Grade 5/6 Poetry

June 3, 2015

In recent weeks our grade 5 and 6 students have been developing their skills in poetry as part of our daily writing program.  They have had the opportunity to experiment with various types of poems and have used their poems as a way of sharing and displaying their knowledge in subjects such as History.

Heath H produced this excellent acrostic poem on famous Australian opera singer, Dame Nellie Melba.

Nelli, the Queen of Farewells, “More Farewells then Nellie Melba” they Said!

Eating Lavishly, Performing Just as Much!

Luxurious Mansion, Remodelled for Remembrance..

Life, Song and Joy, the Meaning of a Simple Life, a Good Life, a Great Life!

Inspiring, Admiring, Flawless and Symbolic!

Enterraining for a Living, More than Just a Starr…Mother of Opera! A Pioneer!


Melba, She Called Herself, Diva of The era!

Everyone Admired, More Than Simply Inspired!

Leaving Home for Nothing More than Song!

Best of the Best, Settling  for Nothing Less!

Australia, Her Country, Admires Her From Home, Proud and Overjoyed!.
