    Are you able to please add a poster for allusion in this pack. It is the one thing I am looking for in a pack and it seems to be missing. Thank you.

    These look great! Simple and to the point. I'll be using them in my year 8 classroom to reinforce skills my students need reminding of. Thanks, Donna

    Hi, this is a great resource, thank you! I would like to see more black children in the images - there is only one on the individual posters and it is the same image as exists in another resource I have just downloaded. I realise that you can't just change everything, but this is a real issue for me. Thank you!

    I love this complete set of figurative language posters. Most important for me is the clarity of the images and examples. Some posters can be too 'busy' and the message is lost within the design. Thank you, for yet another educationally enhancing product.
