Story starter!

This was their favourite time of day to fly.

As the glowing, crimson sun dipped down below the vast horizon, retreating to allow night to take its place, the dragons took flight.

The sky looked beautiful: wisps of pillow-like clouds seemed to part in front of them as they flexed their powerful wings. Like sails from ancient ships, the wings beat in the dying embers of the sun’s fire, embracing what little warmth remained. Thousands of tiny scales that covered the beasts’ bodies glistened like rubies in the dazzling light.

Sentence challenge!

A simile is a way of describing something by comparing it to something else, often using the word "like" or "as."

Can you identify all of the similes in my writing?

Can you think of your own similes to use in your writing?

You could experiment using metaphors, or even personification to make your writing really exciting to read!

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?
