Main activity

Read the WAGOLLS below of setting descriptions, if there is no picture with it, can you picture it in your head? If you can, you know it’s a good setting description! Once you've read the WAGOLLS you are set to plan your own setting description for the image you've been looking at all week.

 

 

 

Use the planning sheet attached at the bottom. 

 

WAGOLL 1:

 

As the multiple moons exchanged places with the sun in the now azure sky, a misty haze began to form under the canopy of swaying, rugged trees. What was this place? Why was it so eye catching? Curling around thick spiraling branches were constricting vines, which braced and creaked. Dangling down from the layer of moss, vast, bold leaves flickered like church candle flames in breeze. Sweet scented pollen drifted through the archways created by the curving branches which created halos of light above and below.

However, the most delightful sight was the strange, exotic, unfamiliar plants which glowed bright neon colours. Sapphire, ruby and emerald pierced the sometimes dull surroundings - filling it with a song of life and colour. In addition, these supernatural forms danced and twisted as though keeping in time to some silent, environmental rhythm. This magical place was truly special, because even in the chaos of the natural surroundings, (where vines choked vines and branches beat down branches) it was perfect! It was hypnotizing! Although, there was still a sense that perhaps this was all a mask for a darker presence…

 

WAGOLL 2:

The jungle is a hot and steamy world where enormous trees loom up to the sky, lush vegetation, ferns and fungi thrust up from the forest floor, and vines and lianas curl around the tall trunks, reaching eagerly towards the high canopy. Buttress and stilt roots sprawl across the shallow soil. Orchids burst into incredible swirls of colour and form, frogs and butterflies flaunt vibrant hues, emerald snakes glisten, parrots soar in a blaze of orange, scarlet, blue and green while hummingbirds probe exotic flowers for nectar. Toucans and birds of paradise add to this amazing colour spectrum. A myriad of plants and animals find their own special niche in this kaleidoscope of life and energy.
