Max’s Journey


This week in English the Year 3 children have been improving their descriptive writing by using adjectives. The children collaborated to produce a short paragraph full of description about Max the Hedgehog’s journey down the street. (We have been reading the Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith).

What is good about this piece? What could be improved? Which adjectives impress you the most? Have a read and comment below…

The brave hedgehog took his first step on the grim and terrifying pavement. The cold battered streets were damp and dirty which made the poor, defenceless hedgehog shiver. Nervously, the worried hedgehog strolled tensely along the dark, gloomy street.
