At Abernethy primary school, every Thursday, Mrs. Reid hosts the creative writing group. At creative writing, we write poems, stories, riddles and lots, lots more. So far we have been looking at different types of poetry including Haiku and Acrostic poems, poems about dragons, spring- time poems and short stories.

Here is an Acrostic dragon poem that we wrote:





On they go


Here is a list poem called ‘The Zoo’:

Because we were bored and had nothing to do

My mum took my brother and I to the zoo

And although we weren’t keen and we moaned and we whined

The trip was fantastic, we had a great time.

We saw six  sequinned ostriches dancing on ice

And skateboarding elephants juggling with mice

And meerkats jumping on sea-lions heads

And monkeys on marvellous multi-coloured beds

And king penguins combing their long golden hair

And lions in pink frilly underwear

And chimpanzees sliding fast down giraffe’s necks

And bears holding sacks full of bats on their backs

And vampire bats boxing with baby baboons

And snakes making animal shapes with balloons.

At the end of the day we all had to agree

That the weird-wildlife zoo was a great place to be.
