Best thing to do is focus on a good corrie answer to start with and tweak this to explain how a pyramidal peak is formed.
Essentially a pyramidal peak is formed when 3 or more corries form back to back. The peak in the middle develops as a result of frost shattering.
I will re-post some information on formation of a corrie and answering glaciation questions in general.
Good luck tomorrow!

its basically three or more corries formed back to back,
so describe a corrie as normal then at the end say
" a pyrimaidal peak is fromed when three or more of these corries form with there backs to each other"

it's formed when corries erode backwards around a peak.
