The resources that I am sharing I have used successfully as a Primary Tutor to develop learning, understanding and confidence with individual students. They can also be used for group work. To keep my teaching skills sharp and to continue to develop my understanding of the curriculum, I also work as a Supply Teacher. Before becoming a Tutor I was a Senior Leader in a large Primary school holding the position of Assess Co-ordinator; I have also been a Year Leader and a SENCO.

I have used this activity to encourage the individual students that I tutor to use descriptive language in their writing.

Once the poem frame is completed the student selects the best similes and metaphors to create their own poem. The activity includes examples of similes and the corresponding metaphor.
