Grace’s Class (4th / 5th)
Alliteration poems are sentences or phrases that contain words that repeat the same beginning consonant sounds. Take a look at some of the Alliteration poems we wrote…
- Aine used lots of ‘S’ sounds in her poem:
Superb Sophie sat silently so she read her super story and spilled water. Somehow Sophie slipped slowly into a bath and got all soapy so now Sophie is kmnow as Superb Soapy Sophie.
- Scott repeated the ‘D’ sound and wrote:
Damp ducks drive dying fish down deeper
- Sophie D repeated the letter F in her poem
Freaky Freddie had no friends because he had a frog called Fergie
- Oisin’s poem used many repeated ‘S’ sounds
Smelly silly Sam had a silly slumber party. But in the slumber party Sam let off a very fowl stench!
A simile compares two things. It normally contains the words “like” or “as”.
We have being using similes in our writing to make it more interesting!
This month we wrote some simile poems.
The night is as cold as ice,
As black as coal as scary as a forest.
As quiet as a black hole. As strong as a HHH
That is the night!

My Lovely Dog
As white as cream, a dark shadow in the house,
fluffy like a grizzly bear, yet as tame as a rabbit.
The best dog I have ever had.
As fast a cheetah and dumb as a bird brain!
Don’t run away!
by Arran, 5th Class
He is as green as the grass.
He is as small as two feet
He’s as fat as an overgrown rat!
I picked a name for him – “Weird”
Weird is sometimes funny and sometimes annoying.
Sometimes he makes me sleep on the floor!
I don’t want him to go back to Mars.
