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.
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource!
A fun and interactive lesson teaching students how to use similes and metaphors. Whiteboard games, writing tasks and quick fire questions ensure your students understand how to use a simile and a metaphor, and why they are important. A useful one off lesson to ensure key skills are understood and secure. A writing task and differentiated levels are present throughout lesson.
