This 5 minute video will give you a rich way in to exploring the idea of metaphor with your class.

David Horner (children's poet) will share with you one of his workshop ideas. The children will be asked to write about one of the most ordinary things in their lives - their bed. Somewhere they rarely think about, but somewhere they will spend more time than anywhere else.

The poem you are going to get the children to create is made up of a sequence of unrhymed couplets.
