Related video-poem (short and fun) – The Wind:

Action/sound words plus similes are called for here to evoke a stormy – but perhaps exhilarating – scene. There could be humour too: is the wind blowing pyjama trousers off the washing-line and over the fence? There could be a magical beauty: a rising rainbow or a gleam of light from under a cloud. There’s scope for onomatopoeia too: the wind could be roaring, whimpering, booming, whining, whistling; the rain – drumming, pummelling, plopping, splashing, glugging. Similes are fun to think up, and the example sheet will help. Recommended for Juniors (KS2).
