Provide images (photos and/or film) of different views over mountains and hills (including some Welsh hills, if possible), different weather conditions and seasons. Have ready images of other landscapes to provide a stimulus for the children’s own poems – eg, cliffs, coastlines, Giant’s Causeway, field of flowers, sand dunes.
