This KS2 English quiz will challenge you on similes. Similes are comparisons. “Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep," said the American poet, Carl Sandburg. 'Life is like an onion' is a simile. A more well-known simile is used when describing someone who is 'as wise as an owl'. You can recognise similes by the use of these phrases: 'as ... as' or 'like a...' Similes can be used to bring your writing to life.
Similes are similar to metaphors, so if you want to know the difference play our 'Metaphors' quiz in this KS2 English section to really get to grips with each of them!
