The Tin Forest by Helen Ward

Descriptive Writing - The Tin Forest


We have been focusing on setting descriptions this term whilst reading our class text, The Tin Forest. For today's task can you describe the setting at the start of the story. To remind you of the story, I have included a video of the book (above) and a copy of the story (below). Once you have recapped over the story, focus on the rainy junkyard scene at the start of the story (picture included in the template below). Write a descriptive paragraph about the setting.


Remember to include:


  • Powerful adjectives
  • Prepositions
  • Similes 



I have also included a word mat below to help with your spellings. Once you have completed the SPaG task and this written task, send your work in via Microsoft Teams.
