Riddle Poems

Last week in teams we were looking at the poem Bluebottle by Judith Nicholls. We ended up by writing our own.

Who dives and thrives,
Who is always is wanting to chill,
When scared, there invisible because they stop and stay still,
They can go slow or full speed ahead,
Some people like to keep them as pets next to the bed,
People like to eat them, have them dead on a dish,
But they are just so beautiful, water dwelling fish,
Heather

Who races and chases, 🏁
Dashes through the water, 💦
A shine in his teeth, 🦷
And detail on his gills,🐟
Now swims in the ocean,🌊
Now gone with a trace, 🛣
A large fish, 🐟
Who moves like the light,💡
Bound for the sea bed, 🛏
Who’s lightning, wind, 🌩
Always chomping fish,🐟
Ocean chopper, fishes terror.
Shark
Aaron

Who licks and lies,
Who leaps and fetch,
A deep growl,
Now barks in the bright,
Who eats grass,
But will never fight,
A dog
Jonah

Who dives and dives,
splashes and crashes,
chomps and bites,
attaches and devours,
up and down,
round and round,
thrives and dives,
like a pouncing lion under water,
fish are a dish for the Megalodon.
Josh

Who goes round and round,
up and down,
jumps, pounces?
Jaguars jumping about,
don’t go near of he might pounce
up and down,
round and round,
even if they do that they leave no trail.

Descriptive Poetry

Last week in our Teams meeting the Biggies looked  at and thought about  the poem Long Trip by Langston Hughes. The children used it as a template to write their own poems.

The Burn
The Burn Is A Woosh Of Water.
A Sound Of Relaxation.
It Runs And Ripples,
Glows And Glimmers,
Down The Rocks.
Raging, Roughly,
Roughly, Raging.
The Burn Is A Woosh Of Water.
A Sound Of Relaxation.

The Sea
The sea is a witches cauldron covered in shadows from the dark.
The sea is a water town for fish and great white sharks.
Where they can splish and splash,
Dip and dive,
Swim through the wild waters.
Dash, splash,
Splash, dash.
The sea is a water town for fish and great white sharks.
The sea is a witches cauldron covered in shadows from the dark.

Heather


The Rainbow
The colours are a line of brightness.
A feet in the sky,
It moves and moves,
Sunny and rainy,
Down the path,
Running, walking,
Running jogging,
We got the gold,
A feet in the sky.

Skye


The mountains is like a full grown apple,
An apple of mountains.
You climb and walk,
walk and climb.
Hear the wind on rushing low.
The mountains is a full grown apple.

Tanya


The Garden
The garden is a forest of green,
An area of fun.
It’s sits and stays,
Grows and glows,
In the sun.
Watching, waiting,
Waiting, watching.
The garden is a forest of green,
An area of fun.
Hannah


The pony
The pony is a pearl,
It shines and shivers,
Golden and glittery,
And stands out!
In the field.
All chuffed,
Chuffed all.
The pony is proud,
A ball of greatness.

Jonah


The unstoppable sword
Thunder is the sword of god,
A sword is the teeth of a shark.
It slices and dices,
It raises up and down,
All the way.
Cutting and slices,
Slices and cutting,
All in slices going 1 and 2.

Josh


Volcanos are madness
Volcanos are a fiery mountain and that is a theatre that lit up the sky
Mountains are a magical mythical
That is too high to climb
Fire. Crackle crunch fire flame
That is way to hot to touch
Volcanos are a fiery mountain and that is a theatre that lit up the sky

Hazel


Tree
The Tree is big and strong,
A palace of leaves that curl and bend.
That is still in time.
Every day we pass them by,
But we never hear them cry a song of sorrow.
The Tree is big and strong,
A palace of leaves that curl and bend.

Our Magic Box

Last Week we worked on the poem The Magic Box by Kit Wright in our Teams meetings, we came up with our own version, I think it is as good as the original.

The Magic Box

I Will Put In The Box,
The First Great White Shark,
A Great Green Tree,
The Last Light Seen On Earth.

I Will Put In The Box,
The first life of a man
The joy of god
The light of god

I will put in the box:
A dog with a head for a tail,
a cat who had a hat,
and stegosaurus with no toe,

I will put in the box:
The first laugh of a baby,
The last ray of sunshine,
The wind blowing in the trees.

I will put in the box:
The sight of the Queen
A duck flying free
To see the first petals on the trees

I will put on the box…
A new clear crystal,
My dogs first loud howl,
My baby brother’s first word.

I will put in my box
A flame from a dying sun,
A fallen star dropped by the night sky,
Life from another planet.

I will put in my box…
The colour of the sky,
The stars in the night,
The work that warmth of the sun.

I will put in the box:
My puppies first bark,
A memory of a sunny day in the park,
The smell of a flower,
And a sweet that is sour.

Our box is made of unicorn fluff, wood and Redstone,
It has tractors and dens on the top.
The body is made of barriers,
Invisible if it is not in your hand,
I shall ride my unicorn box into tomorrow,
The end of lockdown and McDonalds.

Verses by Aaron, Josh, Ben , Hannah, Alice, Skye, Heather, Jessica, Caelan. The whole class worked on the last two verses.
