Setting

Setting is where and when the action happens. While we associate setting with place and description, it is often intrinsically linked to character development too.  We can be fooled into thinking that setting is setting and character is character, but often, it is through the setting that character is developed.  In this section, the activities allow pupils to write their setting as an intrinsic part of the development of character and plot, as well as exploring links between setting and genre.
