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.
