Figurative Language

Well Class 3/4 you have been doing an amazing job of writing using figurative language devices such as puns, spoonerisms, similes and metaphors.

Your task this week is to:

1. Type your draft story as a final piece of writing.

2. Incorporate teacher corrections.

3. Self-edit your work by checking for the following:

– paragraphs

Good luck and have fun.

  1. Mission M.T

    Mission M.T was going to be a hard mission. It was very complex.

    One second later… BOOM BOOM BOOM BANG BANG BANG the sound of bombsand guns were going off. ” Oh thats’ my alarm going off telling me to get up for school.”

    What I had to do for Mission M.T was to get somelunch order slips so I could write them at home. Very serious work.

    So I got on the school bus and went to school. I went into the teachers’ office and got a big handful until the teacher caught me stealing. It wasn’t my class. The teacher didn’t knoe my name. I ran as fast as I could and went home for the rest of the day.

    Then I moved school. I had to leave all of my friends but I completed Mission M.T. That was the good thing. I still had the slips to write my lunch order on but when I got to my new schoolwe didn’t have lunch orders. SO MISSION M.T WAS A WASTE OF TIME! The End

    One day there was a girl called charlotte.She was on an adventure to find special people. She had a friend and his name was Fredrick. He was as skinny as a bean. But he was just a friend and when I say friend I mean FRIEND.

    Another day later he went down the black steep hole in south Africa, when he hit the ground he had a lot of injuries. He was stuck down the hole for one week and a half. He had no food, no water or anything.

    When he finally got help out of the hole he had to go to hospital and got all his injuries fixed. He had to go and do all his therapy and he never fell down a steep hole again.



    I set sail for the sea with my sixteen ships, missing everything I had at home. We came to a storm, but it was no normal storm, it was a lightning storm! Twelve of our ships burnt in the fire, drowning two men. Two of us lived.

    We came to a cave full of glow worm poo. There was no way out, but there was. One was up. Eveything was downhill from here. We just needed to go up a cave with two men. It was like a thirty story high buliding and we only had two men.

  7. Jazmyn’s Adventure. Hope you like it!

    One day I met a girl as bright as the sun. As we were walking I thought about metaphors and similes to myself. It was 7.30pm so I had to go to bed because I had school tomorrow so I went to sleep.

    I woke up and got ready for school and I went to school. We were looking at metphors and similes. I came up with a few: ‘as bright as the sun’, ‘she has a heart like a lion. School had just finished so I went back home but I had forgotten where I lived so I pulled out my map and I had a look. I live in Queensland.

  8. It all started on the twenty third of April in the year 2008. It was a quest to find pet fox Sly. He was called Sly because ha was so sly you could not feel him get on your shoulder. He was red with a white tail and black ear.

    When I lost Sly he was as sick as a dog. We found Sly high up in a tree because of how noisy he was. The neighbours were begging me to get rid of Sly and when Sly ran away they gave me $100,000 but I still prefer Sly even if they give me $1,000,000.


  9. A long time ago, not that long, there was a girl like lightning.Her name was Georgia, she could sail the islands in one whole year.She could shoot her bow with her trusty steed all over the lands all day and night.Her yrusty steed was a stallion black as midnight, like a shadow.

    One day Georgia found a dark mysterious cave in a dark forest.So she went in, but it was a trap.The rope tied her by the legs and threw her in a bowl with cold water not boiled yet.

    After she got throwen in the tub, she tried to get out.Then she heard a “thud thud thud thud thud”. She stopped struggling and screaming.Then something opened the lid. It was a big, fat ugly troll. “Well, well, well my lunch has come then.” Georgia said “I don’t think so” and shot him with an arrow. She got out and ran away. The troll screamed and chased her and when she lost him she climbed a tree and went to sleep. She started to dream about home so she made a new boat. She heard a thing or someone say “I’m going to get you now” so she tried to build faster. She got the boat ready and she sailed away. Five months later she got home and lived happily ever after. The End

  11. Hi everyone

    It’s Squid here! I just wanted to post my writing.

    Once upon a time there was a kitten. It was a giant rainbow kitten. It was as cute as a button. Many people always thought it would scatch their eyes out and the kitten was sad because of that. One day the kitten came into the peoples’ town and ruined their houses. All the people were pleading with the giant rainbow kitten to stop but it didn’t. Instead it just put the people on it’s claws like kebabs, then ate them.

    This naughty kitten made a bad choice when it went into the town and ate the people. It got poisoned and if you were wondering how it got poisoned this is how.

    When it ate the people it didn’t realise that one of them was carrying illegal poison. The poison kills very slowly, it’s already been 1 week. It would be surprising if it even lasts another week. The poison makes you stop eating. Some of the R.S.P.C.A people felt sorry for the kitten and helped it get better. One of the vets said “Aw, it’s as sick as a dog”. After a whole month the kitten got better. The only bad thing was that a big dog bit the giant rainbow kitten and it got tetanus (lock jaw). They couldn’t save the kitten and it died!
    The End, or is it?! No it is.


  12. Danni’s Odyssey

    One day I met a girl, she was as slow as a snail. I had a best friend called Brandon, who was as fast as a Ferrari and then there’s me and I am as thin as a pin and as chirpy as a chicken.

    We all decided we were going to go on a great Odyssey. We booked a boat and we packed our stuff. A week later it was time time to go “Oh well it’s my Odyssey, actually it’s our Odyssey”.

    We set off. All was fine but something happened. A tornado hit us; the seas became rough. I tried to save us but the girl fell out and Brandon and I where stuck on an island and all we were hoping for was a way home and for the girl to be safe.

    Brandon started gathering foods and i started gathering wood. I built a fire and Brandon and I started to build a shelter. I cooked us a meal and the next day we set out to find the girl.

    We looked high and low but no sign of her. she was gone just like that…
