Year 3 Dahl – Short Burst Writing

This week we have been learning how to create atmosphere and describe a setting through the use of senses. We have read lots of different extracts and generated some fabulous word banks which helped us to write a setting description today, where we focussed on using adjectives, prepositions and reference to different senses. Using a picture of a setting as stimulus, the children independently wrote some fantastic setting descriptions based on what could be seen, as well as what might be heard or smelt if you were to walk through or visit that setting. We hope you enjoy some of our examples below.


Keep up the good work Dahl!

Mr Howley
