English – Write an “Over the Rainbow” poem

Write a poem about what you are looking forward to doing as lockdown ends. It could be one thing which forms the focus of your whole poem, such as a sport or seeing a person; or your poem could be about many things.


You should choose the style of your poem, for example, rhyming, kennings, haiku (though don’t be tempted by a haiku just because it’s short as it’s pretty tricky!) Remember to use the correct layout for your style, i.e., stanzas.


Consider the images that you are building up for the reader. Using your knowledge of using synonyms from last week, choose at least five words to replace to make them more powerful.
