Description

In 'Climbing My Grandfather', Andrew Waterhouse returns to childhood days with his granddad, a sturdy and dependable climbing companion.

In this lesson plan, students first learn the climbing jargon from the poem, then explore the poem's structure and metaphor, before ending with a writing exercise.

'Climbing My Grandfather' is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
