Spelling activity:

In order to practise your homophone spellings, complete the activity sheet below. You will need to look at the spelling word, say it out loud, cover it then write it out. After that you will need to check it against the original word and make any corrections if necessary.

Today in English, you will write a character description.


In order to help you to do this, use your retrieval and inference skills that you have demonstrated over the week.

It would be a good idea to use your ideas that you have generated about the characters over the last two days.

When you write your character description, you will only choose one character to focus on.

Here are some factors to consider – try to include them in your writing:

  • Include powerful adjectives.
  • Use the ‘show not tell’ method (try to describe body language so we know how the character is feeling rather than just saying how they feel)
  • The characters personality (you could use the showing not telling method here)
  • Describe the characters physical appearance.
  • Actions, thoughts, feelings
  • The background of the character – what do we know?


I have included a word document below that has two very good examples of a character description. It would be a good idea to read them first to give you a better understanding or some ideas on how to write your own.


You can either type up your character description on a word document or you can write it in your book.


I will look forward to reading you character description.
