WALT: Create a word bank

We are going to build up to write a setting description of the scene of the young Viking first seeing the ship graveyard.

In this picture, there are three parts that we can describe in detail: the ships, the cliffs and the weather.

We can see the tall masts of the ships as they poke through the mist swirling around the jagged cliffs.  What other adjectives can you think of to describe each category?

Adjectives can describe an objects size, shape, colour, texture or age. Think about the genre of this animation. It is a tense, spooky tale and therefore our adjectives need to reflect this. For example, rather than describing it as a 'bright, misty morning' you could say it was a 'gloomy morning with sunlight struggling to pierce through the silver mist'. The adjective 'gloomy' and the verbs 'struggling' and 'pierce' tell the reader that is was not a good start to the day.

Here are some 'negative' adjectives to get you started. Can you use any of them to describe the ships, cliffs or weather?
