The Haunted House by Alex

The mysterious, strange bookshelf hung gently from the cracked, suspicious wall. The old, broken window lay close to the crooked branch. The large, rusty grandfather clock lies next to the old, dirty mantelpiece. The uncomfortable, Victorian-style arm chair is next to the dusty vase. The glistening, beaming chandelier magically hung from the cracked rusty ceiling. The tremendous, weird mirror lay next to the old-fashioned, unattractive paintings. The old, uncomfortable settee lays near the magical, suspicious rug.

The Hogwarts Sound Collector

Today we have been adapting the Sound Collector poem and giving it a magical Hogwarts twist.

We all started with the same opening stanza, then we wrote our own stanzas.

Can you share your favourite line from your poem?

A stranger called at Hogwarts this morning

Dressed all in black and grey

Put every sound into a bag

And carried them away.
