I wrote a paragraph demonstrating what stage their work was currently at (just describing what they could see) and a paragraph which included descriptions of other senses. This fuelled the children's imaginations and all produced fantastic descriptions of all senses on their fictional planet.
I reinforced the idea that a book is different from a film as we cannot hear the setting - only through the author's descriptions of all sense are we able to fully imagine what that fictional place is like.
I used many techniques, such as similes and personification, which the children highlighted on the smart board to model and reinforce the different techniques they should also be using.
I hope this helps boost creative writing skills in your class too! Reviews are greatly appreciated so please let me know how you found this resource.
