Exploring Settings.

In key stage 1 we have been learning how to improve our story writing.
One of the things we found difficult was describing settings. What better way to improve it than go to a setting and think about words we can use to describe it.
So we went along to the park on a wet, chilly , grey day and explored.  We thought about all our senses and used questions to help deepen our thinking and get more detail

We described the stream, we talked about how it sounded, what it felt like and where it could lead to.
