'If you were a sailboat' and metaphor

Introduce children to metaphor in a sensory way through the song If you were a sailboat by Katie Melua. Play the song and then ask groups to create their own metaphorical poems and songs based on the same structure. Includes a PowerPoint to play alongside the song to illustrate the metaphors.
