Before we finished, we were taking inspiration from a range of books to write setting descriptions of volcanoes, mountains or storms. Maybe you could have a go at writing a setting description for another extreme environment? Or could you write a story based around your chosen environment?

Further Work

Ideas for what you could be writing:


  • A story from your own imagination

  • A letter to/from a character in your current story book
  • Anything else that takes your fancy!
