Kenning Poems

Today we have been planning our Kenning poems by thinking of an object, animal or person we could describe. We know that there are 8 lines and each line only has 2 words on it. Each line describes your chosen object, animal or person. The clues start off hard and get easier and easier. Kenning poems originate from the Anglo-Saxon period and we will be writing our own tomorrow. Can you guess what Emily is describing from her planning?
