Students work from Jo’s poetry group:
Fairy penguin by : Frankie Schwarcz
I can smell my prey from a mile away.
I can hear the foamy waves crashing above me.
I can see the swimmers paddling in the shallows.
I can touch the bottom of the frightful fishing boats.
I can taste the salty sea water seeping into my beak.
And I hate the grimy oil flows from the engine.
I am a purple octopus. by Maddie
I can smell the boats bad oil and it makes my cold skin boil.
I can hear the whales cry when they are about to fry.
I can see the fanta cans, floating near Japan.
I can touch the slimy rocks as I swim under the docks.
I can taste the jellyfish when they swish and glide and swing.
And I really really hate it when my tongue gets a big sting.
And i’m so excited to go back home.
The little penguin By Eme
I am a tiny fluffy baby penguin
I can smell the whale swimming by
I can hear the fish eating crunchy weed
I can touch the icy cold ground
I can taste the crunchy crispy crab
I love my life in the cold.
Whale!!!! By Florence Sharpe
I am a Blue Whale!!!
I can smell the tasty krill in the ocean.
I can hear my family calling me with their clicks and whistles.
I can see my calf swimming beside me.
I can touch the oyster covered rocks scraping on my side.
I can taste the salty sea water in my mouth.
And I love it when I dive down to catch my food.
And I hate it when a group of killer whales attack.
Gretel’s acrostic poem…
Lovely spotted skin
Every family lives(of leopard seals that is)
Orcas are my enemy
Penguins better flee or they will die
Amazing tricks I can do, watch and I will show a few
Red blood will spill when I kill
Dreaded am I or I will turn up in pie
