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

The boat

Sails on the sea

It has so many fish

She goes bravely through the waves

The end

 

 

Football

(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

for Ambrosoli.

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!

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 free verse poem by Yi Chen

The Ocean

The ocean full

of tropical fish,

The ocean surrounded

by sand.

 

There is thousands of fish

Living inside the ocean,

But be careful of 

SHARKS!

 

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!

Football

(A free verse poem by Leo)

 

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.

 

The clock

(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

Moon

Small, opaque

Changing, moving, revolving

Satellites, asteroids, planets, stars

Orbiting, rotating, turning

Bright, spherical

Sun

 

Cereal

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.
