Literacy: Creating a 'Setting'

 

Information below taken from:

The setting is the place and time your story is 'set'. Letting your readers know where and when your story is set will help bring the story to life. If the setting is somewhere your readers aren't familiar with then make sure you describe it in detail.

 

Two stories can be set in exactly the same place, but feel completely different because of the words the writer chooses to use.

 

Every story needs a setting.

After half term we are going to write our own adventure stories so we have been thinking about our own setting.

 

We each recorded our own ideas for our setting and then drew our setting. Here are a few examples:
