English writing lesson. Here is another example of a piece of writing that describes a setting. Read it carefully or read along with an adult. Compare it to yesterday's writing. Then look at the pictures below the writing. Choose one that you like. Write your own description of it's setting, thinking about what you could see, hear and touch if you were there. Use adjectives, similes and metaphors in your writing.
