Word Bank - Language Paper 1 (AQA): Creative/ Narrative/ Descriptive
I created this resource as I was struggling to find a word bank suitable for secondary school students, so this is suited for AQA Language Paper 1, Section B tasks, but could also be used across other phases and exam boards.

Prints A3 size so that all words are visible, the categories are divided into colour-coded sections for sensory language, setting, colour and characterisation. Within these sections there are lists of words that describe:

- Texture
- Taste/smell
- Sound
- Brightness/darkness
- Clarity / opacity
- Shape
- Speech
- Body movements
- Size: small/large
- Good weather/ bad weather
- Temperature: hot/cold
- Positive personality traits
- Negative personality traits
- Positive emotions
- Negative emotions
- Colour: black, brown, grey, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white
