Poets using their senses in sixth class

This week in sixth we learned how to write a special type of poetry called sensory poetry. It’s a bit tricky at first but you just have to follow the rules.

Each line of the poem has to vividly describe something that was either seen, felt, smelt, tasted or heard by the poet. We had to be careful not to make it too easy for the readers so use of words such as “felt” “tasted” etc. had to be avoided.

We follow a writing process so we’ve finished our first and second drafts and will be publishing our poems soon. Stay tuned for photos next week or visit us on Open Night to have a read of our amazing poetry!
