Use this poster to guide your students through writing a piece of descriptive text.
The poster includes information on what should be in a piece of descriptive writing and an example piece of text.
* A descriptive text uses senses such as sight, touch and sound to give the reader a mental image of an object or event.
* Use descriptive language - be specific and use adjectives.
* Provide sensory details:
Smells - aromas in the air
Sounds - what would the reader be able to hear?
Sights - What can you see - colours, shapes, sizes etc?
Touch - What does the object feel like?
Taste - describe its taste.
