Have you ever wished you were Mary Lennox, finding the old wooden door behind the ivy and creeping into a forgotten garden? This poetry unit will allow your pupils to enjoy and play with the beautiful language used by Francis Hodgson Burnett in her classic novel ‘The Secret Garden’. They will be able to create their own poems using a variety of poetry techniques about a forbidden and secret garden.
