Descriptive writing - Boy by Roald Dahl
This is a lesson used with bottom set year 7 who require a lot of help and scaffolding. Based on the section in Boy by Roald Dahl, towards the start, in which he describes his school. Pupils read the section and then answer some comprehension questions, followed by planning and writing a description. Attached also is the writing frame I used to support the pupils in their planning.
