In Year 4 this term we are focussing on different types of poetry in our English unit. The children are enjoying learning about different genres and poetic devices, and they are showing fantastic creativity in their writing. Here are some examples:
Title: The Pandemic
(A free verse poem by Nora)
The Pandemic is so horrible
It kills one thousand people a day
The streets are no longer filled with children’s laughter
As it is as silent as a graveyard
The Pandemic is so bad
But somehow life continues
Learning goes on and so is having some fun
Keep washing hands and stay safe
The Pandemic patients go through much pain
And that why I wish them quick recovery
The doctors are as busy as bees
Let us all appreciate their hard work.
Limerick by Cordell
Dogs are much better than cats,
They like to sleep on nice mats
My dog is called Chloe
Her friend is called Zoie
If pets eat too much they will get fat!
Cinquain poem by Julia
Sails on the sea
It has so many fish
She goes bravely through the waves
(A free verse poem by Karim)
Football, oh football!
It’s outstanding and it’s exciting.
I never lose fun,
I feel happy when I score goals.
I go for matches with my team –
green and yellow shorts and jerseys
Metal studs on my boots,
they stop me from slipping when rain.
The first match makes me nervous,
and excited at the same time.
The same as the second match!
At the third match
I feel confident.
My friends are on the team –
when they score, I feel jealous…
because I also feel like scoring!
Football is just my sport!
A Kennings poem by Ahmed
Can you guess what it is about?
A diamante poem by Gio
Sporty active entertaining

Robot (a free verse poem by Aarsan)
A black and white robot moving around
He hits everything in its way
Walking as programed on a device
Arasan2 is your name because you look like me
You have a round face
And a oval body
And metallic legs
You have a strong electric charge
When I use my voice command you go and tell people things
He is amazing and so nice
Cinquain poem by Idan
Play on the field
I run after the ball
I run to score
A Goal !
A diamante poem by Eva
Jumps, runs, saves the day
Bad guys and good, for kids
Pictures, words, rimes
Cinquain Poem by Phillipp
Sometimes ringing loud
Good for hearing music
I can chat with my friends
It get`s out of battery
I can make photos
A free verse poem by Yi Chen
The ocean full
of tropical fish,
The ocean surrounded
There is thousands of fish
Living inside the ocean,
But be careful of
Dolphins, sharks and whales
Are not fish but mammals living in the ocean,
There are mythical sea monsters like
The Kraken, hydra and cthulhu,
You better be careful in the sea
THEY MIGHT EXIST!
A cinquain poem by Aarush
Play with them in the pool
Such great summer fun for children
A Kennings poem by Leroy

Up go the fans hands,
football is here.
Manchester united verses Arsenal
It is a tight match and Arsenal have the ball.
Arsenal shoot aiming for the goal, screaming “Not another hit!”.
Unfortunately Manchester tackled the ball,
Now it’s Manchester’s ball.
As they sprint towards the goal like a cheetah chasing its prey,
Arsenal having turned into a raging bull took a wrong move and caused a foul.
It’s a penalty and all the fans are holding their breath.
Manchester take the shot past the goalkeeper and
It’s a goalllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a big applause and the players celebrate.
(A free verse poem by Lois)
every morning my clock goes
tik tok tik tok
it is sometimes annoying
and it also sometimes helps me to think
and I sometimes wonder
why do clocks go tik tok
and why not tok tik
I don’t really mind
I also wonder
why if a clock has three hands
it it only goes tik tok
and not for example
tik tok tak tik tok tak
A diamante poem by Lennon
Changing, moving, revolving
Satellites, asteroids, planets, stars
Orbiting, rotating, turning
A Free Verse Poem by Alia
In the morning I eat delicious cereal.
It has tiny marshmallows in it.
It is my favorite cereal.
Me and my brother eat it almost every morning.
My brother really likes it as well.
Sometimes we eat it in the middle of the day!
I prefer cold milk in my cereal .
My brother prefers very hot milk.
My dad likes hot milk like my brother.
My mom doesn’t really eat cereal.
