My Castle (Yrs 1-2)

This free picture poem frame brings writing alive for young children, also bringing meaning to castle topic work. The atmospherically illustrated frame invites describing words and two similes for a castle according to the writer’s imagination.

It could be a fairytale castle - pink, glowing and magical, or a haunted one - spooky, dark and creepy. It might be realistically described - damp, cold, stony and grey, perhaps.

The similes will fire ideas for more adventurous writing: as spooky as… and as (blank) as…, with possibilities wide open.
