riddle made up of several lines of kennings to describe something or someone. A Kennings poem consists of several stanzas of two describing words. It can be made up of any number of Kennings.”

Year 6 have written some beautiful Kennings. Here are just three examples from Grace and Christian:
