WALT: Write similes and descriptive phrases 

Read the poem, The Eagle by Alfred Tennyson.What do you think Tennyson is talking about when he says ‘crooked hands’?

Sometimes poems are a bit like puzzles. We have to work out what they mean.

Tennyson uses similes in his poem. Similes are a type of figurative language. They are used to describe things, by comparing them to something else. Similes may use ‘like’ or ‘as’ to compare two things. Similes make our descriptions more interesting for reader. Example: His eyes were as black as coal.

Complete similes about the eagle and write as many words and phrases to describe the eagle as you can think of.
