Year 7 Haiku Poems

In Year Seven English, we have recently been studying and creating various style of poetry.

Haiku poems are a Japanese form of verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven and five syllables. Haiku were originally designed for young school children and to capture a moment in nature. They are usually written in the present tense.

Here’s some examples of what the students created on both the traditional theme of nature and topics of their own choice
