Pupils will however find that developing a full description bank of characters, emotions, action, the natural world and the built environment etc will help them to deliver effective and creative descriptions on the day. Using those description banks within these sample stories will help them to develop their work further and enable them to embed their thoughts so they can deliver properly on the day. Remember if you are going to tackle any of these sample writing topics and tasks you should always plan to revisit your work a few days after you have done it. As part of the process children who often re-write their work to improve it find they make better progress. Good resources to help with creative writing are rare.
