2B Poems

Year 2 has been using the wonderful PETAA book Teaching Poetry to inspire our students to write creative and powerful poems. One of the types is simply called Animal poems which we have adapted to just calling ‘grammar poems’ as they follow a simple format:

Title

preposition + noun group

pronoun + verb

why or how adverbial
