In Class AS wehave been looking at poetry this week. We looked at personification, similes and rhyme, and tried to create our own poems about winter with these aspects. Here’s Will C’s and Lily’s
Winter gives the trees frost bite
It makes the hedgehogs curl up in their spikes
All the colour drains away
And the snowy winter is here to stay
All the trees very bare
Children dreaming without a care
As night passes by
All the foxes are sleeping, no lies
The animals hide from the snow
By sleeping underground head to toe
Above the ground there’s no clatter
Only robins starting to chatter
Snow falls down, very thick,
Covering the ground with a white blanket.
Trees huddled together
Protecting themselves from the freezing cold weather.
Snow flakes chase each other
Landing on a white snowy cover.
Children on sledges, calling as they go,
Running like the wind down a hill of snow.
Walk down the icy street, where no cars drove,
Leave the fire sizzling though.
Hearing a small robin sing,
But with no audience listening.
