Season Haiku Poems 🍂 🌻 🌱 ❄️

In English I had to write a Haiku poem for every season so here is what I have done 

I was very cold
the ice was slippery cold 
and I was freezing

Bluebells glow purple 
even yellow daffodils 
spring blooms summer sun 

The fresh summer breeze  
Ice blocks give me brain freeze 
Summer is my thing 

As Autumns first leaves 
Begin to slowly fall they dance 
Captured by the breeze   

What is a Haiku...... 
A Haiku is a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.

Metaphor and Similes

My name is Lucy, 
 in English this year 2020 I am year 10. I have been learning about metaphors and similes this is what I have found out about both of them. 

What is a metaphor  ~ A figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.  

What is a simile ~ A figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind. (e.g. as brave as a lion ).

The Large Intestine 



The Large Intestine

The major function of the large intestine is to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter and transmit the useless waste material from the body.

The colon is also called the large intestine. The ileum (last part of the small intestine) connects to the cecum (first part of the colon) in the lower right abdomen. 
Weird example
The whale has the largest large intestine. That comes to more than 150m of intestine in the case of a large sperm whale and possibly as much as 220m for a blue whale.
