Writing to Describe: A Street Scene

In this worksheet, students revise some of the features of descriptive writing then plan and write a description of a street under exam conditions.

Worksheet Overview

This activity is designed to help prepare you for the descriptive writing you will be asked to do for your GCSE. You will revise the features of descriptive writing then plan and write an extended piece.

 

 

You are going to produce a piece of writing that describes a street. You can decide whether it is a busy street in the daytime or an empty street at night. Look at these images of streets to help you:

 

                  Dark alleyway with stone walls                  Busy street with crowds of people walking

 

                  Foggy road at night with cars parked at the side                    Outside an office building with people wearing suits
