Poems that create images - Similes / Metaphors - March '17 UPDATE

Poems that create images - Similes / Metaphors - March '17 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 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 took. 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. I have continually updated this resource due to its popularity and quality. Please check my other resources out here... https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/dave_orritt
