Writing Riddles

This morning in Year 5 we have been learning about riddles. We have worked together to solve riddles and have then used this to write some of our own.

We needed to remember to:

  • Give clear descriptive clues, maybe using figurative language.
  • Have a clear answer in mind when writing our riddles.
  • Use present tense verbs.

Below are some of the riddles we have created. Can you use the clues to guess the answer?
