Our theme for writing this term is "to entertain" so we have been learning various types of poetry: Haiku, Cinquain and Reverse Poetry.
Idaliah has enjoyed writing Haiku in particular. These poems have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the final line. She says "You can actually express yourself in a different way. Here is an example of a piece she is working on.
Alizzandro has been refining an example of Reverse Poetry - this is where we use phrases that are opposite very carefully to make a poem which tells one story from top to bottom, then the opposite story when you read from the bottom to the top. Alizzandro commentted "I like this type of poem because it makes the reader feel surprised once they read it upwards". You can read it here.
