A Stormy Day at School

Written with assistance from Room 17 Year 3 students at Fulham North Primary School, 2018.

The mud around our classroom looks like melted chocolate.
The wind rattling the window
sounds as loud as an ice-cream truck!
My wet socks in my soggy shoes smell like mouldy donuts.
The hail hitting the veranda tastes like an icy milkshake
when I place some on my tongue.
And after school,
the puddles I jump in feel like mushy apple pies.

I wonder why I’m so hungry when I finally get home?

    You probably felt hungry when you get home because there is melted chocolate,an ice cream truck, donuts ,icy milkshakes and apple pie at school!


  2. I loved the use of description in this poem. I chose this poem because I enjoy it when it rains during school as we get to watch movies inside the classroom. Also, this poem made me very hungry. I feel like some chocolate or a milkshake.

    • Hi Chomilka,

      Thank you for your comment. I’m glad you liked my poem. I am a teacher so I prefer it when it doesn’t rain at lunch time so all the kids can go out side and run around, and I can go to the staff room for a break!


  3. I always love it when it rains at school because we get to stay inside and we play hide & seek.
    Did you enjoy the rainy days when you went to school?
