PDF KS2 lesson plan
Eating out was once seen as an exclusive event for special occasions. Nowadays, however, casual dining has become the norm.
But with so many restaurants to choose from and so many dishes on offer, how do we even begin to make a choice about where and what to eat?
Looking at how restaurants describe their dishes is the perfect way to show children the effect that descriptive words can have.
In this plan, pupils will write a menu fit for a monster – lumpy eyeball soup, anyone?

- Identify how adjectives can help us to describe things
- Discover how some adjectives have a stronger effect than others
