Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors.
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors.
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy!
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted.
Also a bank of poems that I developed 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 recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource!
AUGUST UPDATE: Even more resources added and price reduction to celebrate over 100 downloads of this resource.
Differentiated lesson materials aimed at a class of students ranging from A-D grades.

Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt is an amazing novel about a middle school girl who feels that she somehow can't fit in.
Her new teacher, Mr. Daniels, finally uncovers the full extent of Ally’s problem.
Students will recap the main setting, main character, plot, themes and complete some vocabulary activities.
Albert Einstein's quote will be analyzed by the students as well.
Students will have the opportunity to redesign the book cover, ask questions about dyslexia and summarize the main character and book using the acrostic templates, "Ally Nickerson" and "Fish in a Tree".
