Wednesday

The link below takes you to a lesson on identifying the features of a character description. This will help you when preparing to write a character description later in the week. Listen really carefully and think about how you can make sure you are paying attention to detail. 

Thursday

Go through the PowerPoint provided below which teaches you how to create a detailed picture of a character. 

 

TASK: Complete the 'Creating a character' sheet.

How to create a character using 'show not tell'

Creating a character

Friday

Complete the task provided on yesterday's PowerPoint. See the image below which shows you what you should be including. I have included images of some familiar characters you could describe if you are struggling to think of your own. 

 

Tips: take inspiration from the people around you. Think about the people you know really well as that will help you use 'show not tell' to describe them. 

 

Example:

As the clock struck 8:45, she slurped the last mouthful of the once-hot coffee from her flask and placed it precariously on the edge of her desk, dangerously close to her laptop. Her shoes her waiting for her underneath the whiteboard and she grabbed her coat on the way to the door. 

"I'm going to get them in!" she shouted towards the front of the classroom as she exited towards the rear, hitting the top of her leg on a table. The clock struck 8:46. 

 

 

Who do you think is being described in the example above (it's someone you all know)? What do you learn about the character from the short description?
