Setting Descriptions

Hi Year 4,

Lots of you have tried to write a setting description to go with one of the settings that you created out of Lego last week.  You need to imagine that you are in the setting and here are some things that you need to think about when you write a setting description.

What can you…

  • … hear?
  • … feel?
  • … see?
  • … smell?

You might also want to think about:

  • What the weather is like.
  • The time of day.
  • The time of year.

I hope that this helps everyone.  I have also included a setting description taken from ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.

“There was crisp, dry snow under his feet and more snow lying on the branches of the trees.  Overhead there was pale blue sky, the sort of sky one sees on a fine winter day in the morning. Straight ahead of him he saw between the tree-trunks the sun, just rising, very red and clear. Everything was perfectly still, as if he were the only living creature in that country. There was not even a robin or a squirrel among the trees, and the wood stretched as far as he could see in every direction.” (LWW page 35)
