A simile is a way of describing something by comparing it to something else using the word ‘like’ or ‘as’. We had a brief look at this earlier in the year. Similes are often used in descriptive writing or poems.
Have a go at writing some Stone Age similes and decorate with illustrations. An example could be: The Woolly Mammoth’s tusk was as sharp as a knife or the cave paintings were like a story. You can include some anachronisms if you like.
Here are some Stone Age activities you could to try. There is a word search – you could make up your own afterwards. A recipe that could be made if you have the ingredients. Or a Woolly Mammoth model – you could try and make your own if you feel brave! Have fun and enjoy the bank holiday weekend. Mr Faithfull and Miss Taylor
