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:
A beautiful sparkling spectrum glowing in the night sky.
Ear deafner. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Ground vibrator. A face warmer.
A flame shooter.
A colour exploder.
A sparkling illuminator. Grace Todd
A sky glider.
A morning sleeper.
A human hater.
A night lover.
A dark disguiser.
A shadow flyer. Christian Lescombe
Wall hider. Christian Lescombe
