A Kennings Poem by Year 2

Published on 10/06/19

Year 2 have been getting creative with their use of words.

If you want to know what a 'kenning' is ask any member of our year! 2M only took 15 minutes to make a complete poem using the strict 'kenning' rules and it describes the sea beautifully. You can close your eyes and imagine all the action within the smallest of seas.
