Year 1 Sp1: If I Had a Beak – Pathways to Poetry

£7.50

This new and exciting poetry unit is the first in a set of 3 released this year (if purchased as part of Pathways to Write this set aligns with spring 1 core unit). All aspects of poetry from the NC in reading, spoken language and writing composition will be covered across the full set. Summer 1 and Autumn 1 poetry units will be released in March and July 2021 respectively.

If I Had a Beak

Pupils study the language used in the poem and learn part of it. They compare it with similar poems found online by A.A. Milne. Using word-play and their senses, pupils imagine they had a beak of their own and even another nose! There are opportunities to discuss differences and uniqueness. They write additional lines for the poem.

You will receive an email with a link to download the planning and resources booklet.

You may also like to consider our poetry units for autumn 2, spring 2 and summer 2.
