LO: I can use similes to create an image
Warm Up: generate a list of/brainstorm signs of autumn, e.g. conkers, pumpkins, etc.
Using each of the items you thought of in your warm up, create a simile where you compare each to something else using ‘like’ or ‘as’, for example:
The wind as cold as an ice-cream,
Conkers as shiny as glass,
Squirrels dashing around like racing cars.
Then, on a new sheet of paper, write the title ‘Autumn’ and create an autumn poem by listing the similes you generated.
