Explore the use of metaphors with pupils using the activities in this resource pack, allowing them to investigate the use of figurative language, in this case metaphors, to describe a city landscape.

Metaphors are often used in poetry and narratives for effect to add description and create a vivid image for the reader by describing something as something else.
Pupils can use the image cards to create metaphors to describe a city. Sentence and phrase cards containing metaphors are also included to provide modelled examples for the pupils.
