Weekend homework – riddles

Hi Year 3,

Remember your homework (apart from Bug Club and Maths Whizz) is to find out what a riddle is and copy out one you like.  Anyone who brings in a riddle on Monday gets 3 stickers!

Here is one fantastic example of a riddle, full of simile and metaphor:

Who dips, dives,
swoops out of space,
a buzz in his wings
and sky on his face:
now caught in the light,
now gone without trace,
a sliver of glass,
never still in one place?

Who’s elusive as a pickpocket,
lord of the flies:
Who moves like a rocket,
bound for the skies?
Who’s catapult, aeroplane,
always full-throttle?
Sky-diver, Jumping Jack,
Comet.

CAN YOU WORK OUT WHAT IT IS ABOUT AND WHAT EACH LINE MEANS?
