Strengthen Your Thinking - Autumn Leaves - Creative Writing



Part 1 - Autumn Leaves

Step 1: Art Appreciation 

Autumn is often described as a ‘warm’ season.  

  • Look at the ‘Autumn leaves’ painting by Millias.  What ‘warm’ words or phrases would you use to describe the painting and how it shows autumn?

 

Tip:

Try and do this step before looking at our examples, so you won’t be influenced by what is written – remember there is no right or wrong.

 

 

Step 2: Write a short poem

  • Write a 3 or 4-line poem using your warm autumn words from Step 1, inspired by the painting ‘Autumn Leaves.’  Remember a poem doesn’t need to rhyme.  Write your poem before reading our examples below, so you’re not influenced by them.

 

"I really enjoyed writing this poem."
