Hi children!smiley


I hope you got on ok with the poetry work yesterday. Thank you to all of you who sent me photos – I’ll email you back as soon as I can.



1. Look carefully at the spellings you have written on your spelling grid. Mark each spelling carefully like we do in class. Use a green pen if you have one.

2. Practise your spellings from last week and ask your helper to test you on them. You can just do this on paper

3. Do any corrections for words you got wrong.


There won’t be any spellings to learn next week as it’s half-term – yay! laugh


Guided Reading


LO: To know what metaphors are and why they are used

Metaphors are also used to help describe things. We found out yesterday that similes contain the words like or as. Metaphors are when the noun becomes the compared object like:

  • It’s raining cats and dogs (this means it’s raining heavily)
  • That child is an angel! (the child is very well-behaved and hard-working)


1. Have a look at the word mat to find more examples to help you get the hang of metaphors.

Metaphor examples

2. Now watch this fun video which helps you remember the differences between metaphors and similes.

"Similes and Metaphors" by The Bazillions

Simile Girl and Metaphor Man are here to save the day! These heroes make learning your similes and metaphors as easy as pie.

3. In the poetry booklet find the poem “Rainbows”. This poem includes lots of metaphors. On plain paper draw and label the metaphors in the poem e.g. a multi-coloured bridge spanning the streets of town.


Read the poetry booklet/your school reading book out loud for 15 minutes to an adult today and ask your adult to sign your link book.


AND a joke to finish on...


Which famous Roman suffered from hayfever? Julius Sneezer!


Please send a photo of your work to me at


Enjoy the rest of the afternoon children! smiley
