This can be used to help children think specifically about each sense in relation to a train journey. This was used alongside 'The Train Ride' by June Crebbin but could easily be alongside any other train poetry text.
This is an Olympics themed book which could be used to learn about a certain country in the run up to the Olympics. My class are looking at Canada, but this could easily be adapted to suit any country.
This is just page 1. More pages will follow.

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 power point presentation based on annotating and comparing two ballads, La Belle Dame Sans Merci and The Lady of Shallott. Poems also provided for ease of reference and printing. This is a useful and challenging introduction to analysing poetry for Key Stage 3 pupils. Pupils will become familiar with literary terminology and grow confident in applying it to techniques which they encounter when reading unseen texts. There is a strong emphasis on essay-writing structure to provide a good basis for GCSE work.
