Use The Highwayman text from last week.
Read through the poem and look for any figurative language (similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia or personification). Underline these in different colours, and make a key to show which colour is which.
Here's a reminder of figurative language:
Simile - compares 2 things using like or as
- her smile was like sunshine; he ran as fast as the wind
Metaphor - compares 2 things by saying it is/was/are that thing
- the moon is a twinkling diamond; the snow was a blanket laying on the ground
Personification - gives something that isn't human the characteristics of a person
- the rain cried down the window; clouds danced across the sky
Onomatopoeia - words that sound like the noise they are making]
- crash, buzz, drip, plop
