Descriptive writing is a key skill needed for GCSE English Language. It's all about using words in the best arrangement to create vivid images in a reader's mind.

In this activity, we'll get to grips with the skills we need for developing our descriptive writing. We'll revise the features of descriptive writing and then plan and write an extended piece.

Here are some images below that may help you to imagine what the street looks like.
