Show (applying)

LO: To show my understanding of a character

SC1. I can consider different character features.

SC2. I can make detailed notes about a character

SC3. I can justify my ideas when choosing a favourite character.

You have now completed the book “A Bad Beginning”. Instead of starting a new one straight away, I would like you to think about the book you have just read and the characters in the book.

1) For today’s task, I would like you to write character profiles for each of the main characters. You will need to use your knowledge of the characters to help you build their profiles.

2) Once you have completed this task, I would like you to answer the following question:

 

“Which character was your favourite and why?”

 

When answering the question, you must explain your reasons for choosing your character. You should write a minimum of one paragraph on this subject.

 

To support you, with today's task, I have attached some word mats.
