‘Goodbye Tall Ships’ by Harriet Sparling, Age 12 Years

Bunting draped across the town and tall ships Pops and bangs and fizzes and whizzes Dogs chasing cats chasing birds chasing mice People waving flags Dots and lines and zigzags everywhere The sky is full of colours Blues greens reds yellows oranges and purples Tall ships glide, small ships float, RNLI fly Steven the seagull… Read more »

‘A Sky of Colours’ by Lara Norris, Age 12 Years

Whoosh, sizzle, crackle, boom, Watch those fireworks soar and zoom, Scarlet, amber, aqua, lime, A sky of colours all the time. See those tall ships hit the sea, People are as happy as can be, Watch those seagulls call to friends, Watch the flags twist and bend.

‘At The Tall Ships Day’ By Aysha Cattran, Age 12 Years

At the warm Tallships day there are … People swimming in the bay seagulls flying around all day People looking out to sea people applauding at the view of the deep blue sea Animals everywhere running about all in the excitement of no doubt Cats and Dogs run and play whilst people are waving flags… Read more »

‘Bang, Pop, Whizz’ by Frank Adams, Age 12 Years

Bang, Pop, Whizz, Zoom That’s how the fireworks fly. Up,up into the sky, Up where the tall ships sigh Up, up in the very high sky. Jelly fish tenticals whizzing all around Bubbles in our ears as the fireworks POW The fireworks go Pop Bang Sizzle Sizzle That’s how the fire works go. Yellow, blue,… Read more »

‘Zoom’ by Monty Lyall, Age 12 Years

Zoom, zoom Be careful of the boom It might not zoom but it has a big boom. People, people waching from the tower, I don’t know why but they have been wating for an hour!

‘Colour and Noise’ by Patrick Toraskar, Age 12 Years

As people scream and cheer Cats hide from the fireworks that go Whizz, pop, bang in the sky. Colours, colours in the sky, Pink, pink, yellow, blue. As the night goes on you feel tired But excited for more and more fun. As the evening grows darker the noises And celebrations continue.

‘White Sails’ by Archie Pilcher, Age 12 Years

White sails as white as snow. Sailors dancing and prancing round and round. Fireworks flashing and crashing in the air. Birds going higher so they don’t catch on fire. There stands tall ships as tall as the sky. Then they all start to wave good bye.

‘Tall Ships’ by Oli, Age 9 Years

Tall ships Gushing and rushing Tall Ships The wobbly knobbly decks The slippery sloppery sea water everywhere When it’s the morning what a delight Waves crashing and bashing on the ships. By Oliver
