Good morning!


Colour Poems


We are going to be writing colour poems. Colour poems are short poems that describe colour with objects or abstract things(things you cannot touch), such as anger, sadness or happiness.


Lets start with the colour Red.


On a mind map write RED in the centre. 

Write words in the outer bubbles that are red or feelings that make you see red. For example; anger, tomatoes, hot lava, post box, , strawberries, cherries, roses. Write as many as you can. 


Next, have a go at writing a colour poem for RED


Here is an example:


Red is a cherry

Red is a rose

Red is anger

Red are the tomatoes



Practice first on some scrap paper or in your book. 


Have fun with this. Be creative with your ideas. Include some lovely pictures to decorate your poem.


Cant wait to read these!


Example of a mind map is below. Please include more bubbles in yours.
