Play the full video to children. Explain to them that they are going to write about the setting of the story. Where does it take place? What things do they immediately notice? Write down five things that stood out to them.
Focus on the rubbish tip rather than Esther’s tent. Ask children to recap the five senses (see, hear, smell, touch, taste) and how they can be used to write a setting description. Why is it important to use senses in setting description?

As an extension children to edit and improve their paragraph.
