An end-of-year challenge for you: poems that SOUND good!

At the start if the year we explored how poems can SOUND good.

I thought it would be good as one of the last challenges of the year to get you to write a poem that sounds good when you read it out loud.

It can be about ANYTHING.   It doesn’t need to rhyme.

But you can play with:

how many words you put on a line

the last word on the line

madeup words


words that almost rhyme   (crocodile and smiling child,  crocoddile and broccoli)

hiding rhyme

hiding alliteration


pop out words  (words that sound good)

popping neighbours (words that sound good next to each other)

Have fun

DEADLINE for your Sounds good-Poem Challenge: Wednesday November 26th (will post on 27th)

Send to Include your name, year, age and name of school. You can include your teacher’s name and email. PLEASE say it’s for the Sounds good-Poem challenge.

I will post my favourites and have a book prize for a poet (Year 0 to Year 8).  Something special: I will also have a CD of Ted Hughes reading his poems for children for one lucky poet thanks to the Lovewell Family.
