Year 6 have been exploring different types of poetry during this half term. They have explored Japanese Haiku, written firework poems using onomatopoeia and created their own Kennings.

A Kenning is a poem which is created using a two-word phrase made up of a noun and a verb.  A Kenning relates to the Old Norse tradition of naming things like weapons, for example Skull-Splitter or Blood-Taker. Kennings came into our language via the Anglo-Saxon and Norse cultures.
