LO: To be able to effectively describe a character. (GROW)

SC1: I can effectively describe appearance.

SC2: I can effectively describe actions.

SC3: I can use dialogue to describe a character. 


The slides will tell you when to watch this video 



In today’s lesson, we start in the ‘grow’ stage of our learning. We will begin to

create our own character, for a different text, using the skills we have learnt in

character descriptions. 

You will need to evaluate the work of others, identifying features which make a

good character description, and familiarise yourself with the checklist you made

last week to plan your very own, brand new character.


THings I would like you to include

 - Varied sentence openers - start your sentences with something different every time. It could be Fronted adverbials, a verb, a noun or an adjective. 

 - Can you include personification when you are describing a character. For example

His eyebrows sat heavily on top of his eyes. 

Her hair danced in the wind. 


By the end of the lesson you should’ve:

Planned your new character

Reflected on how this character is better than your first attempt.
