What a wonderful time I had with the Y3 and 4 students. Here are a few examples of the writing we did. Thank you. I really loved our sessions together. You were so focused!
The hot summer sun
my puppy howling with fur
shimmering in the sun.
My cat snoring all day long.
I feel at home.
The Other Side of the Cliff
Water hits my shoes
The breeze rushes by my face
I see my house up on the cliff
Big logs are on the ledge
Tumbled bits of dirt and stone
Small pink stones in the tide pools
Moss on the smooth wet rocks
It looks very old to me.
I see birds squawking and flapping
Or perched on mossy stones
Further in the ocean,
I see stranded rocks
A few meters away from me.
The cliff is very interesting.
My bird is a bird of lava and fire
its body is a bright rainbow colour
its beak glows and is bright orange
its tail is very very white.
My bird grows claws that are dark grey.
It looks as beautiful as a peacock and as
dangerous as a rattle snake.
its petrifying call goes ‘crackle
Gliding high up in the burning red
no-one can find my bird except me.
This bird is magic and I
love it forever.
MY AJF Ocean Bird
My bird has a beak
curved like a snail’s shell.
Pop! Crack! goes my bird
like a crumbling building.
His big black wings
circle the ocean.
Red! Pink! Purple!
flash like fireworks,
very few live in trees
as they swish around.
These birds are not flightless
as they love to adventure.
The two breeds are the AJF,
one has a sweet fragrance
of flowers and honey,
the other is the fish
It’s like a bird cross cat but has a quarter
pound of dog, a pinch of horse and
rainbow. It’s black with shining blue.
If you take a photo, it chases after
you. It has a horse’s tail. It vomits
rainbows and sits on them. A nose
like a dog. It acts like a showoff
by flapping, floating, soaring
striking and lives on candyfloss
clouds and you might not believe
it but it’s very true. When it’s up in
clouds, it watches over you!
