This week, we have been looking at poetry!

In English, we are currently reading an exciting book called ‘Ice Palace’, which features an evil character named Starjik. We wrote poems using powerful adjectives to describe the malevolent Starjik.

Additionally, we’ve recently been learning about Remembrance Day (the 11th of November) and the significance of poppies by reading the poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’. For homework, we then wrote our own Remembrance Day poems.

Two of our classmates put in a lot of effort and wrote fantastic poems which they then shared with the class. Watch them read their poems aloud below!

Erdra’s Starjik poem

Chamar’s Remembrance Day poem

Also check out the following acrostic poem, written by another one of our talented poets:


Remember those who fight
Everybody be thankful
Many brave soldiers
Every 11th of November, remember
Many lives were lost
Brave, strong and never gave up
Risking their lives for us
Armistice day – wear poppies with pride
November is the month
Crosses laid
Each year remember

Dripping blood-red like see-through raindrops
Attacking wearily, the soldiers advanced
Years of fighting ending in freedom – you wonder what our soldiers went through!
