Mythical creature description

November 23rd, 2017 | Posted by Mrs Ashton in Teacher Posts | Year 4 Archive

This week we have been planning our myths linked to our project and next week we will begin to write them. As part of your story you thought about a mythical creature that will be included in your heroes journey. On this blog page I would like you to write a detailed description about your mythical creature. Take your time, think carefully about the detail, describe your mythical creatures appearance, use powerful adjectives that will really help to build a clear picture of your mythical creature in my mind. If you have time you could start to describe the setting where you creature lives too.

I am confident that you will produce some great descriptions for the world to read.

Have a go at using similes and metaphors to describe your mythical creature such as;

  • Hydras teeth were like vicious daggers
  • His tail was fierce like a whip lashing in the wind
  • He had teeth like tombstones and eyes like the moon
  • …with wings as powerful as an Eagles
  • Her feathers were as fragile as glass


Here is a little example to start you on the right track;

I stumbled upon this magnificent creature in a magical, enchanting forest. With wings as powerful as an eagles and eyes as dark as the night, I watched it swoop effortlessly between the tall trees, soaring high and low amongst the treetops. With marble eyes it could spot its prey from a distance with ease. The Griffin had a tail like a slithering snake which swished side to side as he danced through the night sky…

    My mythycal creature is a humongous,petrifying, magma giant. It has long burning tenticals around its hard stail mouth and has bloodshot orange eyes. It lets out a huge deathaning roar and can spit hissing lava puddles that burn through wood as they disappear in to ash. It can swim in lava as hot as the sun and is as slow as a snail. It could devour a city in seconds and has blood made from scorching hot lava. The beast is also as evil as anything and would gobble up a human as quick as lightning bolt.

His eyes can burn through any source of material. The hydra gets bigger every time it eats anything. It also has another side that hesitates to battle and in the battle zilla.

    well done Year 4 these are fantastic descriptions. We have really focused on this in class this week so I wonder if you could now write an improved description? Perhaps you could write a description about one of the dragons we have looked at in class.
