Metaphor Poems by P5

We wanted to share these beautiful metaphor poems some of our P5s wrote with you.

Sun Poem 

The sun is big, bright and hot.  

It shines light down to earth  

And makes our plants grow. 

It lights up the vacuum of space  

And its rays illuminate the planets around.  

It makes people happy all year round.  

When I am happy, I am the sun. 

By Toby, P5A

The Forest

The warm sun is low in the sky, sun beams point to the different trees below.

Each tree is unique and rises to the sky, tall and strong.

The lush green grass is velvet to touch.

The muddy path weaves in and out, leading to the unknown.

When I am peaceful, I am the stillness of the forest.

By Lucas, P5B

The Sunny Wood

The golden path shimmers like a star.

Cheerful sunbeams light up the wood, bringing warmth all around.

Peaceful trees stretch up to the sky as if they are giants.

Leaves dance in the gentle breeze, swaying from side to side.

The grass is a fresh green carpet tickling my toes.

When I am happy, I am a sunny wood.

By Claire, P5B

Wave Poem

What a beautiful little wave.  

So shimmery and fun. 

Looks cool and wet, it goes well with the sun.  

The wave is so summery, and the shape is a circle.  

So nice and blue, like a reflection of the sky 

 When I am Excited, I am a wave.  

By Kacie, P5A.

Wave poem

The waves’ water is a see-through blue.

Whales swimming in the ocean.

Ripples in the sand.

Waves crashing through,

Surfers surf the wave of the very shiny blue.

The wave is a cloud, hard and soft.

Its shiny surface is a blue sun in the sea.

Dolphins jumping silently, side by side.

The seaweed is a snake, just harmless.

The deep sea is a night,

Blacker than black.

The sea is a jewel shining bright,

Like the sun.

When I am excited I am a wave.

By Cici, P5A.

The Ocean  

The ocean’s waves 

Are as sharp as a rhino’s horn. 

And the surface  

Is as sparkly as the stars in sky. 

Under the ocean  

It is as busy as a train in rush hour, 

Because it is a home 

For lots of different types of animals. 

The ocean is blue 

Just as the blue sky. 

It is just as big as Pluto. 

When I am busy, I am an ocean. 

By Brodie, P5A. 

The Waterfall

The waterfall creates

Lush plants and life.

The water rushes,

And drifts down the stream.

It is loud and cold,

But it can be quiet and warm.

The water flows,

Breaking off into different directions.

In the sun the water is transparent,

Revealing the rock formations behind it.

When I am relaxed, I am a waterfall.

By Tymek, P5A.

Bubble Poem

Round like the sun

They fly round and round

Up high to the light.

Bubbles float in the sky

So high they

Pop!

I am a bubble.

By Arran, P5A.

Bubbles

Floating in the air,

As if they are dancing.

Light shining through,

They are clear balls in the sky.

Bumping into each other,

As if they are in a funfair.

Slowly coming down,

Ready to catch,

They are balloons that go pop!

When I am distracted, I am a bubble.

When I am calm, I am a bubble.

By Katie, P5A.

Blanket

This blanket is fluffy and warm,

A bear hug in the middle of a storm.

There’s nothing to do,

Our hearts are blue,

The storm will pass

But this bear hug will last.

The world is asleep

And everything is crazy.

When I am lazy, I am a blanket.

By Lexi, P5A.

Blanket

The child is serene – obsessively watching Stampy Cat.

The blanket, so snuggly, feels like my Mummy.

His chair feels as comfy as 1000 teddy bears

And his house feels warm and comforting.

When I am content, I am a child in a blanket.

By Luke, P5B.

The iceberg’s story. 

The iceberg is a vast mound of ice, 

Floating across the cyan sea. 

It is big as the Titanic, 

It is as white as the clouds that fill the sky. 

It is calm and relaxing.

It is covered with colonies of penguins, 

Nesting and bringing stones for their nests. 

When the penguins are here, 

It is as noisy as an overflowing river going downstream. 

It is cold like the Antarctic because of how frozen it is, 

It is a cloudless sky. 

Silent as a mouse when the penguins have gone. 

When I am relaxed, I am an iceberg. 

 By Ben, P5A.

Fireworks 

The Fireworks were big, bright, fun and colourful. 

Loud noises went  

HISS!!! 

& FIZZ!!! 

On that night children went running about with sparklers. 

