After the gothic-themed poetry workshop, the Good 2 Great Year 7 students were encouraged to write their own poems. Here is a fantastic poem written by Raeesa Mank in 7P:
The monster under my bed…
By Raeesa Mank
A glittering, emerald eye shimmers from under my bed,
I quickly pull the duvet over my head,
I reluctantly peep out from under,
But then get startled by the loud noise, thunder?
I carefully pull my head out,
Then see long, blade-like claws, so I shout,
“Mummy, Daddy! Mummy, Daddy!
Please look under my bed, there is a baddy!”
Daddy slowly looks under the bed,
Then in a surprised voice he said,
“Don’t worry kiddo, there is no baddy!
It’s just the neighbours missing tabby!”
