Atmospheric photo of a real castle, with ten shaped gaps in and around for writing words, similes or phrases to bring the castle to life. A sheet of descriptive words and similes is provided for teacher guidance, for prompting and inspiring students. The picture is also provided free of writing gaps, for inspiration. Stand-alone creative work or warm-up for independent poetry or descriptive writing challenge. Fires imagination, rich language, and zest for writing, with its unconventional writing opportunity and the vivid impact of writing on and round this real, intriguing old relic.
