For today’s lesson you are going to need a piece of paper – about ½ A4. Fold it in half 4 times so that you get 16 small rectangles.

Today we are going to have a go at writing poems using metaphors and similes.

First turn off the volume on your computer! Then watch the video without the poem.  In each box write an adjective to describe the images in the video. Now spend some time improving your adjectives try using an online Thesaurus.

Now I want you to improve each of your adjectives to make a simile or metaphor e.g. as dark as night , razor sharp icicles. Try and expand your descriptions to make expanded noun phrases.

Now you are going to use these to make a poem. Watch the video clip where I show you how I would edit a group of phrases to make an effective poem.

You can see an example of a poem in the link. Send me a copy of your poem, or you might want to record it and send it to me!
