A year 5 dragon !

We have been looking at poems by Pie Corbett for the past two weeks and we have been looking at the wonderful descriptions that he uses in his poems. We especially like the Recipe to make a Wolf, My Cat and City Jungle.

In shared writing today we began to write a poem describing a dragon.


                                                            Eyes like fireballs
                                                            gleam in the eerie darkness
                                                            He stares greedily at
                                                            vast shining heap of treasure.

                                                           Ragged, rough scales as hard as emeralds
                                                           lay over his leathery skin
                                                           As cold as moonless night.

                                                           Bright blades line his jaw
                                                           As sharp as swords
                                                           His molten breath
                                                           Melts the hardest stone.

We then began to write our poems about a mythical or magical creature and tried to use some of the ideas we have read. Watch this space to read more of our work 🙂
