Year 6 have been into our woodland area to learn maths in the outdoors. They went on ‘Number Hunts’ to find multiples of different numbers. This then led to a discussion about the fact that some numbers can be multiples of more than one number and looking at the relationship between factors and multiples. The …

Flowing Free

Splashing , crashing , away he goes. Running away , friend or foe? Nobody knows where he’ll go. He’s a nomad , a tramp in adventure. Crashing  like a tank upon the river bank. Slips and slides like the ocean tide. Away he rides with the ocean tide. Flowing with the rocks that lead to the docks. …

The river

Crashing into the rocks as the angry river barges past, Gently the river tickles feet. Speeding past the swans, The fish swim down to the river bed. Blub Blub Blub Go the fish, Wandering gently through towns and cities. Leading the ships towards the sapphire ocean.   Joshua

The Rushing river

He’s running through the valley, Snatching at the river bank. Taking in the view , Tickling the smooth pebbles The river sings a calm tune And gently sits against the rocks.   Jake

The Raging River

The rivers a rambler, a man, a tramp. Waving his hands up and down, He pulls a rather nasty frown. As he hums , He sucks on his thumbs. The river dances and prances up and down, while rushing straight past the town. Sneakily he takes the green smelly socks, And tickles the feet of …

The river

It rushes beside the river bank, Gently it tickles the feet of the rocks, Water drifts past gurgling and singing, Waves sprinting past the rocks, Splash! Splash! Splash! The water attacks the rocks, The water hits the rocks like a bunch of missiles, Splashing as they land, Smashing! crashing! Swallowing them up, Angrily barging its …

The Rushing River

River water sprinting past, Splashing and bashing on top of the rocks. Crashing and bashing into the rocks, Down the river side. Viciously pushing and shoving , As it flows down the river bank. The water rages down, Down to the sapphire sea. The angry river, Gallops towards it’s home.   By Malachy

The River

The river flows calmly . When a storm hits it rushes past . Bouncing off the rocks.   Pushing all of the small fish the wrong way. The river slowly calms. It gently tickles the rocks. By Michael

Rivers Journey

Gurgling up from a hole in the ground peering over the edge crawling through the countryside dashing down the hills wandering around towns looking at shops stretching,twisting desperate to reach the ocean.   Claire

THE TERROR RIVER….

The river is a mystery by it self. What it doee is nothing to us. It always kick’s it always hit’s. It’s not scared of anything No one would ever go on it because you would be pushed off of it.   Jack E

River

The river’s gushing through the rocks, Cautiously looking out for ducks. Green stuff on the rocks, Turns out to be moss. Rocks swimming under swans, Watching out for orange webs. Bang, Bang, Bang! The rivers running over pebbles, As quick as the children can peddle. The mini waves are dancing over the rocks, Waiting for …

The River

Tickling the swans as they swim by, On their way they meet a butterfly. Angrily the river runs down the rocks, At the same time the river attacks the rocks. As the sea weed smacks the rocks, The river swifts through the rocks. Quack Quack Quack Go the ducks, When they are in the river. …

Rushing and Gushing

Rushing and gushing as the day goes by. Then the weather changes and the river rages high. Smashing and crashing against the rocks, Making his way to the dock. He travels from place to place without any grace.   He’s wide and long like a long lace. Pushing and shoving as he goes by, He …

The river

Bashing against the rocks the river storms past, He tumbles down hills and rages back up them. He tickles the river bank as it passes by, People skimming baby pebbles, They skid along the sapphire carpet, Then the river will rise   By Cameron yr6

Sapphire Beauty…

She’s a sapphire beauty, Tickling the baby pebbles. Flowing and gushing where ever she goes! It hums and sings, As gently as can be. She sits there waiting for someone to meet. Until then, She crashes and bashes upon the rocks. And tickle swans feet. She flows alone, No-one beside her. Her wish is to …

The storm

Sadly, the lonely fairy laid on the stone pillar of the Roman Temple. Zeus, angry at Alex, caused the storm to rage all around her. Rising sea water licked the pillar. Alex wept as she had no idea how to solve it.
