Creature Discovery Descriptive Writing 

Our wonderful text, the Water Horse, is all about the discovery of a magical creature. We used this as a stimulus for making up our own creature discovery. First we drew our ideas, then we labelled them with expanded noun similes and prepositional phrases.

We then used our pictures and notes to write a description of our creature. We discussed how a good description will enable our reader to picture our creature their heads. To test how good our descriptions were, we read them to a partner who had to draw what we described. We then compared our image to theirs to see how similar they were. It was great fun and we were amazed at how useful it was as a way of testing the quality of our writing. After the exercise, we then edited our writing to make improvements.
