The children used their descriptive writing skills in this lesson to draw and describe their very own cowboy / cowgirl. We began the lesson by discussing what a cowboy / cowgirl was and looked at some images. The children discussed some common features. We then looked at the success criteria for our descriptive writing and brainstormed some good adjectives, adverbs, similes and metaphors. Finally, we looked at an example of some descriptive writing and picked out things that worked well and things we would improve. The children then drew and described their very own cowboy / cowgirl which they shared with the rest of the class at the end of the lesson.
