Limericks have been the focus for reading and writing in Year 6 Blue. Students were given many opportunities to share and read the poetry genre of limericks. They were then able to identify the criteria for writing a limerick. To be successful at writing limericks, the poet uses a specific rhyming pattern [a - a -b - b - a], the poem is humorous and tends to make sense from nonsense, often through the use of different figures of speech. Read and enjoy these limericks written by 6 Blue - Jest for fun!
