Year 3 poetry corner
Miss Finch challenged the children in her class to write a poem about their weekends. Here are some of the results! Some lovely poetic techniques emerging…
My black, fat cat
Meows, meows, meows
And meows first
For a snack.
My black, fat cat
Loves, loves, loves
And loves to lie on the mat.
My black fat cat
Might bite, bite, bite
And bite you at night.
Only if you don’t give him a little snack.
By Smilte, Willow class
Mamma does the pancakes best
Berries and the whipping cream,
Daddy needs to have some rest,
Why does little Olivia scream?
Zoe wants to have a bite –
Should I give her, is it right?
By Zara, Willow class
I am happy, bouncy and dancy,
What a lovely thing to be!
My sister is mischievous and giggly,
What a delightful thing to be!
My mum is kind and loveable,
What an awesome thing to be!
My dad is funny and we have fun times together,
What an adventurous feeling to have!
My family is funny,
My family is cool,
What an amazing thing to be part of.
By Chloe, Willow class
The car which went fast.
The car which went slow.
Which one do I like the best?
The car that went fast like lightning,
The car which went slow like a snail
But which one do I like more?
The car that went fast like the wind
The car which went slow like the clouds
I know, I like BOTH!
By Marianna, Willow class
