Added 11 Aug 2017

Encourage your pupils to expand and experiment with descriptive language using the Descriptosaurus books as inspiration. Pupils are motivated to create their own piece of descriptive writing set in a particular period of time – past, present or future.

The teaching resource is suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils and features lots of ideas for incorporating the task into class time. There’s also a poster outlining the challenge which could be displayed in the classroom. 

These resources were created in partnership with Routledge for a competition we ran in spring 2017.
