Hey you! Have a look at our Haikus :)

Updated: Mar 16, 2022

Haikus are Japanese poems. They have three lines with a total of 17 syllables. The first line has 5, the second line 7 and the third line has 5. We wrote them about rivers to link with our geography topic.

Mr Nay

The old River Nene

It is hundreds of years old

It is very clean


The River Nene flows

Out into the mouth it goes

So the waves will know

Taylor J

The Nene starts up high

Meandering on towards

An end at The Wash

Mr Nay

It flows so gently

Glittering on the surface

As it goes through hills


The river is old

It flows south towards its mouth

To the cold blue sea


The old River


Its surface a glossy sheen

Because its so clean


The great River Nene

Is just right for greedy ducks

My sister feeds them.

Leyla Bennet

I will always adore

The amazing River Nene’s

Beautiful creatures


Where I live it floods

Waters from the Nene at foot

Nature is closer

Mr Hollingsworth

Meandering free

Navigating to the wash

The great river Nene

Mrs Kent
