We wrote some great Spring haiku poems with Mrs Young and painted blossoms on trees to make them look like Cherry Blossom trees.
We then had a go at writing haiku poems about summer. We had to remember the rule of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. Some of us even wrote haiku poems about Autumn and Winter, we loved trying this kind of poem.
Next, we played with writing acrostic poems. We wrote them about our names and about things we like. Then we had a go at writing acrostic poems about Summer. Here are some of our acrostic poems.
Lizzie and Taylor poems
The next kind of poem we learned about were diamante poems. There are two kinds. Synonym diamante poems, where the first noun is about the same thing as the last noun, and antonym diamante poems, where the first noun is opposite to the last noun.
We made lists of nouns, verbs and adjectives then followed the rules to complete the poems on the template.
This has been fun for reading and writing and has allowed us to express ourselves in different poem formats.
