Celebrating Success 2022

On their transition days, those pupils who had English on their timetables worked on a poem. They were asked to write a poem called "If..." and link it to their transition days. A selection of these poems can be found below:

 

If….

 If my Transition Days were

Flowers

Mine would be the most beautiful and sweet smelling

Jasmine blooms

 

If my Transition Days were a

Type of Weather,

Mine would be the warmest and sunniest Summer Day

Of people eating ice cream.

 

If my Transition Days were

Cakes,

They would be the sweetest frosted doughnuts

that Fisher and Donaldson make.

 

If my Transition Days were a

Fairground Ride,

Mine would be the waltzers.

Full of twists, turns and surprises.

By MM

 

If my Transition Day was a

Cake,

It would be a Victoria Sponge

Light and airy with a jam surprise in the middle

 

If the Transition Day was an

Animal,

It would be a dog.

Lovely to play with but sometimes do a little yelp!

 

If my Transition Day was a

Food,

Mine would be a sour sweet

Nippy at the start but sweet at the end.

By NE

 

If the Transition Day was a

Flower,

Mine would be a lily with bright delicate petals

Glistening with dew from a late Summer rain.

 

If the Transition Day was an

Animal

Mine would be a slow sloth,

Making his way from tree to tree.

 

If the Transition Day was a

Fairground ride,

Mine would be a corkscrew upside-down roller coaster

Clunking along with unexpected twists and turns every second.

By IC

 

If the Transition Day was a

Burger,

Mine would be juicy

and packed with flavour.

 

If the Transition Day was a

Car,

Mine would have a full power engine

Even after a long drive.

 

If the Transition Day was

Weather,

Mine would be the exciting winds

Off the coast of Shetland.

 

If the Transition Day was a

Plant,

Mine would be a helpful tree taking in CO2

And breathing out oxygen.

By JG

 

If the Transition Day was a

Box of Chocolates

Mine would be all caramels

Sweet and Smooth

 

If the Transition Days was a

Pen,

Mine would be a lovely bright inky pen

Smudged and messy by the end of the day.

 

If the Transition Days was a

Plant,

Mine would be a tall sunflower

Happy and optimistic.

 

If my Transition Day was a

House,

Mine would be a fixer upper to knock down and

Build stronger and better than before.
