Year 6 – Poetry Unit Sp1 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.

Guarding Secrets

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.

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