Thursday 3rd October 2019 – National Poetry Day – Year 4 – Kennings

Filed under: English,English,Year 4 @ 4:08 pm

This afternoon, Year 4 have been creating kennings. A kenning is a way of describing something using clues rather than just saying what it is. Each line is two words long (not including the ‘a’). The word kenning comes from a Viking phrase which means: ‘A two worded phrase describing an object, emotion, person or animal.’ It is like a ‘mini riddle’ used to describe something.

For our kennings we described different animals. The children enjoyed this type of poetry and they are looking forward to starting our poetry unit next week. Below are some of our kennings. Can you guess the animals?
