Year 3 write poems about the moon

We have been learning how to use metaphors in English this week. Using our 'Take One Picture' as a stimulus, we have written poems about the moon. First, we read 'Six Ways of Looking at the Moon' by Pie Corbett and then produced our own versions. All of the children included some brilliant and creative examples.

"The moon is half a glittering ring, broken in the stormy sky." -Ava

"The moon is a bright light bulb, swaying in the dead of night." -Felix

"The moon is a crumbly rice cake, left on a picnic blanket." -Charlie

"The moon is a suspicious clock in the mysterious night sky."- Zara

"The moon is a paper plate, empty on the party table." -Marlon

"The moon is a half sucked smarty,lying on the dirty floor." -Emilie

"The moon is a sad satsuma, in the darkness of the fruit bowl." Evan

You can read all of our wonderful poems when you visit our 'Take One Picture' exhibition on March 10th.
