In poetry Year 4 have been learning about Kennings. They are like ‘mini riddles’ and describe something without saying exactly what it is. The word ‘Kenning’ is derived from an old Norse word which means to ‘describe something in terms of another.’
After reading the book ‘I’ll Take You To Mrs Cole’ by Michael Foreman, Year 3 have also been writing poems about all the things they’d get up to if their parents and grandparents went out for the day and left them without any grown- ups! Much fun would of course be had, but everyone agreed that they would be very pleased to see their parents return at the end of the day!
