    I'd build up a bit more to the writing. If they can write a decent setting description on Monday there is little point in teaching it for the rest of the week.

    Maybe do lots of oral descriptions of various scenes and setting on Monday, adding adjective labels and the like on Tuesday, some work on similes and metaphors on Wednesday, writing on Thursday, editing and improving on Friday?

    Have you thought about using something like the Myst game to inspire?
    You don't have to have the game - there are lots of clips on youtube.
    For more info watch this clip:

    There's quite a bit out there that you could use. I posted some links a while ago for someone in this thread:
    https://community.tes.co.uk/forums/t/468634.aspx?PageIndex=1#6506190
    But there's a lot in the resources section here:

    Might be something a bit different! [​IMG]
     
  4. We used the teachers TV adventure story start video for guided writing and they loved it:
