Can YOU Haiku?

Year 6 children have been writing haiku poetry this week.  Haiku are very unique poems, originally from Japan.  They are short, just three lines long with five syllables in the first and last line and seven syllables in the second, so you have to choose your words very carefully.  But they can be very thought provoking and inspirational.

One pupil who showed our value of passion for haiku was Brandon.  He wrote two haiku, using his favourite school values as inspiration, to be read out in our Friday assembly reflection time.

Here they are…can you leave a comment below with your own haiku about one of our values?


You must show respect

To everyone in our school

Always stay friendly.



Try to do your best

Everyday in your schoolwork

Even when it’s hard!
