Today’s work is to think about the two characters that we met in chapter 6: Augustus Gloop and Veruca Salt. We are going to think about how Roald Dahl creates characters. Discuss these questions with someone else or think about them yourself:
For today’s task, we are going to plan for tomorrow’s character description. Think about which of the two characters you would like to describe. Underneath, I have included some word mats to get you started but beware, not every adjective is suitable for each character. It is your job to choose the best ones.
You can plan this however you want. You could start of by drawing a picture of them while listening to chapter 6 again or you may want to rewatch yesterday's video clips.
Before you start, you may want to think of what you want to describe.
You might want to think about the kind of words that you want in your description:
Tricky – Adjectives from the word mat, FANBOYS conjunctions.
Trickier – Adverbs, ISAWAWABUB conjunctions
Trickiest – Similes, ISAWAWABUB conjunctions at the start or in the middle of your sentences.
Spend no more than 30 minutes planning your description.
