Gingy
 
Gingy's sapphire blue eyes, sparkle in the moonlight.
His soft ears shake up, seeking hidden sounds when he is hunting for food.
He twitches his pink nose sensing the gentle breeze,
Suddenly a stench of danger sends a warning to his soul.
 
Brown, sparkling whiskers glitter when it is dusk.
 
Gingy the cat straightens his tail in search for combat,
Digging his paws in the ground to leap in to battle,
As he tries to find his sister.
 
 

Poem by Theo

What silently waits in the curtains at night?

What’s underneath your cover just keeping out of sight?

What’s patiently waiting while you're counting sheep?

What never jumps out unless you’re fast asleep?

What makes all the creaks, cracks and clangs in your house?

It isn’t the hamster, or your dog, or a mouse.

Those noises are made by mysterious creatures.

Read on if you dare and you might meet the seekers.

WALT: Infer how a character is feeling

Deona 4H

Silently, the kitten twitched her whiskers rolling up and down as if she was fighting a giant monster. Claws upright, sharp nails, chestnut coloured stripes dashing like creamy ice-cream. Agile legs straight as could be, scratchy paws, ivory nail digging through a dim bush. One moment, in a sudden heart beat came on challenging the kitten to fight a giant troll. Suddenly, the kitten’s fragile fur came back and its sleepy eyes shook making the sound of a pin drop. Clink, clink went the kitten into her next dream. Floating circles in her mighty fluffy blanket. Rosy, gold flowers fluttered like butterflies in her dream. Warm cosy fluffy insulating blanket wrapped the kitten cuddly. Her juicy melon fur stretched out into the open world. Without a sound, she jumped down fiercely to the trampoline tummy of the troll… Manoeuvring skilfully like a jungle explorer swiping away the greeny leaves. Leaping down for action, bronze branches dangled down like tears of sadness. Delicate skin swifted gracefully and delicately.


Florence 4H

Within a second, the adorable feline closed her soft and silky eyes and drifted off into sleep. Without a sound, the midget acrobat rolled on her fluffy back as her tail swirled around the soft snow blanket. Silky soft lips moved as the sound of a yawn was blocked by smooth milk chocolate paws. A fuzzy, sleek and fluffy tail swirled and tickled her silky strawberry red nose. Her razor sharp grey claws faded away as she closed her eyes and dreamt about her next adventure. Delicately, her honeycomb brown paws stretched out like a wide opened parachute.
 
What happens when you take a noun, an abstract noun, a verb and a preposition?
 
Poem by Ava
 
Inside a gigantic forest of secrets and thoughts,
I saw a wand of happiness to fix my thoughts.
Then I found a gem of braveness for my thoughts.
Beside the forest of fear and silence,
I captured a crystal of more fear.
I discovered the gem of joy but unfortunately it slipped away in sad tears.
Outside the water tank of jealousy,
I found an unusual fish in the tank which could take my jealousy away.
I touched the tank and I felt amazing.
Under the road of secrets and sadness,
Outside the secret corner of sadness,
People just wanted to be like me.
I heard a car over the road
and I wanted to spill my secrets out loud.
 
Poem by Lara
 
Under the mountain of silence,
I saw a golden chest of happiness.
In the Stable of secrets,
I found a cat of fear,
Who jumped on my head.
Above the jungle of happiness,
I discovered a flower of anger.
Behind the cloud of possibilities,
I saw my future as a doctor.
Inside the cave of forgiveness,
I captured a hint of sorrow.
 
Poem by Aoife
 
Beside the mountain of curiosity,
I captured the puzzle of life.
Next to the river of sadness,
I saw a glimpse of hope.
Inside the cave of forgiveness,
I captured a hint of sorrow.
Inside the pyramid of mystery,
I found the key of truth
And unlocked the door to history.
 
Poem by Aska
 
Among sky blue ocean of power,
I found a gem of richness
and it was magical.
Inside a green, giant jungle of anger,
The tigers, lions and every angry animal
roared at me.
Above the lake of sadness,
I found an elf crying
and it made me cry too.
Between the cave of love,
I saw two tiny tarantulas falling in love
and it was adorable.
Behind the mountain of naughtiness,
I had to babysit all of the naughty children
who threw food and books at me.
Outside the castle of fear,
Everyone was full of terror
then I tried to make them happy.
 
Poem by Oliver
 
Beside the mountain of secrets,
I found a diamond of honesty
which revealed my deepest secrets.
Within the jungle of jealousy,
I captured the black tailed wobbler
that made the town very angry.
Beyond the castle of confusion,
I destroyed the cove of unconsciousness
which fixed the castle of confusion.
In the forest of fear,
I opened the cage of courage
then I was brave enough to go further.
 
Poem by Aidan
 
Beyond the riverbank of curiosity,
I captured the deadly frog
that scared everyone with its mighty bite.
Under the ocean of sadness,
Lay the sad shark
who has a nasty grin on his face.
Below the museum of happiness,
Stood the statue
who had a nice smile.
In front of the park of kindness,
Kind clouds gazed down
at the park filled with happiness.
 
Poem by Fintan
 
Along the Valley of the Ump,
Lives the fealess Hippocrump,
Her eyes are glimmering, emerald, green,
Her teeth: white, sharp and mean,
She lives upon a water fall,
Where aquamarine waters fall,
Her hair is curly, thick and brown,
Her feet land with a POWND,
But if she drinks from the lake of goo,
Her hundreds of teeth will come loose.
 
Poem by Samuel
 
Inside the trough of treasure,
Aerodynamic ants silently smash sad sheep to sheds.
I saw wet water bottles wade wildly whilst whacking rampaging rats.
Below the tree of time,
Bacon bakes baboons and Hippo’s hog hamburgers, exploding eggs and carnivorous cakes.
Above the house of Happiness,
Brutal bats bash boiling boulders, ambling ants, hollow horses and crazy caterpillars.
Upon the castle of joy,
Cabbages crave coconuts, cocoa beans and cardboard boxes,
But they loathe lunatics!
