KS3 English Lesson Plan – Approach A Descriptive Writing Task In A Novel Way

Key Stage



Years 7-9


If students are to become mature and confident writers, they need to be willing to take risks, to experiment with language and syntax. Often, students will go for the safe and the obvious, rather than what they are actually imagining, because they have a fear of failure.

This lesson is designed to approach a standard descriptive writing task in an unusual and novel way that will engage all students. Sometimes, capturing ideas through a fun activity – rather than getting hung up on the technicalities of writing – is important, so that all students feel they can succeed.
