Setting Description & Travel Report 


Year 3 Vehicle Text: Return by Aaron Becker 


Setting Description


The children will learn about the concept of settings in stories. They will learn about the structures and features of descriptions in order to support writing about their own detailed setting. The language features we will focus on are:

  • Noun phrases
  • Prepositions and prepositional phrases to explain were objects are
  • Senses: sight, smell, hearing
  • Similes
  • Past tense
  • First person


Travel Report


The children will become travel writers and write their very own travel report based on the setting location they have created. This will involve:

  • Prepositional phrases
  • Effective word choice to create a specific effect
  • Alliteration
  • Deliberate phrases to give opinions
