Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors. <br />
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors. <br />
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy! <br />
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted. <br />
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. <br />
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource! <br />

Go through the PowerPoint slide showing statements about Shakespeare. Students move to the left or right of the room depending on whether they think the statement is true or false. Once students have made their decision, click the mouse and show the answer. Use the Teacher's Notes to give students a little bit more information about the fact. This is an interactive starter activity that students really engage with.
