The guess-who-my poem-is-about competition really worked. But it wasn't till later in the day that I realised that this is the best way I know to get across the concept (and practice) of metaphor. Once we started talking about it, Ian burst out with the most amazing little verse. While we were working on the guess-who competition Danielle got very frustrated and ripped up the paper she was writing on and threw it into the bin. Ian's response said it all.
