Writing a snail riddle

We have written riddles before so you might be able to remember what to do.A riddle is a type of poem that gives the reader clues about something. The person reading it has to work out what the riddle is about so it is important to make your clues interesting and not too simple. Remember we write riddles in first person using words like,     I , my , mine , me , myself 

They always start and end with, What am I? 

Each clue is written on a new line and we usually write between 6 to 8 clues.

Here is my riddle


What am I?

Some people are scared of me but I am very shy!

I sometimes live in your house or outside.

I can be huge , medium sized or tiny.

My favourite food is juicy flies!

I am not an insect because I have got eight legs.

My legs are covered in little hairs.

I can spin silk to make a web.

My babies are called spiderlings.

What am I?


A spider of course!


I would like you to write a riddle about a snail.

Remember to include some of English skills.

  • adjectives
  • conjunctions
  • commas in a list
  • ?  and   !
  • capital letters and full stops
  • neat handwriting with finger spaces.
