Year 4 Poetry

25 November 2021Year 4

Year 4 have been studying different forms of poetry inspired by Roger McGough’s collection Poetry Pie.
They adapted McGough’s poem Jellyfish Pie to create their own rhyming version as well as exploring Clerihews and Kennings.
Clerihews are about a person and have an AABB rhyming pattern. Kennings are like riddles and are believed to originate from the Anglo Saxon and Norse traditions of describing people and places using compound phrases. Can you work out what is being described in our example?
Here are some examples of their original poetry.
