Dragon Personification Poetry - Day 5


You have now done all the tricky work, coming up with the element for the dragon, thinking about your planning grid yesterday and filling in lots of interesting ideas for your dragon. 

Today we are going to put this all together and become poets.


First you need your grid from yesterday - it looks like this:


Have a look at what you have written and read through your ideas.

We will be following the same structure as the original poem we looked at.

Here is a verse from it about the 'Wind Dragon'.


Think about your own dragon and how you are going to use some of your description from your planning sheet.


Use the structure set out below to set up your poem:

(I have also attached a word template if you would like to type straight onto it or print it off to write on).


First line - how does your dragon 'Move'.

Second line - how does your dragon 'Sound' 

(if you can try and find a rhyming word for the end of the first and second line).


Third line - How does your dragon 'Look'

Forth line - How does your dragon 'Behave' (what does it do?)

(if you can try and find a rhyming word for the end of the third and forth line).


Here is my attempt at the poem - see what you think.



The Star Dragon 

Like a diamond in the dark, he glistens at night,

Lighting the way for adventure and shining so bright.

Through the galaxies he travels, past planets and moons,

Melodically singing his ghostly, galactic tunes. 

By Mrs Hackett


Have a go, write your own poem and I look forward to seeing them.
