Poems that create images - Similes & Metaphors -  Year 4 to 6 - October 2019 UPDATE

A bumper set of resources initially used in the Year 4 topic of:
Creating Images with Poetry, Similes and Metaphors.

Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful ‘Outstanding’ observation lesson by Ofsted involving describing a beach setting with similes and metaphors.
I recently adapted this in this for a year 6 class I taught and we produced some fantastic work.

There is also quite a few poems I have written using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop.
(Due to a few comments I have added additional resources as well.)
