In Year 3 the boys have been learning about cinquain (five line) poems. There are various types of cinquains but the ones we chose are written as follows: the first line is a one word title; the second line contains two adjectives; the third line has three words ending in –ing; the fourth line has four or more words that make a sentence; and the fifth line is one word that is a synonym of the title or is very similar to it. The boys enjoyed the challenge and came up with some wonderful examples.
Soaring, Flying, Gliding
Delicate toucan perched on a branch

Growling, ripping, stampeding
Taking all the precious meat
(Written by Kiyotaka and Aditya)
