Personification Home Learning

Published Tuesday, February 18, 2014.
Last updated: Tuesday, February 18, 2014


Remember, personification is when a writer gives an object the qualities of a person.

Here are some examples.....

The leaves danced to the ground gracefully.

The leaves suddenly hopped off the tree.

The leaves gently waved goodbye to the towering tree.

The leaves cried out in pain as they fell from the tree.

The Car Monster

It lives in a place with no windows

Darkness and junk surrounds it

It sleeps, making no sound

But waits patiently for its owner


Then he arrives, daylight fills the room

The beast lies there, still, coat gleaming

It tempts its owner with what lies inside

Cosy, dry and comfy


In silence he sits, and the magic key wakes up the monster

A quick cough, a splurt, clearing its throat

It growls with huge lungs, louder and louder

Till it settles down to a constant purr.


Then its begins to move, eyes wide open

Its dark outside and needs to see clearly

It turns without effort, hugging the pavement

Looking straight ahead. 


The rain starts again and he wipes his brow

It doesn’t mind getting wet, as long as his owner is dry

Another beast comes beside him and it gets angry

Growling again and then off it shoots into the darkness.

Read the poem and think about what the different verses are describing.

Can I write a poem using personification?

I would like you to write your own poem based on an object that isn’t alive, but one we use regularly.  Describe it as it goes through everyday activities. Look around your home for an object to personify if you are stuck. Don't mention the name of the object or thing in your poem. On Thursday we will read each other's poems and try to guess the subject of the poem.

Possible things to write about: 

A pencil case, a washing machine, an item of clothing, a clock, a bus, an aeroplane, a playground..... 


Minimum length: three verses of four lines each. But of course more is fine!

Please complete it in your Red Literacy home learning books.