They were beautiful, spectacular lights. 

There were Catherine wheels, Rockets, Shooting Stars and Flying Saucers. 

Cold, hot chocolate, wrapped up, warm. 

When I’m HAPPY I am a Firework!!! 

By Meryn, P5A.

The Volcano

The volcano erupted as suddenly as a firework, 

With a waterfall of molten lava cascading down the side, 

And clouds of black smoke filling the sky, 

It’s fire of hell reaching down towards the sea. 

When I am ANGRY I am a volcano! 

By Christian, P5B.

My Beautiful Pond

The rocks gleam in the sunshine.

The orange fish are gemstones bobbing in the water.

The calm water gently ripples in the soft breeze.

The lily pad is as green as new leaves in Spring as they float along.

When I am relaxed, I am a frog on a lily pad in a beautiful, still pond.

By Hannah, P5B.

The Pond

The sky is crystal clear and baby blue.

The ice-cold water fills the air with the smell of seaweed.

The huge wave is loudly crashing, showing its turquoise swirls.

A shimmering rainbow appears in the spray.

When I am confident, I am a mighty wave.

By Keira, P5B.

The Reflection Pond

The calm water cleans my thoughts and it is cool to touch.

The tiny fish are as gentle as leaves, floating into the water.

The light gives a warm glow to my reflection.

The lily pads hover around me.

When I am happy and present, I am a pond.

By Cameron, P5B.

Social Bite

In Primary 3 we have been learning about religions and non-religious organisations.  We learned about Social Bite.  They are charity that believe that they can end homelessness with support from others.  They do lots of great things to help homeless people in Scotland and especially in Edinburgh.  Usually they do something called the ‘Big Sleep Out’ but they couldn’t do it this year so they did the ‘festival of kindness’ instead.  In Primary 3 we have been doing acts of kindness and lots of children slept on their floors to show support for the charity.  Grown ups sponsored us and we have already raised £620.

P6 Christmas Market

This year, due to the current worldwide pandemic, we had to do our Christmas Market differently. All three P6 classes took part, but remotely, and we decided to sell our goods online. 

At the start of the project we looked on the internet to try and find the best craft designs for the Christmas Market. Then we looked to see what materials we needed to make them. Our class made Christmas Pudding hama beads and Christmas star decorations. We had to discuss how much we were going to charge (50p and 75p). On Parentpay (our online booking system for parents) we loaded our goods up and sent picturse to all parents so they could see what they looked like. People started to order our goods. We checked the figures every few days and we made the correct amounts. Some days we did a lot of Christmas crafts! The stars took a long to make, as did the hama puddings. we closed the online system on Friday 11 December and delivered all the goods on Friday 18 December. 

We also wrote letters to local businesses and at The Gyle asking for donations to our raffle. We got lots of great prizes and we made over £700 on the raffle alone! Thank you to everyone who purchased from our Christmas Market. 

We all completed various Money Sense workshops online that covered special deals, budgeting, keeping safe online, the difference between debit and credit cards and how not to get into debt. We also booked a virtual holiday within a given budget using our iPads. In our final workshop we each chose a job and were given a monthly income budget. We had to decide which property we could afford, think carefully about luxuries and work out how much we had left at the end (if anything!)

We managed to raise over £1,200. 

Josh and Grayson, P6

This year we all knew that the Christmas Market was going to be different because of coronavirus. We could not have parents coming into school or children coming to buy items. So, we decided to make an online market.

In some afternoons, we would make the products. We would have certain people painting, others glueing and others tieng. We sold the finished products on parent pay.

We wrote letters to different companies in the hope of them donating a prize for the raffle. You had the option to order a ticket. There was a generous variety of prizes up for grabs. We drew the winning tickets all altogether. Congratulations if you won!

Each class had two  given designs to make. Every pupil chose two designs in their pairs  and we voted as a class to decide which design to do. Each primary six class were  assigned two designs to make for the market.

Despite the virus we managed to make a memorable Christmas market.

Thank you if you purchased an item or several. Happy Holidays!

Garden Grant

We were delighted to receive the news that we are to receive a grant for £250 from Brakes, our school lunch supplier, to fix up the raised beds in our vegetable garden which have become a little broken with wear and tear over the years. Eve, Layla and Hamish in P3 completed the application and have been some of keenest gardeners this session. They are looking forward to getting stuck into the fixing the beds next term.
