GCSE Description: A Moment

Posted on


trampoline 1S

What is happening in this moment?

Write a description for the picture which includes:

The setting

What the person is thinking and feeling

What the audience is doing

What is likely to happen next

You can include your own ideas and also describe the scenes not shown in the picture. For instance, are there TV cameras filming the event? 

Don't forget to use lots of descriptive phrases to capture the atmosphere of the event, the sights, the sounds, the feeling you have when something exciting is about to happen.

This activity is great practice for the English Language exam. You could try writing it as a story to see how differently it might turn out.
