They smell a bit like mushrooms, their tough and hard. Bracket fungi give lots of support to spiders, Puriri moth caterpillars, wetas and other living things.

Simile and Metaphor

Similes and Metaphors

A simile is where two things are directly compared because they share a common feature. The word AS or LIKE is used to compare the two words. Eg. As cold AS a dog's nose
A metaphor also compares two things, but it does so more directly WITHOUT using as or like. Eg. The shop was a little gold-mine.
Task One
At the end of the sentence, write in brackets whether the sentence is an example of a metaphor or simile.
Eg. The clouds were fluffy like cotton wool. (SIMILE)

  1. As slippery as an eel. (SIMILE) ✔
  2. Arnie was a man-mountain. (METAPHOR) ✔

  6. The torch lit up the room as if the sun had risen early.(SIMILE) ✔
  7. The moon was a misty shadow.(METAPHOR) ✔
  8. My friend has a face like a bag of spanners.(SIMILE)

On Friday I went to Polyfest to see my sisters Lavinia and Rita perform. We left at 7:30am so when we got there it wasn’t packed with people. We had to walk for half an hour because there were no parking spaces, so we parked outside of the diary.

When we got there, there were no chairs but luckily we brought a mat and chairs so we could sit down. It was very, very hot, I grabbed the umbrella and used it for shelter. We were waiting for a long time and we had to wait until it was 11:40am. It was a great performance when they were using the sticks, they weren’t standing on stage they were outside on the concrete, me and my other sister was taking pictures i was happy for them.

After the performance we had a break. We all went to get some food and ice-cream and after our break we had to go sit back down.

We had to waited again for the next performance from Auckland Girls Grammar school. It was so boring waiting,  the other performances were all right. We had to wait, wait and wait, I was so bored.

Finally they said “give around of applause for Auckland Girls Grammar School” they were so cool my mum was very very happy, she was singing what they were saying we were proud of them. After their performance we came back home we didn’t know who won they were going to tell us who won the next day, I had lots of fun at the polyfest.
