Hi All, I have an observation next week and I am thinking of doing some descriptive writing as writing is a big focus area for our school at the moment! We have been reading Kensuke's Kingdom and i was thinking of stealing an idea from the Read and Respond book - getting the children to write a descriptive piece on the forest. For those who don't know the story - the main character (a young boy) is stranded on an island and there is a scene where he's in the forest on his own... thought it would lend well to descriptive writing. I was wondering if anybody had a video clip or anything else i could use as a stimulus for descriptive writing on a forest. Also, any ideas on how i could differentiate this? Many thanks!
