Today we will be thinking about writing descriptive words and phrases.
Firstly, on a whiteboard / piece of paper have a go at brainstorming a range of descriptive words and phrases that come to mind when you examine one of the pictures below.
Now, try using your collected words and phrases to write a setting description to describe your chosen scene. Try to transport the reader to the scene with your writing, and think about your senses. Here are some examples of words and phrases to help you with the first picture of the sunset:
horizon, twilight, rich hues of red blended with orange, beautiful, sepia tones, horizon, fiery, dusk, skyburst, symphony of colour, effervescent, sparkling, fading skies, sky lit up in fiery rays, gloaming, glowing.
You might want to publish your setting description using the 2Do on Purple Mash, or on paper.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
