Figuarative language uses an ordinary sentence to refer to something without directly stating it. Words and ideas are used to create mental images and suggest meaning.
At West London Tutoring we use a number of different ways to teach children how to recognise and use figurative language in KS2 English. We use definitions and examples of simile, hyperbole, alliteration, metaphor, personification, onomatopoeia and openers.
Here we will share with you some free resources to help your child undertand better.
