Descriptive writing: Slow write

In this lesson, we will start with an initial quiz. We’ll then be drawing together ideas from across the week in a ‘slow write’ exercise where we'll work through an image together, thinking about how to start our response, zoom in on detail and then develop a ‘Big Picture’ perspective in our writing. At the end of the lesson, you will have a learning recap quiz to review our work from the week.

This quiz includes images that don't have any alt text - please contact your teacher who should be able to help you with an audio description.
