Simile Flashcards | KS2 Poetry & Writing Composition | Primary English

Similes Flashcards

These simile flashcards show detailed examples of this form of figurative language. Each flashcard contains a simile, accompanied by an illustration and a secondary picture of the word or expression showing the comparison of one thing with another thing. With a title/introduction page, there are twelve exciting similes for your class to discover and explore.

These simile flashcards will help children draw parallels between everyday experiences and abstract concepts, making complex ideas more relatable and accessible to pupils by connecting them to familiar situations. Learning similes encourages children to use descriptive language effectively, enriching their writing and communication skills by adding vivid imagery to their writing.

Our simile 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.
