    Using this as a starter. Children generate as many ideas to complete the well known metaphor as they can in 1 minute. Compare to the original.

    I'm intending to use it as a starter activity. Hopefully. If all goes according to plan.

    Starter activity - I've put it as 3 stars as it wouldn't let me comment without a star and I haven't used it yet. it might be good, it might be terrible, Twinkle could do with changing their comment prompt.

    I use this resource as a starter with KS3 English (future Entry Level) and they love it! Majority of them attempt to use the metaphors during the week and then come back to me to tell me how and when..good to see them remember and in correct context! :)
