Similes, personification and Metaphors

Today we explored our school to write our own similes and metaphors for our poems about schools. It was quite tricky at first but we had some brilliant ideas. We used our senses to describe

    Hello! We started to go round our school to look for things to make similes and metaphors for, I’ll give and example of a simile then a metaphor. (Not at school) ‘My DS was like double the size of a mouse’s body!’ ‘My tea spoons are 10 flys without wings’ you might go :S at metaphor if you were a child that never learnt it!!! (Most teachers obviously know it)

    I enjoyed It because I was able to make similes and metaphors of things in the school, I was in a group so more was on the paper. I was the first one to think of a metaphor when my group swaped with the other group that were in the class. But I let Zuzzana say it out load, my metaphor was, ‘Diplodocus’s tail was a mazzive rope’
