Today we are looking at Haiku poems.
Haiku poems describe the subject with sensory detail. Haikus are meant to give the reader a brief sense of the subject using the senses.
Have a listen to the song below which gives you a brief reminder of what a syllable is.
Have a go at writing your own Haiku poems, even though they are shorter so may seem easier, it is tricky to get the right amount of syllables.
Don't forget it is only 3 lines: first line contains 5 syllables, second line contains 7 syllables and third line contains 5 syllables.
I have put a Haiku poem I made below as well as some pictures of ones other people have made.
The weather is cold,
Outside is like a freezer,
The wind is so strong
Year 2 challenge:
Can you write a Haiku poem describing something using similes and descriptive language. If you email it to us I will try and work out what you are describing.
