Here are the last EYE poems (Post 3)

Students at Russley School used their EYES and went on a hunt around the school for inspiration for their poems.

First I will post these two poems and then some photos so you can see what sparked the students’ imagination.

Jacko has chosen a terrific simile for his poem about a flower — and then hunted for words that make that flower an eye-catching image in your mind as you read. Great job Jacko! I am sending you a copy of my poetry book, Macaroni Moon. I hope you have FUN reading it. Let me know your favourite poem.

The second poem is a team effort which is a great idea!  Emily and Jayda also used their EYES to hunt for fascinating things and simmering similes.

These young poets have shown us poems are everywhere — right in front of your eyes! In your back garden and your school playground.

Feel free to send me your poem! I might post a few more throughout the year.
