Summer 2 Week 1 – Poetry Week

Stars of the Week: Alphie and Margot

This week in Class 4, we have been looking at different styles of poetry for poetry week! We started with kennings poems, looked at their key features and then had a go at writing our own. Kennings are poems which are written like riddles with two-phrases on each line. Charles worked really hard to plan out his two-word phrases for each line of the kennings and follow the noun-verb format. We linked the kennings to our previous half-term topic which was Ancient Greece.

After writing our kennings, we looked at how we could plan and write our own haiku poems. Haiku poems follow a 5,7,5 syllable pattern through each line. Margot created a brilliant haiku poem about Ancient Greece and even added an extra two lines of 7 syllables to create a tanka poem.
