Similes and Metaphors - Which is Which?

Today's writing lesson was around learning the difference between similes and metaphors and using them to improve our  recounts. Here are some of the best.

 For your comment can you either name the person who you think did a great job as a writer or write the numbers of all the metaphor examples.

1. We were still looking. We didn’t give up. We were like Richie McCaw during a rugby tournament - Sweyde

2. We bumped into each other. We were elephants in a stampede - Rangimarie.


3. We could see all of the fish and turtles, they were as colorful as a rainbow. - Kaya


4. Whamo! I slipped over and slammed my head onto the ground. It was like atoms colliding together in nuclear fusion. My head exploded in pain! - Tim

5. I got up and walked quietly down the hall. I was a mouse, trying not to wake anyone up - Iverson.


6. I eat like a beast - Aryan


7. My eyes started to close, I was trying to keep them opened but I couldn’t. I was like a bat sleeping in it’s cave - Tristan



8. My dad said, “boy we're going to town and you are coming too, I shouted to dad, “Dad I don’t want to come to town, but I still had to go to town. I was a prisoner - Ricci

9. “Ok I’ll stay up as long as I can”  I said. My eyes were owl eyes - Heaven

  12. Hi my name is Poonam and I go to Owairaka primary school.I like sentence number 4, which was Tim's. He was the best writer because he wrote the longest sentence and he got all of his spelling right.
