Descriptive writing

 

Today, we would like you to have a go at writing a description of a setting.  This will give you a chance to practice using some of the writing rainbow lens that we have been using in class. 

Include at least 3 lens: adjectives, adverbs, personification, metaphors or similes to help describe what you can see and hear.

Here is an example of what you could write.  Try to change the words in red.

 

I can see the blue sea stretching away into the distance.  The waves surge angrily towards the cliff.  They crash into the dark rocks with a deafening noise.  Overhead, a seagull hovers in the wind.
