As part of our work with ‘The Explorer’, the class wrote collaboratively to create a free-verse poem about the local Marsden Beach. We reviewed poetic devices such as onomatopoeia and personification to add descriptive detail instead of using traditional poem structures like rhyming or acrostic patterns.

Have a read of some of our brilliant sentences below!

“As the sun started its slumber, the violent waves crashed into the cliffs.” – TH and RB

“Punching the rocks, invading the land.” UA and YI

”Caws of seagulls singing in the air, whilst roaming freely in the sky.” RR, KB and SG

“CRASH! The rocks scattered away from tides” SU and AH

”Snow-like foam came crawling onto the shore.” CE and EC-N
