Metaphor Flashcards | KS2 Poetry & Writing Composition | Primary English

Metaphor Flashcards

These metaphor flashcards display detailed examples of this form of figurative language. Each flashcard contains a metaphor, accompanied by an illustration and a secondary picture of the word or expression referring to something different from the literal definition. With a title/introduction page, there are twelve exciting metaphors for your class to explore.

These metaphor flashcards will inspire children as they create their own metaphors or incorporate existing ones, fostering creativity and expression in their writing tasks. Analysing metaphors encourages children to think critically about language and meaning which will build a deeper understanding of their literacy skills.

Our metaphor flashcards are aligned with KS2 poetry and writing composition on the primary national curriculum. This primary resource can be used with your ideas for activities involving poems and playwriting, display boards, games, teaching material, learning aids, differentiation, homework, and lesson plans.
