P4W have been working really hard this week, creating their own Autumn poems using our senses.
On Tuesday, we went for a walk around the school playground and worked with a small group to collect words that described things that we could see, hear, smell and touch. We also collected some items including different coloured leaves and pine cones which we decided could contribute to our display.
On Wednesday, we shared the words that we collected and discussed different Autumn poems that Miss Wozniak found. We also looked at the features of poetry and found that not all poems have to rhyme.
Here are some of our fantastic creations:
Leaves, leaves in the breeze,
They woosh and wiggle in the trees.
When Autumn blows, they move around,
Until they hear a crunching sound.
Woosh, all the leaves are gone,
Until next Autumn,
It feels so long.
By Sarah M
Leaves in the trees,
Falling by the breeze.
The leaves dance in the breeze,
As they fall to the ground.
It smells like chocolate and Halloween treats.
It feels like peaceful raindrops and Bonfire Night.
By Liam N
Autumn, Autumn, I smell you,
You smell like little leaves.
Autumn, Autumn, I hear you,
You sound like leaves swaying in the breeze.
Autumn, Autumn, I see you,
You look like leaves on the ground.
Autumn, Autumn, I taste you,
You taste like Belgian Buns.
Autumn, Autumn, I feel you,
You feel like crunching leaves.
By Niamh C
As an extra challenge, we also created some fantastic acrostic poems too:
All the leaves
Turn red and orange
Unusual black dots
Moving in the sky
Nature is the best
By Millie W
Autumn is cold
Usually red and orange
Tweet, tweet, the birds are disappearing
Usually rustling in the wind
Magically changing colour
No birds to be seen
By Jack S
Always the red and brown leaves
Unusually, some pink and purple fall
Tinkling in the grass
Upside down and the right way around
Mystically up and down
Nothing can stop them dancing
By Michael R
