Simile Magic!!!

To make a story or a poem more interesting, a writer often tries to use words to create a picture inside the reader’s head.

A simile is when you say that something – a person or place, animal or thing – is LIKE something else. A simile always uses the word ‘as’ or ‘like’.

Here are some examples of similes:

  1. The cheese on this pizza is as hot as lava!
  2. Andrew is as sly as a fox.
  3. The girl’s laugh is as pretty as bird song.
  4. Sleeping on my bed is like floating on a cloud.
  5. He went off like a rocket on his new bike.

Now can you make up your own simile?


“Quick as a cheetah” (Ave)

“Slow as a snail” (Amy)

“Small as an ant” (Huy)

“Large as a boulder” (Kuini)

“Happy as the happy face emoji” (Vanessa)

“Sad as a cloud of rain” (Viti)



Gardening Time!

For the past few weeks Room 1 have been working really hard to take care of their plants. They planted a broad bean seed with care and everyday make sure they are watered so that photosynthesis can take place. Everyday is an exciting new discovery as students measure their plants to observe and investigate their own plants progress. It’s a race to see who’s plant grows the highest or who’s plant produces the first broad bean. Hmmm….I wonder who will win…Viti or Aaron? Stay tuned…..

Day 1….It all begins…..


Day 18….Look how much they’ve grown!


Some very happy faces………:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
