Beautiful Poetry from Year 6 on their Taster Day

As part of the Y7 taster days, students explored the art of writing a haiku in English. They went outside to collect words and images to turn into ‘pictures in words’.


Dancing over rocks

Quickly and gracefully

In emerald green suits.

                        By Shreya and Jia-Jia


Papery petals,

Guarded by thorny soldiers,

Flamingo pale pink,

                        By Ellis and Myles

The Cricket

Moves like a slinky

Lurking like a tiny spy

Vanishes quickly

                        By Anayk, Liam and Amar


Sprouting from the grass,

Dusty brown umbrellas grow,

Lonely and ignored.

                        By Jasmine and Tanvi

Aloe Vera

Rough on the outside

A green heart on the inside

Please don’t mess with him.

                        By Cornelia and Yusrah

Dragon Fly

Soft and gentle wings,

Glitter like a butterfly

A lacy diamond.

                        By Priya and Amos

Flamboyant Flower

Dances on the grass,

Red and sparkling with dew drops,

Soft like a tutu.  

                        By Daisy and Matilda

Pink Beauty

Swaying in the wind,

Glittering dew in the sunshine

With its darkened heart.

                        By Vihaan, Nicolas and James

The Tree 

Cupped like wine glasses

Lime green leaves move like water

Tall, smooth and quiet.

                        By Praveen and Harmeet

The Beetle

A tiny black shell

Waddling across the table

A shiny black jewel.

                        By Nathan and Belize


Floating like a balloon,

Colourful patterns glitter

Shining from its dress.

                        By Miriam and Kulthuma
