Start by watching the below power point which will explain to you and your grown ups what a simile is. This power point uses the word 'as' within the sentence.
Have a look at the sentences below. Can you re write them with the word that best finishes the simile?
The boy was as fast as a cheetah/snail.
The girl’s hair was as soft as stones/wool.
The baby was as quiet as a firework/mouse.
The lights shined as bright as the sun/cave.
The man was as big as an ant/elephant.
Once you have done this see if you can complete these similes with your own word.
The bird flew as high as _______________.
The fire was as hot as _________________.
The baby giggled as ____________ as ________________.
If you fancy an extra challenge find something around your house and write 5 similes using 'as' that describe the item. If you email the similes in we will try and guess what you are describing.
