Imaginative writing: creating a scene

This resource guides students through an imaginative writing task, using the idea of two characters who get into trouble. The students make a series of initial decisions about the setting, narrative perspective and character. Then they follow a series of steps to support them in structuring their scene. Could work as a KS3 or a GCSE task.

The imaginative writing task:

All stories are made up of scenes. Often when we write a short story in class, we only have time to craft one or two scenes.
  • This task will help you to construct an effective narrative scene which ‘zooms in’ on the key part of a story to give it pace, tension and atmosphere.
  • Your story is going to be about two people getting into trouble. This could be a simple physical problem, like being stuck down a hole, or more complex like getting a message from a friend with bad news.
