What makes a great setting description?

Today it was a pleasure to teach English to both my Crew and Crew Faulding. In groups, the children read through a model text of a setting description which was taken from our new Class text. They then identified the features that had been included and spoke about the purpose of each feature.

I was so impressed with all the children’s knowledge as well as their collaborative skills and how kind and helpful they were to each other! I can’t wait to see lots of great writing features in our extended write on Monday!
