Wonderful Setting Descriptions

The children have hard at work today with their second ‘Big Write’. Their task this time was to write a setting description and we’ve got some fantastic pieces. Here are a few snippets…

‘ A large tree with moss suffocating its trunk stands in front of me. The cold, calm water flows gracefully over the rocks, fallen leaves being carried along…’


‘ Happily relaxing, a small shrew scurries through the dense undergrowth, leaves crackling as it goes. A magnificently coloured humming bird swoops gracefully over the clear water in the stream, humming peacefully to itself.’


‘I can hear birdsong in the trees, yet I see nothing. Sounds that I have never heard before fill the air… The humid air is closing in on me as beads of sweat run down my face.’
