  • Hi
    The powerpoint doesn't seem to work properly on my PC. i can't seem to scroll between one slide and the next, also the font overlaps on top of others. I have tried other powerpoints and they work fine.

These slides aim to help your KS2 students understand the differences between metaphors and similes.
  • Similes are used to make direct comparisons between two things to create a more vivid description. They usually use the words 'as' or 'like' to make these comparisons. E.g. 'It was as cold as ice' or 'clever like a fox.'
  • Metaphors are also used for interesting descriptions but instead of making a comparison, we use one thing to symbolise another. E.g. 'The man was a roaring lion' or 'She was a sneaky snake with her friends.'
Use this PowerPoint to identify similes in a text, write new similes and metaphors (including extending them), and use the historical poem 'The Highwayman'. "
