This activity can be done in class or set as homework. It was inspired by 'Skellig' and a good opening idea is to show the students David Almind's opening description of the garage. However, it works fine as an independent task. Students have to imagine they are Michael, the lonely and isolated boy described walking through the family's old garage at the start of the novel. The task develops language range ad descriptive skills. Suitable for junior ages and also as extension work for those taking entrance or end of year exams. Could also work well for AQA GCSE students ending to perfect their descriptive skills.
