Year 3 I Saw a Peacock
Pupils use ideas from this traditional trick poem as well as poetry and illustrations from The Barefoot Book of Earth Poems to write about an imaginary journey. They are inspired by Icelandic landscapes and surrealist art to create similes and investigate different forms for their nonsense-style poem.
