Another fantastic world cloud was created yesterday. Well done everybody, these are amazing!
We are continuing to explore how poets use descriptive language to deepen the readers understanding of their work. Often, appealing to all of the readers senses.
Today, we are going to think about how poets use similes and personification.
A simile is when two things are compared using like or as e.g. as tall as a giraffe.
Personification is when you give human characteristics to an object e.g. the leaves danced across the lawn.
A great example of the use of simile's is Michael Rosen's poem "JellyFish". Watch the poet perform his poem and listen for the similes! The link is here: Michael Rosen Jellyfish on Vimeo
Read and listen to John Lyon’s poem “Natural Dancing Partners”. The link is here: John Lyons - Natural Dancing Partners - YouTube
1) Underline or make a list of the lines in the poem where the poet has used personification.
2) Why do you think the poet has made the link between willow trees and dancers?
3) Describe three different objects using personification.
