This worksheet is an excellent way to develop children’s descriptive writing skills when it comes to creating mood. There are a number of activities that help pupils understand the effect their writing has on the reader, which can be taught in a single lesson or spread over a number of sessions.

There are images to give children ideas for their writing, and sections of model text that demonstrate how an author’s choices can change the mood of the text.

It’s a great way to revise previous learning, and to experiment with new ideas.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

  • Understand
    Add in the missing words so that the sentences match the mood named above them.
  • Challenge
    People might not always experience the same mood in the same place. Write two different sentences for both of the pictures provided, each evoking a different mood.
  • Test
    Underline the words or phrases that have been used to create the mood, then write down the mood which has been created in each section.
  • Explain
    Write three sentences which create a gloomy mood, circling any words you have used to create the mood. Then do the same for a calm and peaceful mood.
  • Apply
    Use the images provided to imagine you have been to both of these settings in a short period of time. Write a story about your journey. Making good word choices to show the reader how the mood changes between each place.
