At Port Chalmers birds are hiding in the pages

I visited the Y3 and 4 class at Port Chalmers School and we did bird poems. So great to see the pens scratching and native birds flapping and fluttering on the page. I loved the way the children tested and played and explored poem paths.

Here are a few scrumptious bird poems that had got to this stage in our session.

 

Dark Night Hunter

The black night fights

with dark hunters

claws like knives

beaks like swords

harmless to us

shy and scared

digs down

underground

Evening light rises

tired hunter sleeps

Pukeko

Splashing rustling

making hand spans

along the swamp

 

claws digging into earth

making ground crumble

eyes staring ahead

 

blue feathers rustle

stalking now

 

staring eyes

eyeing reeds

Flappy Fantail

Deadly winds

blowing towards little fantail

trying to swoop down

fluffy feathers keeping warmth

stomach shouting for food,

I hope the gust escapes.

Colourful Parakeet

Gliding in the sky

soars around trees

green like lime

blue like blueberries

yellow like sunflowers

red like a fire

 

Feet like little twigs

swaying above the trees

flapping wings like crazy

claws dark and fierce

tail long and straight

fluffy as a bush

colourful and bright

Maya Y3

 

Cheeky Fantail

Cheeky little fantail flying

through the air with

its fluffy wings.

 

Today it’s soft

as silk

sharp brown, white and

black.

 

So cheeky little fantail

flies through the air

trying to find food

for the baby fantails,

and the fantail lands.
