Today’s Poetry Challenge Morning Rhino Class, Fancy a challenge? Today I would like you to have a go at writing a special type of poem called a Kenning. Kennings were first used in Anglo Saxon times. The famous Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf uses many kenning phrases, for example: Body = bone-house Ship = wave-floater Today, we can use Kennings to describe everyday people, animals and objects, for example a kenning about a dog could be: face-licker ball-chaser stick-carrier water-drinker tail-wagger floor-sniffer and so on…… Can you write a Kenning poem about the squirrel in the video below? Remember each line of the poem needs to contain only two words (noun – er verb) e.g risk-taker. Remember to send your poems via Class Dojo and I can post them on the website to share. Have fun!
