English - poetry
This week we have been looking at a range of poetry that uses figurative language.
These are just some of the things your child should be able to talk about:
Metaphor - e.g. Heart of stone.
Personification - e.g. The leaves danced on the trees
Onomatopoeia - e.g. Crash! Splash! Boom!
Alliteration- e.g. Evil eagles eat eels
Simile - e.g. Busy as a bee
Idiom - e.g. time flies
Hyperbole - e.g. For the millionth time, be quiet!
How about you develop some of your own as a family? If you think of any good ones bring them into to school. That would be AWEsome .
