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.
