TASK - Write an acrostic poem using the word FIREBIRD
Use your fantastic phrases (they may need a bit of changing at the front to fit the letters) to describe the mythical Firebird. A bit like this:
Feathers shimmering like golden flames
Incredible wings of glowing fire
Red eyes, the colour of erupting volcanic lava
Everlasting life that rises from the ashes
Brilliant rays of sparkling light from its jewelled claws
Infinite colours hidden within a swirling cloak of feathers
Ruby-red talons to terrify her enemies
Deep-throated screech echoing across the mountains
