Haikus, Tankas and Cinquains – poems by Class 3

In Class 3 we have been looking at different forms of poetry.

Haikus have 3 lines. On line one there are 5 syllables,on line two there are 7 syllables and on line 3 there are 5 syllables.

Tankas have a 5,7,5,7,7 syllable pattern

Cinquains are more difficult. They have a 2,4,6,8,2 syllable pattern. The first line should be one two syllable noun. Line two should be two adjectives. Line 3 should be three verbs. Line four should tell a bit more about the subject and the last line should be a synonym.

Here are some of our poems.

Haikus

The apples are red                                                The white snow is cold

The sky is beautiful blue                                        The trees are white and frosty

It is very nice  –                                                      Everything is still

Alfie                                                                         Chloe

 

The waves are massive                                        Very rainy day

Millions of great big waves                                    Children playing in the rain

Sea is really deep                                                  Having lots of fun

It was a warm day

The weather was beautiful

Lovely bright green trees

Katie T                                                                 

 

The big orange trees                                       The squirrel climbs high

Are reflecting to the sea                                  With a peanut in his mouth

in the warm Autumn                                        To his family

Kelsie                                                              Rio

 

Lighthhouse standing tall

Waves crashing against rocks

Thundering loudly

Tankas

A summer river                                                  The orange duck slides

Where the trees shine on water                         He says “ouch” duck gets back up

Animals drinking                                                Duck gets in the pond

Bears hiding in woods, sleeping                        Duck starts dancing and sliding

All is peaceful, no loud noise                             Night night duck sleep tight, dream big

Ruby                                                                Ava

 

Oh dear I am dumb                                               The sky is cloudy

I dropped my nut down the tree                             The waves crash against the rocks

AHH!! I fell down the tree too                                 The man is watching

Think I broke my leg                                               The trees blow against the wind

Please take me to the vets – Please!                      The waves are going to flood

Rebecca                                                                 Hannah

 

Up in the tree                                                         One icy morning

Oops,Big Nutty drops the nut                                  Icicles hanging from trees

Oh no the branch snaps                                         They look so frosty

Big Nutty falls out of the tree                                  They all swing from side to side

And was never seen again                                     They all look like cool crystals

A lonely robin                                                           Halloween is here

Flying in a cold forest                                              All of us will celebrate

Looking out for food                                                And you can dress up

Icy trees trees too cold to land                                You can have lots of candy

Suddenly I find some food                                      Plus you can stay up late

Sean                                                                      Emma

 

The nice clear blue sky

the water reflects the trees

the beautiful leaves

but the trees are very tall

the water is very clear
