Setting the scene in a story gives the story a sense of realism – that it is happening in a real or imagined place. It means that the author must create “word pictures” so that the reader can visualise the setting in their mind. It is important to give pupils strategies to encourage them to set the scene in a story and help to make their story more descriptive. This presentation encourages pupils to use the senses to describe the setting of the story.
