Mr O’Sullivan and Mrs Otto would like to share some of your fantastic writing from your story based on Cosmic.

Effective sentences and similes

Guy was a tall boy.

I took a simple sentence and extended it, then used a simile to finish it off!

With long legs and very big feet, Guy was a wiry boy. He was as tall as a giraffe.

 

Create a simple sentence and then improve  it using extended noun phrases. Then add  your simile if you can.  Mr L will add a clip art image later.
