Supporting descriptive writing: activity ideas from the Descriptosaurus
The Descriptosaurus Writing Challenge provides a great opportunity for encouraging your pupils to expand and experiment with descriptive language in order to develop their ability to add more depth and colour to their writing.
In this resource we provide you with lots of activities for incorporating the competition into teaching and learning, including ideas for warm up games, extension activities and planning tips and templates.
This resource is adapted from Descriptosaurus (2nd edition), by Alison Wilcox.
