  2. Quickly Rebecca ate her tea
    Quickly because she needed a wee
    Quickly she stamped upstairs
    Quickly as she said her prayers
    Quickly she knocked on the door
    Quickly she stamped on the floor
    Quickly dad I need to go
    I’ve stamped so hard I broke my toe

    L.O To write a poem for Year 4’s class blog

    Surprisingly, the owl turns his head all the way
    Surprisingly, every single day
    Surprisingly, the owl do not blink
    Surprisingly, the owl do not know bling
    Surprisingly, owls eat mice
    Surprisingly, they’re just not as nice
    Surprisingly, owls hunt mice
    Surprisingly, always at night

  4. Tomorrow the Sun will rise high in the sky.
    Tomorrow is Monday, I’ll wave my dad goodbye.
    Tomorrow I will pack my bag for school.
    Tomorrow the sumdog competition will be cool.
    Tomorrow I will enjoy my apple in the playground.
    Tomorrow my friends and I will run around.
    Tomorrow is Friday, dad and I will build a fire using a log.
    Tomorrow I will be as happy as a sausage dog.

  5. Loudly, I shouted at the fluffy kitten,
    Loudly, the washing machine swirled around in the kitchen,
    Loudly, the sirens went off,
    Loudly, my brother coughed,
    Loudly, the fireworks bursted into the sky,
    Loudly, the plane set of and started to fly,

  6. Hungrily the cat eats the fish,
    Hungrily I close my eyes and make a wish.
    Hungrily the boy ran to the roads end,
    Hungrily the driver takes the next bend.
    Hungrily the seal dives down into the deep,
    Hungrily I fall into bed and sleep.
    Hungrily the young man loves life at sea,
    Hungrily the beautiful girl noticed me.

  8. Silently, the crab clicked his fingers together,
    Silently, the owl hooted in bad weather,
    Silently, the bird lost all his feathers,
    Silently, on the green grass the horse is tethered,
    Silently, the deer roamed through the meadow,
    Silently, the the beaver built his home by the river,
    Silently, the ant delivered his food to his mother,
    Silently, the rabbit played with his brother.

    Quickly, The shot of a gun flies through the air,
    Quickly, The man said look over there!

  14. One minute after midnight,
    the moon is shining bright.
    One minute after midnight,
    we just turned out the light.
    One minute after midnight,
    my dreams are high in the kites.
    One minute after midnight,
    the dog next door barks and keeps me up all night.
    One minute after midnight,
    the morning is closer I am so tired I can’t open my eyes

  15. Quickly, the milk spilled on the floor,
    Quickly, the footsteps to the door.
    Quickly, the children ran to the car,
    Quickly, the mum had to drive far.
    Quickly, a cyclist swerves her way past,
    Quickly, through the lights we are not last.
    Quickly, the children opened the gate,
    Quickly, the teacher ran before she was late,
    Quick is the bell but quickest off all,
    Is the smile on my friends face when they hear me call.

  16. Quietly
    Quietly, the baby sleeps,
    Quietly, the green frog leaps.
    Quietly, I sit and read a book,
    Quietly, I help my mum cook.
    Quietly, the clock ticks,
    Quietly, I do some tricks.
    Quietly, I sit and listen,
    Quietly, the stars glisten.
    Quiet is relaxing – but quietest of all
    is the sea crashing on the wall.

  17. Slowly I made a sandcastle.
    Slowly boat sailed on the sea.
    Slowly a crab nibbled at my toe.

    Slowly I knock on the door.
    Slowly a baby cried.
    Slowly I walked my dog.
    Slowly I went to sleep.

      *Great rhyme scheme and fronted adverbials
      W – Can you write a simile about the cat?

      • Same with me, Mr Cooke. I also like the fact that India has used a metaphor in her writing. I mean, I didn’t do it, and a lot of others didn’t do it.
