Year 3 Sp1: The River’s Tale – Pathways to Poetry


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.

The River’s Tale

By imagining the memories of the River Thames through drama, music and research, pupils write their own central part to the poem. With links to Stone Age history, they develop vocabulary and rhyme, writing noun phrases and using powerful past tense verbs in their work.

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